LITO Adiwang locks horns with former UFC fighter Jarred Brooks in one of the undercard bouts of “ONE on TNT II” on April 15 at the Singapore Stadium in Singapore.

Adiwang is coming off a huge win over Deep strawweight champion Namiki Kawahara, whom he knocked out in two rounds on Jan. 22 in Singapore.

Adiwang earned his spot in the ONE Championship roster after an impressive showing in Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series. He made his debut in the big league with a first round stoppage over Senzo Ikeda in 2019. He followed it up with a first round kimura submission of Pongsiri Mitsatit in 2020 before losing a close split decision to Hiroshi Minowa later that year.

Brooks makes his ONE Championship debut against Adiwang. He’s very experienced and has bounced around from different MMA organizations like UFC, World Series of Fighting (WSOF), Pancrase, Rizin Fighting Federation and most recently Bellator FC.

Brooks fought in the UFC from 2017 to 2018 and went 2-2. In his stint in the UFC, he fought but lost to current UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo by split decision.

Brooks’ most recent outing was in Bellator 237 in 2019, wherein he beat Haruo Ochi by unanimous decision.

Adiwang, who fights out of Baguio City’s Team Lakay, is 12-3, while Brooks is 16-2.

The main event features ONE lightweight champion Christian Lee (14-3) defending his belt against Timofey Nastyukhin (14-4).

Former featherweight titleholder Martin Nguyen (13-4) locks horns with Kim Jae Woong (11-4) in co-main feature.
