A great fighter is one that studies his opponents thoroughly before getting into the ring with them. This includes researching their every move and attribute in order to find weaknesses in their fighting style.
This is exactly what ONE strawweight world champion ‘The Monkey God’ Jarred Brooks has done in preparation for his explosive grappling superfight versus reigning ONE flyweight submission grappling world champion ‘Darth Rigatoni’ Mikey Musumeci on Friday night. The fight will take place in the grappling division and will be broadcast on NBC.
In the co-main event of ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian, which will be shown live on Prime Video, Brooks will compete against Musumeci for the coveted ONE gold.
On Friday, August 4, the event will be telecast live from the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
Brooks disclosed to the South China Morning Post during an interview that took place during fight week that despite having a limited amount of time to get ready, he has done his due diligence in researching Musumeci and is now completely prepared to roll with the multiple-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion. The interview took place.
The spokesperson of the Mash Fight Team, who was 30 years old, said:
“Even though I did want six months, I think that I’m prepared in three weeks after watching a lot of Mikey Musumeci matches,” he said. “I’ve seen a lot of his matches.”
Obviously, observing Musumeci on camera is not the same thing as going up against him in person on the mats. It is generally agreed that the 27-year-old Italian-American sensation is one of the best grapplers in the world, pound-for-pound, which means that Brooks will have his work cut out for him if he wants to beat him.
Fans in the United States and Canada have the opportunity to watch ONE Fight Night 13 live and for free on Amazon Prime Video. The event will take place in New York City.
