About Jarred Brooks

Jarred “The Monkey God” Brooks is on a mission to be the best strawweight mixed martial arts fighter the world has ever seen.

Born and bred in Indiana, Brooks grew up in hard-nosed wrestling rooms, learning at an early age the value of tough – and often grueling – training. To that end, he became one of the nation’s top scholastic wrestlers during high school, securing a perfect record and a 2012 Indiana State Wrestling Championship in his senior year.

After graduating, Brooks needed an outlet for his prodigious athletic abilities and quickly found MMA. By the age of 20, he was competing in amateur bouts, and at 21, knowing he had found his calling, he made his professional MMA debut.

The American leaned heavily on his top-tier wrestling and natural aggression to reel off 12 straight victories to start his career. During this time, he earned the “Monkey God” moniker for his ape-like strength, seemingly inhuman grappling ability, and destructive top game.

Before long, Brooks was showcasing his fan-friendly style of fighting to larger and larger audiences, competing against world-class fighters in some of the sport’s biggest organizations. 

By 2021, the Mash Fight Team product’s explosive takedowns and penchant for finding submissions caught the eye of ONE Championship, which signed Brooks to compete in the promotion’s loaded strawweight division.

Now competing in the world’s largest martial arts organization, Brooks scored three straight dominant wins inside the Circle, leading to a shot at strawweight king Joshua Pacio’s 26 pounds of gold. When the pair finally met at ONE 164 in December 2022, “The Monkey God” delivered a clinical performance to beat the Filipino via unanimous decision and claim the ONE Strawweight World Title.
