LOS BANOS--Aung La N Sang became only the second fighter under One Championship to hold two world titles at the same time after taking the One light heavyweight belt in front of his fellow Burmese compatriots at One: Quest for Gold at the Thuwanna Indoor Stadium in Yangon early Saturday (Philippine Time).
N Sang, the reigning One middleweight titleholder, dethroned Alexandre Machado of Brazil in just 56 seconds of their main event clash to join Martin Nguyen, the reigning featherweight and lightweight champ, as two-division champs.
N Sang struck a high kick to Machado's head that knocked out the latter for good.
In the co-main event, Ev Ting defeated Ariel Sexton of Costa Rica via split decision to get back into contention of Nguyen's lightweight title.
Meanwhile, the Filipinos went 0-2 in Yangon.
Krisna Limbaga fell prey to Indonesia's Prescilla Gaol as the latter made a unique armbar using her legs to force the former to tap out at the 4:05 mark of the very first round.
Roel Rosauro, on the other hand, lost to China's Li Kai Wen via a guillotine choke in just 43 seconds.
