Timofey Nastyukhin started his ONE Championship career with an upset finish over a highly touted Eduard Folayang and continues to impress by another KO win over former Legend FC featherweight champion Yusuke Kawanago in 92 seconds on the main event. The Russian has adapted well into the ONE Championship ruleset, scoring a second consecutive soccer kick KO after dropping Kawanago in a brawl.
Earlier in the night, the bout between former ONE Championship lightweight title contender Zorobabel Moreira (8-3) and Christian Holley (10-2) ended in a anticlimactic fashion, with Holley tapping out due to injury in 14 seconds, while BJJ champion Marcos Santana (1-0) made his successful debut against Ruel Catalan (2-6), quickly submitting the Filipino fighter within the opening round.
The fight card includes a pair of 4-man tournaments, where Huang Di Yuan and Wu Ze emerged as the Guangzhou Featherweight and Flyweight tournament Champions respectively

Polish women’s federation Ladies Fight Night is going to celebrate their second birthday this year on the 15th to 17th of December. Two days, two events with a lot of great bouts.
LFN in Poland is being titled the new Invicta FC. The Polish owners created this federation to give European women a chance to fight on a big platform.
Hosting their first ever event in December 2015, LFN will hold two great cards next week, that will feature women who have fought under many prestigious promotions, such as the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Glory, and Kunlun.
Two days of fantastic fights, intensified by a double dose of sports impressions. The name is not accidental, LFN 7 / LFN 8 combines two events, during which the best Polish fighters will be shown, as well as the best fighters from Europe (including France, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic and Romania)
The stakes are high, and we are electrified by the clashes between warriors such as Żaneta Cieśla vs Silvia La Notte and Patricia Axling vs. Cindy Silvestri. Mainly due to their vastness of their experience in the cage.
In the fight of the evening, the talented Romanian Cristina Stanciu will face Magdaléna Šormovádo. Stanciu fought twice in the UFC, but she was unfortunately cut from the promotion after suffering consecutive losses to Cortney Casey and Maryna Moroz.
Judyta Rymarzak vs Marta Waliczek is an amazing fight between two experienced kickboxers. Both making their pro MMA debuts on the night, we will witness a one-of-a-kind duel between two kickboxing perfectionists, as they look to transcend their skills into the MMA world.
