Eustaquio back in the main event after 3 years

MANILA, Philippines – After three years of competing in the undercard of ONE Championship events, Filipino standout Geje "Gravity" Eustaquio will be headlining the upcoming fight card in Indonesia on September 16.

Eustaquio is set to face former flyweight champion Kairat "The Kazakh" Akhmetov in the main event of ONE: Total Victory, which will take place at the Jakarta Convention Center.

The last time that Eustaquio headlined a ONE Championship card was way back in September 2014, when he vied for the inaugural flyweight title in a losing effort against Adriano Moraes.

Since that setback, Eustaquio has won three of his last five bouts, including a first-round knockout win over Malaysia's Saiful "The Vampire" Merican in January 2016, and a split decision win over Thai rival Anatpong Bunrad in their rematch last May.

For the Filipino, competing in the main event once more is a privilege, especially against a former champion like Akhmetov.
