EUSTAQUIO-MORAES 3 TO HEADLINE 1ST ONE EVENT FOR 2019



MANILA -- The third meeting between Geje Eustaquio and Adriano Moraes is officially on!

Eustaquio and Moraes will meet again for the former's ONE flyweight title in the main event of ONE: Hero's Ascent, the first stop of the promotion for 2019 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on January 25.

While Eustaquio himself confirmed the development over the Christmas season, ONE formally announced it on Thursday with two of his teammates at Team Lakay also seeing action.

Danny Kingad will take on Tatsumitsu Wada in a battle of flyweight prospects, while Honorio Banario battles Lowen Tynanes in a showdown that is part of the ONE Lightweight Grand Prix.

Eustaquio and Moraes split their first two meetings, both for the flyweight belt.

Moraes drew first blood in 2014 when he forced Eustaquio to tap out on a guillotine choke in the second round.

Eustaquio, however, avenged that defeat four years later, beating Moraes via split decision to become the current champ.

Now, both fighters will face off one more time for the same championship belt. (PNA)
