Eduard Folayang Submitted by Former UFC Champ Eddie Alvarez

Eduard Folayang failed to make it to the finals of the One Championship Lightweight World Grand Prix after losing to Eddie Alvarez in their semifinal bout at the Mall of Asia Arena on Friday night. Folayang was submitted by the former UFC lightweight champion in the very first round.

The fight was pretty even early on until Folayang threw a leg kick that sent Alvarez to the mat. Folayang went for the finish and unleashed his trademark ground and pound. The experienced fighter that he is, Alvarez remained composed and defended himself against the onslaught. He saw an opening and quickly reversed the position.

On top position, Alvarez immediately worked to take Folayang's back. He pulled Folayang's head for the setup and quickly sank in the choke. The Team Lakay had no choice but tap out.
