Jarred Brooks has one particular objective in mind that he would like to achieve in the next competition that he will be participating in, in addition to the general objective of pushing himself beyond the boundaries of his comfort zone.
Since making his ONE Championship debut, the American fighter has amassed a record of four consecutive victories in the strawweight division. Along the process, he has defeated some of the most formidable competitors in the division.
The current champion had to search elsewhere for his next opponent because he had already defeated Lito Adiwang, Hiroba Minowa, Bokang Masunyane, and Joshua Pacio, who had previously held the championship.
At ONE Fight Night 13, he discovered one that is more than adequate for a fighter of his stature and it was a match made in heaven for him.
Brooks will compete against Mikey Musumeci for the ONE Flyweight Submission Grappling World Championship on August 4 in Bangkok’s historic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium. The bout will take place in the submission grappling division.
Brooks may have been unbeatable at the strawweight class, but his next opponent is in a completely different league altogether.
“Darth Rigatoni” is one of the very finest grapplers on the planet, and he has already successfully defended his championship twice. This presents an unusual challenge for the strawweight champion, who is accustomed to having an advantage while competing on the mats.
Brooks is prepared to give it his best effort, despite the fact that it would take a major upset for ‘The Monkey God’ to unseat the champion.
Jarred Brooks feels that this battle will boost his profile and give him the respect that he deserves, despite the fact that it will not provide him the opportunity to become a world champion in two different sports.
During an interview with Sports Talk, he expressed his desire to move up the rankings even more with the help of this victory and explained his reasoning for doing so:
“You know what, I’m not a name yet, but when I finish with this match, you’ll know my name. I guarantee that everyone in Prime and everyone in ONE Championship is going to be familiar with Jarred ‘The Monkey God’ Brooks.
On Friday, August 4, fight fans in North America who have an active subscription to Amazon Prime Video will have the opportunity to watch the whole ONE Fight Night 13 card live and for free.
