Cordillera - Team Lakay's Geje Eustaquio has proven to the world he is the better fighter as he delivered superb techniques to dominate and defeat Kairat Akhmetov of Kazakhstan to win the ONE Championship interim flyweight title at the Mall of Asia Arena last night. 

The Igorot superb striking power and impressive ground defense worked in his advantage against the Kazakh's known take-down power. 

In their first meet up last September, Eustaquio lost in a split-decision but last night was a crystal clear unanimous victory which led him to his next opponent, the ONE undisputed flyweight champion Adriano Moraes. 

Eustaquio now joined the list of Filipino ONE champions who hold MMA world titles like heavy weight champion Brandon Vera.

"This belt is not mine, but it's ours. I'm proud to represent this flag, this country," said Eustaquio. 

He also called on ONE regular flyweight king Adriano Moraes, who was also among the audiences on the venue to give him another chance of fighting him. 

"Give me one more try, Adriano. I'll give you a better fight this time," Eustaquio said. 

In which Adriano responded, "Geje really deserved it tonight. I have too much respect for this guy. I'd like to do it again.".

Another Pinoy and proud Igorot Joshua Pacio, won an stunning performance last night, submitting Sanda champion Lan Ming Qiang with a head choke in the first round.
