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.

Bruce Lee

A campaign has begun on the petition website change.org to change the name of Lee County, Fla. to "Bruce Lee County." The area was originally named after the civil war general, Robert E. Lee. But now a movement has been started by a group of local artists known as Artsemble Underground which, according to an NBC News report, is owned by Brian Weaver who said living in a county named after a confederate general does not make him proud.

Norma Dumont vs. Aspen Ladd full Fight video highlights - MMA Fighting

Norma Dumont fought cautious but smart taking a largely uneventful decision over Aspen Ladd in the main event of UFC Fight Night 195 Saturday in Las Vegas. Ladd, who hadn't been in the cage since December 2019, was coming back from a severe knee injury compounded by weight cutting problems. After failing to make weight for a bantamweight match-up two weeks ago, she stepped into the featherweight bout against Dumont on short notice and it all seemed to show. She did little the first three rounds allowing Dumont to build up a lead with little more than her jab. Though Ladd came alive a bit in the last two rounds, Dumont still managed to claim a comfortable unanimous decision.
