Joshua Pacio only had one appearance in the year 2021 but he managed to make most of the appearance when he managed to keep the ONE Strawweight title in the Team Lakay cabinet. Now that 2021 is in the books, Pacio is looking forward to a bigger 2022.
The reigning ONE Strawweight champion is looking forward to the possibility of defending the title in front of the fans in the Philippines in 2022.
“For my career, it’s still the same – continue improving and make sure I continue to defend the World Titles. I hope to defend it in front of the fans here in the Philippines,” he said when asked about his goals for 2022 in a recent interview with ONE Championship.
Pacio also has high hopes for Team Lakay when it comes to the new year.
“Everything is a blessing for us, both wins and losses because we get to assess what we lack and what we can work on. We’ve been working and improving on our weaknesses, and that’s something that we will show next year – a team filled with more well-rounded MMA athletes,” he added.
When asked about his favorite memory from the year that went up, Pacio noted that it was all about being grateful.
“Surviving COVID-19. I caught the virus and I survived, so I’m grateful. And then, of course, the resumption of the training, and I’m happy to see my teammates get their big breaks here in ONE Championship,” he concluded.
