Vitaly Bigdash has his eyes set on ONE Double champion Reinier De Ridder.
Bigdash, in his recent interview with ONE Championship, revealed that his goal is to become a two-division champion in the promotion.
“It will be a dream to try my luck against Reiner de Ridder. He is undefeated and a current ONE Light Heavyweight and Middleweight World Champion. I walk around at about 98 kilograms which falls in between these two weight categories so I either have to drop 8 kilograms or go up a couple of kilos. Going up is always easier. I’d like to try fighting in a higher weight class in the future,” Bigdash said.
Bigdash started his journey with ONE Championship back in 2015 and had secured a win over Igor Svirid. After this, Bigdash fought two times with Aung La N Sang and once with Leandro Ataides as well.
The Russian further went on to add that he is not overlooking the challenges ahead of him.
“First I must win against Aung La N Sang, then I can focus on De Ridder and other belts. Becoming a champion in two weight classes, that’s my life goal now, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s move up a notch and if I’m meant to win it, then that’s the way it’s going to be,” he added.
Bigdash will be going up against Aung La N Sang for the third time at ONE: Full Circle. What do you think will happen when the fight goes down? Let us know in the comments below.
