ONE Championship’s return to the Philippines just got more stacked.
Four Team Lakay fighters were added to ONE 164: Pacio vs. Brooks at the Mall of Asia Arena on December 3.
Former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio and current #4-ranked flyweight Danny “The King” Kingad will try to shake up the flyweight division when they face their respective foes.
Eustaquio targets his third straight victory in The Home of Martial Arts against “Wolf Warrior” Hu Yong in a match that could prove that “The Gravity” is far from done in the division he once ruled.
The 33-year-old Filipino is coming off impressive back-to-back wins, starting with his body kick finish of Toni Tauru before running circles around Min Jong Song.
Hu is a successful alumnus of ONE Hero Series, though, and he will be looking to bounce back following a decision loss to Eustaquio’s old tormentor Yuya Wakamatsu.
Kingad, on the other hand, will have his hands full when he takes on the in-form Gurdarshan Mangat in a match where he’ll defend his #4 spot in the rankings.
“The King” suffered a unanimous decision loss to Kairat Akhmetov in his last outing when the Kazakh’s wrestling proved too much for the 25-year-old.
He won’t have it any easier against Mangat, who’s also knocking on the door of the top-five flyweight rankings with a two-fight winning streak.
Also added to the Manila card is promising atomweight Jenelyn Olsim and bantamweight Jeremy “The Jaguar” Pacatiw, two young fighters from the Northlands who want to prove that they also belong among ONE’s top contenders.
Olsim takes on hard-hitting Meng Bo in the atomweight scrap, with both women looking to break into the rankings with an impressive showing.
Meanwhile, Pacatiw takes on Tial Thang as he looks to rebound from a disappointing finish against Fabricio Andrade.
The four Team Lakay stars will join the last remaining title holder in the Philippines, ONE Strawweight World Champion Joshua “The Passion” Pacio, who takes on Jarred “The Monkey God” Brooks in the main event.
