Jarred Brooks, the current holder of the title of ONE Strawweight World Champion, is moving into uncharted terrain. Up next. In his very first submission grappling combat ever in ONE Championship, ‘The Monkey God’ will face off against Mikey ‘Darth Rigatoni’ Musumeci, who holds the title of world champion in the flyweight division of submission grappling for ONE.
Despite this, the 30-year-old fighter from Warsaw, Indiana is certain that he can handle Musumeci’s grappling prowess and knows just how he is going to overcome ‘Darth Rigatoni’s savage submission attempts. Musumeci’s grappling prowess has been described as “one of the best in the world.”
In a recent interview with ONE Championship, Brooks discussed his strategy for avoiding certain death in the event that Musumeci goes for his limbs and explained how he believes he can do this.
The ‘Monkey God’ had this to say:
“When he grabs on to something, you need to make sure that you’re twisting out of it quickly and making sure that your knee line gets out of his hip line.”
Jarred ‘The Monkey God’ Brooks, the current holder of the ONE strawweight world title, is going to compete against BJJ superstar Mikey ‘Darth Rigatoni’ Musumeci in an attempt to win the ONE flyweight submission grappling world title.
