ONE Championship returned to China on Saturday, and Timofey Nastyukhin scored another finished in the main event.
The Russian prospect, who stopped Eduard Folayang in one round of his promotional debut in December, finished Yusuke Kawanago in the opening round at the Guangzhou International Sports Arena in Guangzhou, China, improving to 9-1 as a mixed martial artist.

In the flyweight division, Wu Ze scored a second-round submission over Wu Hui Qiang before winning the tournament with a split decision over Yang Jian Bing.
