It’s beef! Jarred Brooks and Adriano Moraes in war of words
Jarred Brooks is working his way through the top ranked ONE Championship strawweights but seems more interested in the current flyweight champion. Him and Adriano Moraes have engaged in a war of words and things appear to be escalating rapidly.
Moraes doesn’t seem to think much of the American. According to Sports Keeda he said,
“Jarred Brooks is a sucker! A loudmouth! As soon as I got to American Top Team, I did some training with him. He likes to say he controlled me, but he never said how many times I submitted him. I submitted him several times. And, amazingly, I never met him in the sparring days. Sparring day, he always ran. He’s a sucker! If I get the chance, I’ll put my hand on his face.”
Brooks remembers training with the Brazilian but denies that he was ever submitted by Moraes:
@adrianomkmoraes wait you subbed me? And we worked out twice it was in the cage and none of that crap you said happened. Come on man I would spar with guys like Daniel Strauss, lineker there . Let’s just see who was lying about the good ol days soon hey ol chap?

At ONE: ‘X’ next month the Brazilian is defending his flyweight belt against Yuya Wakamatsu. Brooks doesn’t currently have a fight booked but, after winning two bouts in quick succession, he is expected to challenge for the strawweight strap next.
A move up to flyweight might not be completely out of the question though and Moraes confirmed he would be more than happy to fight his former training partner,
“He’s a talker. I am here. He’s only got two fights and he’s already talking s**t. Let’s see if he can handle the pressure going forward. Let’s see if this fight will happen in the future. I’m here ready for anything.”
