ONE Championship Battleground Announcement
ONE Championship will be back under the spotlight on Friday, July 30, with ONE: Battleground.

Former two-division World Champion Aung La N Sang will make his return to the Circle in the co-main event as he battles the bruising Brazilian Leandro Ataides in a middleweight affair. Both men are trying to work back to a title shot and avenge their prior defeats to Reinier De Ridder.
