Gurdarshan Mangat secured a huge victory this past weekend in ONE Championship when he outclassed Yodkaikaew Fairtex at ONE 158. This was the second-straight win for Gurdarshan in the Flyweight division and after his fight, Gurdarshan had expressed his interest in fighting Team Lakay star Geje Eustaquio.

He noted that the fight would allow him to honor his late friend.

“Another thing for me personally is Kyle Reyes, my teammate who passed away. He helped me two to three times back to back getting ready for that [Eustaquio] fight, but those fights never happened. So for myself, I kind of hold that. It’s nothing against my opponent, it’s just something personal I hold in my heart that we prepared, day in and day out, three times a day for almost two years, and now he’s passed away, but I still want to complete it,” Mangat told.

The Filipino MMA star responded to the call out from Mangat and noted that he is ready to fight anywhere and anytime. Eustaquio also congratulated Mangat for his performance at ONE 158.

“I would like to congratulate Gary Mangat for winning tonight and I would say very good fight. Thanks for calling me out, brother. What a warrior does is to respond, and I want to say yes, let’s do it, anytime, anywhere. If you are healthy, let’s do It next week. I’m very much ready. If not next week, let’s do it next month. One more time – anywhere, any time, I’m ready. Let’s do this!,” he said (via ONE Championship).
