We know Joshua Pacio for his skills inside the cage but do you know Joshua Pacio the guitarist? The Team Lakay star explored his love for music during the pandemic lockdown and has been working on it for quite some time now.
“This year, I started playing the guitar consistently. Every second Sunday of the month, I lead our church in our worship. I’m happy that I’m starting to develop my skills in music. We just started practicing this year. But we continue to learn. Now we’re beginning to enjoy playing and singing, but I don’t have a good singing voice. I just sing along, play the guitar and play drums when needed,” Pacio noted during his recent interview with ONE Championship.
Just like his MMA Career, Pacio has embraced the challenges that the musical journey has thrown at him.
“It all started in a small prayer meeting in the pandemic. But it got bigger and bigger until it became a full-blown church and we had an agreement to take the music duties each Sunday. I like it because I’m getting to grow not just in mixed martial arts, but also spiritually. I also got to develop new skills because of it, like as stated - playing the guitars and the drums,” Pacio added.
As for his career inside the ONE Circle, Pacio has a long list of contenders waiting for him in the Strawweight division with the front runner being Jarred Brooks. A former UFC fighter, Brooks made an impressive ONE Championship debut recently by submitting Pacio’s teammate and Team Lakay star Lito Adiwang.
Brooks has already expressed his interest in fighting Pacio and it would be interesting to see whether ONE Championship will give Brooks the title shot.
