Burmese legend Aung La N Sang will always be one of the most dangerous fighters on the planet, and he proved that notoriety when he flatlined Leandro Ataides.

The pair of heavy hitters met in July 2021 in the co-main event of ONE: Battleground inside the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Aung La scored a massive knockout of Ataides, and highlights of that sequence were reposted by ONE Championship on Instagram recently. They wrote the caption:

"Chaos in the Circle 🤯 Who should "The Burmese Python" take on next? @aunglansang"

When the opening bell rang, 'The Burmese Python' hunted down the 'Wolf' immediately and peppered him with different combinations of punches and kicks. However, the Brazilian fired back with his own strikes, which made the opening phase of the match exciting.

Ataides tried to rip a page off Reinier de Ridder's winning blueprint against Aung La by taking him down the mat and beating him on the ground. However, the Kill Cliff FC athlete was able to stand back on his feet and keep the fight a striking match.

Eventually, the accuracy of the former two-division MMA world champion was too much for Ataides to handle, and the damage quickly accumulated. This led to a picture-perfect right hook that landed clean on the Nova Uniao representative and instantly put him to sleep.

It was Aung La's 11th victory under the world's largest martial arts organization.

Anatoly Malykhin doesn't have much desire to fight Aung La N Sang

Aung La N Sang has voiced out his intentions to face ONE Championship's first and only three-division MMA world champion, Anatoly Malykhin, after he won his third 26-pound golden belt at ONE 166: Qatar.

But the Russian knockout artist said that he doesn't have much desire to fight the Burmese icon, but if he insists, he will oblige and meet him inside the Circle.
