Reigning ONE strawweight world champion Jarred Brooks is seeking his next challenger in the highly competitive division. Find out more about the emerging contenders and Brooks’ upcoming fight for another belt.
Reigning ONE strawweight world champion Jarred Brooks, also known as ‘The Monkey God’, is at the pinnacle of his career in one of ONE Championship’s most competitive divisions. Having already defeated most of the top five fighters in his weight class, Brooks is now on the lookout for his next challenger.
The strawweight division is filled with talented fighters, and Brooks has already proven his dominance by defeating three marquee names. However, there are a couple of rising contenders who could potentially pose a threat to his reign.
In a recent interview with ONE Championship, Brooks had a message for the rest of the division: "A huge message to every strawweight out there in my division. Work hard, man, I want to fight every one of you guys."
Brooks has showcased his skills by defeating the third-ranked Hiroba Minowa and the second-ranked Bokang Masunyane with ease. He then went on to defeat former strawweight king Joshua Pacio in December, capturing the ONE gold.
As Brooks prepares to defend his throne in mixed martial arts , two rising contenders, Gustavo Balart and Mansur Malachiev, are hot on his heels. These fighters are determined to make a name for themselves and have their shot at the title.
Another Belt on the Line
Before returning to the world of mixed martial arts , Brooks will have the opportunity to add another belt to his collection. He is set to challenge ‘Darth Rigatoni’ Mikey Musumeci for his ONE flyweight submission grappling world title at ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian on Prime Video.
The event will take place at the iconic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand on Friday, August 4th. Fans in the United States and Canada can catch all the action live and for free on Amazon Prime Video.
