On 5 April, he will be looking to do the same when he battles the brash French MMA champion Arnaud Lepont. Ng will hold nothing back from securing another resounding win on Asia’s largest MMA stage.
Arnaud Lepont is legendary for his charisma and crazy entrances and always goes looking for the KO right from the start of the fight. Lepont has outstanding striking skills and keeps moving forward during his fights. Although he lost his last fight, he has been working tirelessly to improve his ground game and promises to bring his best at ONE FC: KINGS & CHAMPIONS.
