In light of the fact that Joshua Pacio’s rematch against Jarred Brooks is rapidly approaching at ONE 166 on March 1, every single second counts for him.
During the inaugural event of the promotion, which will take place at the Lusail Sports Arena in Qatar, the top-ranked challenger will compete against the ONE strawweight multi-weight championship.
Although it has been more than a year after their explosive 25-minute fight at ONE 164 in Manila, Philippines, Pacio has demonstrated that he has made significant advancements in his game and that he is deserving of his position at the top of the weight class.
As the reigning champion of the category, Brooks will be facing his first significant challenge in this rematch. And if he is able to even the score with the Mash Fight Team standout, the mixed martial arts (MMA) great from Lions Nation hopes that this will be his final fight.
In an interview with The Mixed Martial Arts Superfan, Joshua Pacio shared his thoughts on his training camp that took place throughout the holiday season.
Just for a moment, the fight is scheduled for March 1st. For me, it is exactly the same as February, which means that it is approximately two months away, and for me, two months is equivalent to two weeks. Therefore, I need to put a lot of effort into my conditioning, and my head needs to be in the right place.

It is possible to do anything if one has the appropriate mentality. Even more impressive is the fact that ‘The Passion’s slate only demonstrates that the former divisional king does very well in rematches, particularly when his attention is more than one hundred percent.
Joshua Pacio emerged victorious in a match against Yoshitaka Naito and Yosuke Saruta when they ran it back, and it is possible that this match will follow a similar pattern for the superstar who is favored by the fans.
