Reinier De Ridder is all set to fight Vitaly Bigdash at ONE 159. The ONE Middleweight title will be on the line at the event and the stakes are clearly high for the showdown.

Ahead of his high-profile showdown with Bigdash, De Ridder had trained with Aung La N Sang who apparently gave some tips to the Dutchman.

Although it wasn’t much, De Ridder recalled what Aung La said in a recent interview with ONE Championship.

“Yeah, we talked about it a little bit. [Aung La N Sang] told me that [Bigdash] was pretty massive and that he missed weight twice. But hey, there’s not a lot there that I didn’t see already in the videos before. And he told me what I already know – that I’m going to dominate this guy,” De Ridder noted.

He went on to further add that Aung La hinted about Bigdash getting tired late in the fight.

“What else did Aung tell me about him? Well, that he’s strong, muscular, but we can all see that stuff. And that he got pretty tired in the end [of their fight], and that was pretty visual as well,” he added.

Reiner De Ridder and Aung La N Sang trained together at Sanford MMA earlier this year. The reigning champion had also trained in a string of other gyms during his time in the United States.

“I talked to Henri a couple of times when I was there in Singapore. He’s Dutch as I am, so it was easy talking to him. We had some meals together up there and he told me, ‘Why don’t you come over?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I might,’ and I brought my family and made it a trip,” he told about training at Sanford MMA.
