Eddie Alvarez made his much anticipated debut at ONE Championships inaugural show in Tokyo, Japan. Facing Timofey Nastyukhin in the first round of the Lightweight GP.

Nastyukhin shocked the world when he rocked Alvarez in the first round, before finishing him via punches to claim the TKO victory.

Former training partner of Alvarez and newly crowned UFC Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman sent some words of encouragement to the former two promotional champion.

Kamaru is referring to when Alvarez made his UFC run. Losing to Cowboy Cerrone before going on a three fight streak. This earned him the UFC title when he beat Rafael Dos Anjos via KO.
