MANILA, Philippines — Lito Adiwang will try to give one of the top strawweights in the world in Jarred Brooks a rude welcome in ONE Championship.

The two warriors will clash in ONE on TNT II on April 14 in Singapore.


Adiwang is expected to have his hands full against Brooks, who has had stints in several promotions including the UFC and Rizin.

The fight marks Brooks’ return in over a year or since he beat Haruo Ochi in Bellator & Rizin: Japan event back in December 2019 in Saitama, Japan.


The Team Lakay rising star, meanwhile, is coming off a knockout win over Namiki Kalahari last January.

Adiwang is 12-3 with 11 of his wins by stoppage. A victory over Brooks will definitely boost his chances of contending for the strawweight strap currently held by another Filipino in Joshua Pacio.
