Team Lakay pride! Can Lito Adiwang silence Jarred Brooks?
The event will be broadcast on November 26th. Both men are currently unranked despite being regarded as two of the top contenders in the division.
It is a fight that has been nearly eight months in the making. They were originally booked to fight at ONE on TNT Part II but the bout was cancelled.
Adiwang’s teammate Joshua Pacio recently described Brooks as ‘the weakest’ among the strawweight contenders. The American fired back and claimed the champion was ‘mad’ because he was coming to take his crown.
So Brooks will be looking to send a statement to Pacio by smashing his friend and training partner next month. Meanwhile Adiwang will have the opportunity to show the Rizin and UFC veteran that Team Lakay strawweights know how to fight!
