The fight between Jarred Brooks and Lito Adiwang was the subject of many discussions in the MMA community. In one of the interviews after the fight, Brooks noted that Team Lakay makes some kind of excuses whenever Adiwang suffers a loss.

Brooks was referring to the comments made by Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao who suggested that Brooks probably made one of the kicks look like an illegal shot.

“Well, I mean, that's been said the whole time, right? He's been saying that every Filipino fan is going and saying that too. Nothing against Team Lakay, okay, but it seems like every time Lito loses, they have an excuse. Like the last time with [Hiroba] Minowa, I don't think Minowa necessarily tapped. It didn't look like he tapped. Mark [Sangiao] is a great coach but just stick to coaching,” Brooks told during his interview with Asian MMA.

ONE Strawweight Champion and Team Lakay star Joshua Pacio has now responded to the comments from Brooks.

"We're not making excuses. We really accept that Lito lost to him. We'll find a way so they can have a rematch. That is what Lito wants. What we were saying before was there was no low blow in that kick. That's a leg kick,” Pacio said during an interview with local media.
