The Team Lakay mixed martial arts fighter from Baguio is regarded as among “a new wave of sensational athletes (who) come through and re-shape our perceptions of what martial arts can be.”

Black Belt describes the Filipino champion:

“ONE Strawweight World Champion Joshua “The Passion” Pacio is one of the most exciting athletes in the sport today. Each time the Filipino steps inside the ONE Circle, he is looking to add another finish to his impressive highlights reel as he continues to help grow the sport in The Philippines with each and every performance. The Team Lakay representative is not just building his legacy in ONE, but in his homeland, as he becomes a bigger star and inspires a new generation.”
