Geje Eustaquio (born on April 6, 1989), nicknamed “Gravity” is a Filipino martial artist from Baguio City. He is currently signed with ONE and competing in the Flyweight division.[3]

Early Life[edit]

Geje Eustaquio grew up in Baguio City where he first worked on his craft as a kickboxer at age 14. He made his transition to wushu then after and earned a scholarship in the University of the Cordilleras where he holds a Masters Degree in Physical Education and a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. [4].

Early Mixed Martial Arts Career[edit]

Eustaquio made his professional mixed martial arts debut on February 19, 2011 at URCC Baguio 3: Invasion where he scored a first round submission win over Rex Wa-o. After three matches, Eustaquio would make his ONE Championship debut a year later beating Alex Silva at ONE: Battle of Heroes on February 12, 2012.[5]

World Championship Run[edit]

After winning six of his next 10 matches, Eustaquio would get a shot at former World Champion Kairat Akhmetov, easily his biggest opponent to date. Eustaquio would lose via a controversial split decision - especially since he had Akhmetov dazed through legal upkicks in the first round before the referee halted the match. He restarted the contest a few minutes later, allowing Akhmetov to take a close decision win. [6].

With controversy surrounding their first match, the two met again at ONE: Championship: Global Heroes, this time for the interim ONE Flyweight World Title. Eustaquio got the nod of all three judges to exact his revenge on the Kazakh and win his first belt in the organization. [7]

It was announced that Eustaquio would face the division's other titleholder Adriano Moraes for the undisputed ONE Flyweight World Title.[8]

On June 23, 2018, Eustaquio became the undisputed ONE Flyweight World Champion when he defeated Adriano Moraes at ONE: Pinnacle of Power - starting the run of Team Lakay’s masterful 2018 where they won four World Titles.[9]

By winning four titles, Eustaquio - together with Eduard Folayang, Joshua Pacio and Kevin Belingon were given a hero's parade in the city of Baguio on December 3, 2018.[10]

Losing The Belt, Present[edit]

Eustaquio would drop his belt months later in his rubber match with Moraes at ONE: Hero’s Ascent at the Mall of Asia Arena in January 25, 2019. It would start a rocky year for Eustaquio where he’d split his four matches. He did end his year on a bright note when he scored a stunning win via spinning-back kick KO over Toni Tuaru at ONE: Masters of Fate in Manila last November 8.[11]

Team Lakay Wushu[edit]

Eustaquio is part of the famous Team Lakay Wushu group, which includes Eduard Folayang, Kevin Belingon, Honorio Banario, Danny Kingad, and current ONE Strawweight World Champion Joshua Pacio.[12]
