Former ONE flyweight title contender Danny Kingad promised to pick up the pace in training now that he has qualified for the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix.

Kingad recently dominated Tatsumitsu “The Sweeper” Wada, punching his way into the tournament, and plunging his way into the contest that includes former UFC champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, Reece “Lighting” McLaren, Yuya “Little Piranha” Wakamatsu and former division kingpin Kairat Akhmetov.

They will all battle for the chance to take on reigning flyweight kingpin Adriano Moraes.

"I’m very excited to showcase my talent against the best in my division. My hard work paid off, but this is just the beginning,” Kingad said. 

“Expect me to double my efforts and to train harder now that I’m already part of the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix.”

Kingad said he is willing to take on whomever the promotion puts in front of him.

"I'm looking forward to fighting the top talent and earning that world title. I think everybody has a right to earn their spot, and I'm here to earn my spot,” he said.
