Former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio, 30, of the Philippines is one of the three Team Lakay warriors competing at “ONE: Masters of Fate.” He will have his rematch with Toni “Dynamite” Tauru, 34, of Finland.

Eustaquio and Tauru were among the eight “ONE: Masters of Fate” fighters who participated in the official open workout at the Elorde Sports Center in Sucat, Parañaque, Metro Manila, Philippines on November 5, 2019. During the event, which was hosted by Mitch “The Dragon” Chilson, the Team Lakay fighter said, “I’m coming into this next bout with something to prove.”

“Things haven’t gone my way this year and I’ve had a lot of learning opportunities,” Eustaquio continued. “I can honestly say that I am a better martial artist now than ever before. This rematch with Toni Tauru is very important for me because it’s a win I would like to get back.”

“I want to be known as The King of Rematch and beating Tauru will prove that,” the former ONE Flyweight World Champion added. “Watch out Manila! Team Lakay is coming!”

Featuring 10 mixed martial arts matches and three Muay Thai contests, ONE Championship will hold “ONE: Masters of Fate” at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines on November 8, 2019.
