What happens if ONE Championship fighters lock horns with UFC fighters is a question that has been around for a long time now. There are many exciting fights that could happen if the two promotions decide to do a cross-promotional event and one such match is between Joshua Pacio and Brandon Moreno.
Fighting out of Team Lakay, Joshua Pacio is the reigning ONE Strawweight champion and has been on an impressive run. Brandon Moreno, on the other hand, has not suffered a loss since 2018.
Pacio talked about his interest in fighting Moreno recently in an interview with Manila Bulletin when quizzed about the UFC Fighter that he would love to fight. The Team Lakay star said that Moreno has an inspiring story while adding that it would be an honor to fight Moreno.
“It would be an honor to compete against him. I feel like if I can do it right, I will be stronger and more explosive as a flyweight. He has a very inspiring journey. Despite all those setbacks, he vowed to be a World Champion. He worked for it and persevered, and now he’s proven true to his word,” Pacio said.
He further went on to add that there are parallels in the journey of Moreno and Team Lakay.
“It’s like our story in Team Lakay. A lot of us struggled and came from nothing, but this sport opened doors and opportunities for us,” Pacio added.
