As if “ONE Championship: Quest for Power” was not violent enough, Aung La N Sang promised MMA fans that his upcoming rematch with Vitaly Bigdash is going to be nasty. The two will fight for the second time at “ONE: Light of a Nation.”

“I’m going to make it nasty,” Aung told Frontier Myanmar. He said “ONE: Light of a Nation” is a fist fight and it is going to be violent.

Aung's current record is 19 wins, 10 losses and 0 draw. His 10th loss was the ninth and most recent win of Bigdash, who is still undefeated and reigning as ONE middleweight world champion.

Losing to Bigdash apparently made Aung a better fighter. He said, “It showed me what he’s able to do. Winning gives you confidence but losing gives you character.”

On Jan. 14, Aung and Bigdash fought for the first time. The latter won via unanimous decision at “ONE Championship: Quest for Power” in Jakarta Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonesia.

ONE Championship is kind enough to bring the rematch between Aung and Bigdash in Myanmar, the home country of the latter. This will boost Aung’s morale but for him to steal the ONE middleweight world champion title, he needs to compensate for Bigdash’s power and conditioning, Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao said in a statement released by ONE Championship.

“ONE: Light of a Nation” will take place on June 30, Friday, at the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar. Here is the complete fight card:
