Former UFC star Brooks, also known as “The Monkey God,” has been known to call out fighters in the strawweight division. The flyweight fighter revealed that his trash-talk is what has gotten him opportunities throughout his MMA career, telling The AllStar in January, “I’m definitely calling my shots and a closed mouth don’t get fed.” 

In an interview with South China Morning Post in February, Pacio voiced his decision to steer clear of trash-talking his opponents, including Brooks.  

“I’m not annoyed with him. I understand what he’s doing. I understand the business side of this sport. I think he’s trying to get in my head,” Pacio said. “But no man, that’s your thing. Do your thing, and this is mine. I can’t do trash-talking because this is my personality.”

“I’m setting an example for the next generation here in my country. It’s all about the core values of martial arts,” he added. “So just do his thing, whatever he wants.”

Brooks is undefeated in ONE Championship. He previously defeated Pacio’s Team Lakay stablemate Lito Adiwang and No. 4-ranked Hiroba Minowa. 

“The Monkey God” is set to fight No.1-ranked contender Bokang Masunyane in the world title eliminator at ONE on April 22, about which he said, “Bokang is better than Joshua Pacio. And if Bokang wants to fight Pacio then I think Bokang would beat him.”
