Senegalese wrestling sensation, Oumar “Reug Reug” Kane (1-0) is on his way to ONE Championship.

It was initially reported in late December that Reug Reug had signed with the Singapore-based promotion. For his likely debut, he was expected to face off with BJJ wizard, Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida.

As of Monday, South China Morning Post’s Nick Atkin reported that instead, the heavyweight prospect will be welcomed by the 4-5 (1 NC) Alain Ngalani. The bout is expected to take place at ONE’s first event of 2021 on Jan. 29 — it’s ONE: Unbreakable II.

Cameroon’s Ngalani, 45, has spent the entirety of his MMA career competing under the ONE banner. His biggest opportunity to date came in 2017 opposite the eventual reigning middleweight and light heavyweight king, Aung La N Sang.

More recently, Ngalani has been linked to a potential matchup with former UFC champion Vitor Belfort. “The Phenom” signed with the organization in March 2019 and has yet to make his debut.

In the case of Reug Reug, 28, he burst onto the scene in 2019 when he made his professional debut for Ares Fighting Championship. Welcoming him to the sport in December of that year would be the 6-3 Sofiane Boukichou. Ultimately, Reug Reug lived up to expectations for his rookie outing as he earned a second-round TKO.

Yeah, it was announced several months ago then went silent. Nobody has mentioned it over the past few months. It obviously fell apart for some reason.

You look like that and you're 4-5 at fighting - you're not a good fighter.

To be fair to him this is his 2nd career in fighting and he started late in mma at 38 years old after going 25-8-1 in pro kickboxing. So if you count total fighting record its much better than that. Rick Roufus did the same thing and started mma late and had a similar record after almost 100 pro kickboxing/boxing matches and he's an American Kickboxing legend. 

OneFC what the fuck though they fucked up 2 awesome matches in Vitor vs Ngalani and Reug Reug vs Buchecha for this 1 fight with no explanation on the cancelled fights people were looking forward to wtf...

Great screenname though TB

Could be more like Godzilla vs a Velociraptor. 

 

Rueg Rueg is about 265 and Ngalani has fought at 205. 

 

I think Rueg Rueg might ragdoll him and make it look easy. 

 

Fun fight regardless.
