Pale UFC light-weight champion Eddie Alvarez returns to action at tonight’s ONE on TNT 1 tournament for a bout with Iuri Lapicus.
Alvarez (30-7 MMA) will doubtless be returning to action for this first time since scoring a first-round submission victory over Eduard Folayang in August of 2019. That victory marked Eddie’s first below the ONE banner, as he had suffered a TKO loss to Timofey Nastyukhin in his promotional debut.
Within the meantime, Iuri Lapicus (14-1 MMA) will doubtless be having a see to rebound from the principle loss of his profession when he squares off with Eddie Alvarez tonight. The Italian suffered a TKO loss to Christian Lee in his most latest look this past October.
Round one begins and Eddie Alvarez is ready to shoot in and rating an early takedown. He straight begins raining down ground and pound. The referee steps in and yells about a relief within the head blow. Alvarez continues to work and the referee jumps in and prevents the contest. He’s pronouncing that it’s now not a plot cease nonetheless in its build a terminate due to a strike to the relief of the head. Eddie is pleading his case that the strikes had been vivid.
