All it needed for Carlos Alvarez to pick up his third-straight victory on the global stage of mixed martial arts was 57 seconds.
The Team Lakay rising star made quick work of Thai-French debutant Title Chai in the opening featherweight bout of ONE Friday Fights 36, which took place at the legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand on October 6.
As the opening bell rang, Alvarez wasted no time in asserting his dominance. Displaying a relentless offensive strategy, he immediately pressed forward, targeting a takedown that would set the tone for the entire bout.
Within the first 30 seconds of the fight, “The Limitless” executed a perfectly-timed takedown, showcasing his exceptional grappling skills and superior strength.
With Chai slammed to the canvas at the center of the ring, Alvarez seized the opportunity to capitalize on his advantageous position. The transition was seamless as he swiftly maneuvered and applied an anaconda choke on his opponent.
The submission move was executed with precision and finesse, leaving Chai with no option but to tap out.
With the impressive performance, Alvarez improved his professional record to 4-0 and kept his 100-percent finishing rate intact.
On the other hand, Chai downgraded his standing to 3-2 with the loss to the Baguio City native.
