Aung La N Sang Reinier De Ridder

Vitaly Bigdash is out, Reinier "The Dutch Knight" De Ridder is in at ONE on TNT IV on Wednesday, April 28.

Bigdash withdrew from the live primetime event after contracting COVID-19, and the Dutchman was quick to accept the challenge.

Aung La "The Burmese Python" N Sang was originally slated to face Bigdash in an epic trilogy bout for the ONE Light Heavyweight Championship. Now, he'll get a chance to redeem himself from his last outing in a rematch against De Ridder.

The fun does not stop there in an incredibly packed six-bout slate.


Eddie "The Underground King" Alvarez returns against South Korea's Ok Rae Yoon in the co-main event.

Ok got a win in his ONE debut over #5-ranked lightweight Marat Gafurov and now gets a shot at a legend. Back-to-back wins in back-to-back events could elevate him right into the mix for the ONE Lightweight World Championship. Meanwhile, Alvarez is looking to remove the taste of his disqualification at ONE on TNT I and re-inserting himself into that same discussion.

"Reug Reug" Oumar Kane also returns to action in the main card. He'll take on Kirill Grishenko in heavyweight action.

The preliminary card will also be fireworks personified.

In the featured preliminary bout, rivals Eduard "Landslide" Folayang and Shinya "Tobikan Judan" Aoki meet once more with lightweight contention up for grabs.

In ONE Super Series Muay Thai action, strawweights Jackie Buntan and Ekaterina Vandaryeva go toe-to-toe. Buntan is coming off a dazzling ONE debut against Wondergirl Fairtex, where she shined with her powerful striking.

Colbey Northcutt returns in the opening contest against Aussie Courtney Martin.

The prelims get underway on the B/R app, B/R Live, Bleacher Report, B/R Live YouTube, and B/R MMA Twitter at 8:30 p.m. EST/5:30 p.m. PST.

The main card goes live on TNT at 10 p.m. EST or on the Watch TNT app at 10 p.m. EST/7 p.m. PST. The main card will also be available on TNT on a delay at 10 p.m. PST on the West Coast.

The main card will be available on Bleacher Report and the B/R app at 10 p.m. EST/7 p.m. PST with cable subscription credentials.

Few countries can claim to be truly ‘great’ at Muay Thai. France historically has been the best country outside of Thailand when it comes to Muay Thai – but this is probably due to fighters like Rafi Bohic who live and train on a camp in Thailand – the same way that boxers from Thailand do, as opposed to an inherently superior training system.
