MMA fighter Ozzie Alvarez brutally ended Tyson Miller’s undefeated record to capture the welterweight title at Uriah Faber’s A1 Combat 7.
Alvarez and Miller met on the main card of the event on Friday in Wheatland, California. 37-year-old Alvarez was chasing his second straight win after bouncing back from a five-fight losing streak. While the 25-year-old Miller was gunning for his fifth straight victory.
With the scorecards fairly even going into the third round, the fight was truly in the balance with just over a minute remaining. That’s when veteran Alvarez unleashed a winging right hand out of nowhere that sent Miller thudding to the canvas before ending proceedings with savage ground strikes.
