Former ONE Championship title challenger Luri Lapicus died Monday after a motorcycle crash in Italy. He was only 27. Lapicus crashed his motorcycle into a car driven by a woman in Milan last week.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones at this difficult time,” the org said in a statement to ESPN.

The resident of Italy competed against former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in 2021, a bout that went to a no-contest after Lapicus landed unintentional punches to the back of Alvarez’s head.
