Reigning ONE Strawweight MMA World Champion Jarred Brooks, widely known as 'The Monkey God,' recently elucidated the origin of his distinctive nickname during a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session. In response to inquiries regarding the genesis of his epithet, Brooks attributed it to Hanuman, a revered figure in Sanathan Dharma celebrated for his unwavering devotion to Lord Rama.

Explaining the alignment of his fighting characteristics with those of Hanuman, Brooks articulated, "If you watch me fight I feel like my characteristics match very well to Hanuman, [who] has been a huge influence in my manifestation on what type of fighter and person I want to be. And I am the mother f*cking monkey god that’s it!"

This revelation provides deeper insight into Brooks' profound connection to the deity and elucidates how it informs his identity both inside and outside the ring.
