Lito Adiwang suffered a huge setback recently at ONE Championship when he lost to promotional debutant Jarred Brooks. A former UFC Fighter, Brooks managed to outclass the Team Lakay star in the main event of ONE: NEXT GEN III a few weeks back through a second-round stoppage.

The Filipino MMA star, however, is in no mood to slow down. Speaking to ONE Championship, Adiwang noted that he is looking for a big comeback.

“I believe that I was ready for his wrestling, I was honestly prepared for it, but I was surprised with his approach in the bout. I expected him to come in and test the waters with me on the feet and then try to take me down. But no, he had other plans. He decided to shoot right away and to be honest, he kind of frustrated me with that. What I can take away from that is the value of being relaxed, calm, and staying focused if things don’t go as planned,” Adiwang noted.

Despite the defeat, Adiwang learned a lot from his fight with Brooks and has a better outlook on his career ahead thanks to the fight.

“I believe that Jarred Brooks made me a better fighter. I’ve learned a lot from him. I’ve also learned a lot about myself. I found out that no matter how hard I try to improve, I have to continuously double my efforts because there will be better people out there. I know for a fact that I’ve worked hard on my wrestling, but when you compare it to someone like him who’s been wrestling all his life and who continues to polish his skills, then my improvements are already mitigated,” he added.

Adiwang and Brooks had some heated exchanges leading up to the fight but now that the fight is over, Adiwang has buried the hatchet.

“It’s all good. After the fight, I sent him a message, I told him congratulations and see him on top. That was my message to him, and he replied. He told me that he expects to see me again, but this time, on the top of the division,” he concluded.
