Jarred Brooks announced his entry to ONE Championship in style a couple of weeks back when he stopped Team Lakay star Lito Adiwang. A former UFC Fighter, Brooks has established himself as a top contender following his win over Adiwang, and speaking to ONE Championship recently, he talked about the troubles that he had to go through prior to entering the cage.

“Yeah, it was difficult to get there. I got [to Singapore] a day and a half before the fight, and I had to quarantine for 12 hours. And then on the weigh-in day, I just weighed in, did all my PR and media stuff the day before, and then went straight into the fight. I got to sleep maybe eight hours out of that 48 hours. We originally lost our flight to Japan, so we got redirected to London. And then we had a 10-hour layover in London. When I said, “Pinch me, I feel like I’m dreaming,” I literally felt like I was dreaming,” Brooks recalled.

However, once he entered the cage, it was smooth for Brooks. He relied on his strengths and got the better of Adiwang.

“Inside of the cage when I felt Lito, right when I felt him as far as grappling wise, I was like, ‘Okay, I think this is [going to be] smooth sailing for me. I was just literally trying to see where he was, as far as a striker. You know me, man. If I’m going against the best striker in the world, I’m going to grapple them. And if I’m going against the best grapplers in the world, then I’m going to strike them. It’s just how the game goes,” Brooks added.

Despite the quick win, he does not see Adiwang as a weak opponent.

“I wouldn’t say Lito was a weaker opponent than I expected, but he was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. But yeah, it was a great fight, and it couldn’t have gone any better, in my opinion,” he concluded.
