MMA Junkie reports that a flyweight fight between Kairat Akhmetov (20-1) and Geje Eustaquio (9-5) has been signed as the main event for "ONE Championship 61: Total Victory". The bustling capital city of Indonesia provides a flawless backdrop for our unique brand of world-class authentic martial arts action.

In his first fight since November 2015, Kairat Akhmetov lost the ONE flyweight title earlier this month in a unanimous decision loss to interim title holder Adriano Moraes. An incredible event is planned for fans in Jakarta, as we bring to you a tremendous clash between two top flyweights in Kairat Akhmetov and Geje Eustaquio. "It's going to be another awesome evening of compelling bouts, so join us as we broadcast live around the world!"

In regards to bouncing back, Akhmetov was quoted as saying "I am excited to get back in the cage and compete". As a result, the headlining title unification bout between Kairat Akhmetov and Adrian Moraes was moved to ONE: Kings and Conquerors just a few weeks later.

Geje "Gravity" Eustaquio, the Team Lakay product, last appeared in the cage at ONE Singapore late last May. Akhmetov returned to action, contesting One's 135-pound title against Moraes in a rematch on August 5, where the Brazilian handed him his first loss in 24 pro bouts.

"I will showcase my best skills in this bout, and take home the win for the Philippines", Eustaquio said. Thank you ONE Championship for the opportunity.

Eustaquio added: "Akhmetov is a world-class martial artist and I can't wait to test my skills against him. I will make sure to come well prepared".
