Stock in Christian
Lee
continues to surge under the One Championship flag.

Lee retained his undisputed lightweight crown in scintillating
fashion, as he put away Timofey
Nastyukhin
with punches a little more than a minute into their
One on TNT 2 headliner on Wednesday at Singapore Indoor Stadium in
Kallang, Singapore. Unable to build on back-to-back wins over
Eddie
Alvarez
and Pieter
Buist
, Nastyukhin (14-5, 7-4 One) crashed and burned 1:13 into
Round 1.

After failing to secure a takedown, Lee (15-3, 15-3 One) clipped
the Russian with a left hook, pushed him to the canvas and unloaded
with a barrage of punches. Nastyukhin failed to intelligently
defend himself from the assault, prompting referee Mohamad Sulaiman
to intervene.

The 22-year-old Lee has won six fights in a row, four of them
inside one round.

Meanwhile, Shuo Wang
wiped out Kyu Sung
Kim
with an elbow strike and follow-up punches in the third
round of their flyweight feature. Kim (15-5, 1-3 One) bowed out
1:51 into Round 3, as he suffered his third loss in four
appearances.

Neither man separated himself through the first two rounds. Kim
appeared to turn a corner in the third with body kicks and straight
right hands. However, Wang (12-4, 1-0 One) countered left hook from the South Korean and
stepped in with a devastating standing elbow. Kim collapsed and ate
a few more punches before the stoppage was called
.

Wang, 26, has rattled off five consecutive victories, three of them
finishes.

In other action, Shinechagtaga
Zoltsetseg
(6-3, 5-2 One) was disqualified after he delivered an illegal soccer
kick
to Yoshiki
Nakahara
(15-5, 3-1 One) in the second round of their
featherweight battle; Shuya
Kamikubo
(12-1, 5-0 One) submitted Mitchell
Chamale
(7-3, 0-1 One) with a rear-naked choke 2:13 into the second round
of their bantamweight affair
; and Janet Todd put away Anne Line
Hogstad
with a body kick 1:36 into the third round of a women’s
atomweight clash contested under muay Thai rules
.
