On August 4, ‘The Monkey God’ will compete in a bout for the opportunity to add another ONE world title to his collection. This bout will take place eight months after ‘The Monkey God’ won the ONE strawweight world championship with an outstanding victory against Joshua Pacio.
Jarred Brooks will compete against Mikey Musumeci for the promotion’s flyweight submission grappling world title at ONE Fight Night 13, which will include a co-main event that fans won’t want to miss. If “The Monkey God” walks out of the famed Lumpinee Boxing Stadium with Musumeci’s belt around his waist, he will make history by becoming the first fighter in the history of ONE to hold titles in both submission grappling and mixed martial arts. He will do this by becoming the first fighter in ONE history to carry titles in both submission grappling and mixed martial arts.
As for how Brooks sees things going in the highly anticipated fight, the current holder of the strawweight world title stated in an interview with ONE Championship that he could be able to put an end to the competition quite quickly:
Brooks stated, “I think that I get it done in the first, you know, 15 seconds,” regarding his ability to do the task. “Or if it goes the entire road, I think that all we’re going to be doing is learning how to play back and forth, man. He’s just incredibly smooth. The individual does not end up being truly submitted. Therefore, the only way I can see me submitting him is by getting something on him quickly, and I anticipate that my speed, my agility, and my athleticism will play a significant role in this.”
