Shocking scenes in the ONE Championship lightweight grand-prix as superstar debutant Eddie Alvarez was beaten down by Timofey Nastyukhin.
This one did not go according to plan at all for The Underground King.
Outgunned from the get-go, Alvarez quite frankly looked out of sorts as his opponent Nastyukhin started to find his range with some powerful shots early on.
From there, Eddie tried to up his output but as he started to show a bit more urgency, Nastyukhin found his chin hard – causing the sequence that ended the fight.

Alvarez, alongside Demetrious Johnson, was signed to the blossoming Asian MMA promotion – with both guys scheduled to debut on the same card.
Eddie moves to (1-3, 1NC) in his last five bouts with this latest setback.
