Former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio is counting down the days until he returns to the ONE Championship Circle and attempts to scale the division he once ruled.
Though no definite date has been set on when Eustaquio, or anyone from Team Lakay for that matter, will return, “Gravity” and his squad have been honing their skills as they wait for ONE to call.
“This team works as a family,” Eustaquio said as the squad begins to ramp up their training in the highlands.
“We are glad to announce that everyone is fine and healthy. Everybody is excited to get back to action. It’s been a long time.”
The 31-year-old is inspired by all the talent surrounding him. After all, the division is so stacked that despite being just one of three flyweight World Champions in the history of ONE, he still wasn’t included in the initial rankings.
The exclusion lit a fire in Eustaquio as he’s now determined to make another run at the ONE Flyweight World Title, which will be disputed by current World Champion Adriano “Mikinho” Moraes and ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix Champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson on a future date.
And the division keeps getting more talented. On October 9 at ONE: Reign of Dynasties, for example, fifth-ranked flyweight Reece “Lightning” McLaren takes on Aleksi “The Giant” Toivonen in a match that could further stir the complexity of the division.
“Flyweight is one of the most stacked divisions in ONE Championship,” Eustaquio said. “All I can say is that I haven’t reached my full potential as an athlete. I welcome the challenge no matter how hard it is.
“As I’ve said, we’re used to starting from the bottom. God is with me and I believe that I will become the challenger in God’s perfect time.”
