Alain “The Panther” Ngalani is one of the most physically imposing martial artists on the ONE Championship roster.

The Hong Kong-based athlete may look like a bodybuilder, but do not let his muscular frame fool you his athleticism is off the charts.

Despite weighing over 100 kilograms, “The Panther” has a mastery of his body that is usually reserved for men a fraction of his size.

His lifelong dedication to martial arts has helped him to develop stunning flexibility, strength, speed, and power. In fact, all of those attributes helped him win four Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Championships.

As fans eagerly await Ngalani’s return to the Circle, check out five of his most impressive feats of athleticism.

Heavyweight Strength


To mix it up with the elite heavyweights on the ONE roster, weakness is not an option.

Ngalani never skips leg day, and he moves numbers that put him on par with any of his rivals. Even when he runs out of plates, he can still find a way to push himself to the limit.

A Powerful Upper Body

“The Panther” is blessed with great genetics, which certainly plays a role in his athletic development. However, he also epitomizes hard work and dedication.

Ngalani’s massive arms and lats are a product of this relentless work ethic, and not even a small child will stop him from getting his reps in.

A Supple Panther

The Impakt Gym head coach is as heavily-muscled as a bodybuilder, but he moves like a gymnast.

His size does not make him tight or inflexible — instead, he blends his strength and power with unbelievable suppleness.

Flexible Flexing

Seeing the massive striker perform splits is enough to make most people wince, but it barely registers with him thanks to the years he has spent improving and then maintaining his flexibility.

“The Panther” must be one of a select few heavyweights with the ability to execute this feat, all while catching a ball.

The Panther High Kick


All of the above attributes lead to the desired goal of martial arts success.

Ngalani’s patented “Panther High Kick,” which he has used to dispatch many opponents over the years, is one of the end results. Not only is it fast and accurate, but, unless you’re 10 feet tall, it is going to hit you.
