Get ready for Geje Eustaquio vs. Adriano Moraes part two.
Team Lakay standout and reigning ONE Championship Interm Flyweight World Champion Geje "Gravity" Eustaquio gets the chance to become an undisputed world champion when he challenges reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano "Mikinho" Moraes this June.
The Eustaquio-Moraes title unification bout is set as one of the headliners on ONE's Pinnacle of Power card set for June 16th in Beijing, China.
Eustaquio (10-6), an entertaining striker fighting out of Baguio City, captured ONE's interim flyweight title back in January after outpointing former titleholder Kairat Akhmetov in a five-round unanimous decision win.
Reigning champion Moraes (17-2), an elite grappler from Brazil, is on his second run as ONE's flyweight king. Moraes defeated Akhmetov back in 2017 to reclaim the title, and is coming off a dominant title defense back in November in Manila, submitting Eustaquio's teammate Danny Kingad in the first round.
This will be Eustaquio and Moraes' second time to meet in a ONE cage, as the two flyweight stars locked horns back in 2014 for the vacant ONE Flyweight world title, with Moraes getting the second round submission win.
ONE Championship also revealed that China's own reigning ONE Women's Flyweight world champion Xiong Jing Nan will be making her first title defense against Argentinian Laura Balin.
Also expected to be on the card are Team Lakay standouts Kingad and Edward Kelly.
