The WKA fighter of the month is the current ONE middleweight world champion Aung La Nsang.

Fighting out of crazy 88’s MMA of Owings Mills Maryland, Nsang has a career of over 14 years of training in the martial arts.

Trained in BJJ by Julius Parks and MMA by Lloyd Irving, Aung has a pro MMA record of 21 wins and 1 no contest.

On November 3 of 2017 Aung successfully defended the ONE Middleweight World Championship in a super fight against heavyweight fighter Pierre Alain Ngalani defeating his opponent in the first round with a guillotine choke.

Aung stated that “a love of combat sports and being able to defend yourself as well as pushing your physical limits is what first attracted him to the world of combat sports; the idea of being able to compete excited him and after his first bout he was hooked”. Nsang went on to say that he has “a true love of competition”.

Aung informed the WKA during an interview for this piece that he “studies many quality fighters and has always had an affinity for the martial arts”.

While growing up he enjoyed films featuring some of his idols including Bruce Lee and Jett Li.

Aung has an immediate goal to fight for the next three years (the remainder of his contract with the ONE combat promotion) and to continue to defend the world middleweight championship as many times as he can during this time.

His training includes twice a day sessions for 6 days out of the week of sparring, technical work, wrestling, boxing, cardio and strength and conditioning.
These training camps take place 6 to 8 weeks before competition.

Nsang’s next big title defense will be on February 24 from Burma, Southeast Asia. Although his opponent has yet to be determined Aung is anxious to compete and successfully defend his title once again.

Nsang’s training is unique in the fact that he regularly “spars with pro boxers and grapples with BJJ world champions; doing everything he can to be a well-rounded MMA fighter”.

His advice to any new fighters in the world of martial arts is that “it is a long grind...if you look at my career I didn’t have anything for the first 12 years...if you’re willing to put in that work go for it...if not try something easier. Competing in combat sports is not for everyone”.

We at the WKA honored to recognize Aung La N Sang as the WKA fighter of the month.
