ONE Championship fighters Brandon Vera, Alain Ngalani and Aung La Nsang engaged in a spicy taco eating challenge. 'The Burmese Phyton' easily came out on top over the two heavyweight fighters.

Check out the video of the challenge below:


The three fighters were supposed to eat as many tacos as they could over three minutes. The former two-division champion devoured the entire tray of spicy tacos while Vera and Ngalani had difficulty finishing what was in front of them.

Vera and Ngalani clearly had a hard time tolerating the heat of the tacos. Meanwhile, Nsang went through the tray with ease, leaving just one taco behind.

"How's a middleweight whipping our a**?" the former ONE heavyweight champion asked.

Responding to Vera's question on how a middleweight was outlasting two heavyweights, Nsang said his mother's values helped him complete the challenge.

"I had a good breakfast so that my stomach could stretch and then worked out a little bit and the tacos was good... Growing up, my mom forced me to eat everything on the plate so this is what happened. I listened to my parents when I was growing up."

The futures of Nsang, Vera and Ngalani remain unclear. Nsang is the only one who has expressed a desired opponent. On Twitter, he and Yushin Okami agreed to fight and asked ONE Championship to schedule a bout.

Vera and Ngalani, on the other hand, have not made their intentions clear.
