Former ONE Championship champion Aung La N Sang is interested in seeing a showdown between Martin Nguyen and Garry Tonon.
The Burmese Python revealed the same during one of his interviews with SCMP MMA and noted that both are great fighters.
“That would be a great fight, both are great fighters, they were supposed to fight when Martin had the belt so this is the perfect time and he got to do it with me in Colorado that would be amazing. If that happens that would be amazing. If not, he’ll be there as well to support me. Either way it’s fine,” Aung La noted in the interview (h/t Sportskeeda).
Nguyen, had interestingly called out Tonon as well and hopes to lock horns with the American in the United States.
"The Situ-Asian" hopes to face "The Lion Killer" Garry Tonon, who he was initially supposed to face in a ONE world championship match, at the historic event. Nguyen has additionally shown an interest in taking on the former world champion challenger at ONE Fight Night 10 on Amazon Video.
As Aung La N Sang faces off against the "King Kong Warrior," Fan Rong, he will try to make it three in a row. After losing two of his previous three fights, Aung La made a strong comeback, defeating Gilberto Galvao and Yushin Okami in consecutive first-round knockouts.
With another win, Aung La will be looking to fast track back to the ONE Middleweight title which is currently with Reinier De Ridder. De Ridder had won both the Middleweight and the Light Heavyweight titles from Aung La N Sang but later dropped the Light Heavyweight gold to Anatoly Malykhin.
