ONE “Century” Primer: Watch Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev Wreck Opponents Ahead of GP Finals
Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev will battle Christian Lee in the finals of ONE's lightweight grand prix this Sunday, and recently the promotion reminded the MMA world of "Dagi's" finishing abilities.
ONE Championship’s “Century” card will take place this Sunday in Tokyo, Japan, and one of the bouts on the stacked card will feature rising lightweight, Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev.
“Dagi” Arslanaliev vs. Christian Lee
Arslanaliev will face ONE’s lightweight champ Christian Lee in the finals of the promotion’s lightweight grand-prix. Arslanaliev was expected to fight former UFC and Bellator champ Eddie Alvarez in the finals. But recently it was announced that Alvarez has been forced out due to injury, and as a result, Lee has been tapped as a replacement. The latter’s lightweight title, however, will not be on the line.
Well, as you can see by watching the video below, the 24-year-old Arslanaliev has a habit of finishing fights. All eight of the rising fighter’s wins have come via TKO, KO or submission.
Here is the line-up for Sunday’s “Century” event, which has been split into two cards (via MMA Fighting).
Angela Lee vs. Jingnan Xiong
