Alvarez Injury Derails Grand Prix Hopes

After being eliminated from the ONE Championship Lightweight Grand Prix in March, Eddie Alvarez was re-entered into the tournament due to an injury to Timofey Nastyukhin, and now is out again due to injury.

Alvarez, former UFC and Bellator champion, will no longer return to Japan on October 13th, as current lightweight champion Christian Lee will step in to face Saygid Guseyn Arslaniev in the finals.

While Lee will be battling for a chance to be the Lightweight Grand Prix champion, his ONE title will not be on the line in Tokyo on October 13th against Arslaniev.
