It has been more than three months since the last bout of former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio, 30, of Baguio City, Philippines. The Team Lakay warrior is returning to the cage at “ONE: Enter the Dragon.”

Eustaquio earned the interim ONE Flyweight World Championship title on January 26, 2018 until he became the undisputed ONE Flyweight World Champion on June 23, 2018. However, he was dethroned by Adriano “Mikinho” Moraes, 30, of Brasilia, Federal District, Brazil on January 25, 2019.

Competing professionally since 2011, Eustaquio joined ONE Championship in 2012. “ONE: Enter the Dragon” marks his 15th outing in the Singapore-based martial arts organization.

Featuring six kickboxing contests and 10 mixed martial arts matches, “ONE: Enter the Dragon” will take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore on May 17, 2019. In the 10th bout of the evening, Eustaquio will compete in a ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix alternate bout against Kim Kyu Sung, 26, of Jeonju, South Korea.

Currently, Eustaquio holds a professional MMA record of 11 wins and 7 losses. In ONE Championship, he has 8 wins and 6 losses.

On the other hand, Kim has 9 wins and 2 losses. He is a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and he is considered one of the best flyweight MMA fighters from South Korea today.

Kim is making his ONE Championship debut at “ONE: Enter the Dragon.” He is training out of Evolve MMA in Singapore.

Born on November 5, 1992, Kim has been competing professionally since 2013. He previously competed in Top Fighting Championship, Art of War Fighting Championship and HEAT.

The Korean Evolve MMA fighter is riding a two-bout winning streak. He won both of his two most recent bouts via knockout via punch.

Selected from hundreds of applicants, Kim was one of the 16 MMA fighters from all over the world who participated in the Evolve Fight Team global tryouts in 2018. He made it to the official fight team of Evolve MMA along with Maria Mazar, 33, of Sao Paulo, Brazil, Troy Worthen, 26, of Florida, United States, Aleksi Toivonen, 27, of Lahti, Finland, Ryuto Sawada, 23, of Tokyo, Japan and Roshan Mainam, 23, of Thoubal, India.

At “ONE: Enter the Dragon,” Kim will solely represent South Korea. Eustaquio and Richard “Notorious” Corminal, 27, are the two representatives of the Philippines.
