Will Brooks is in playoff action at PFL 9 on Saturday night, and in the quarterfinal round, he’ll be taking on Rashid Magomedov. The twist here is that the pair have shared a gym, even for part of Brook’s most recent training camp. So at the very least, he’ll be fighting an opponent familiar with him, and vice versa. Beyond that, there’s two fights in a night to contend with, across a possible total of five rounds.
Speaking to Cageside Press Thursday, Brooks — who has published “Amateur Hour Cooking” videos to his Youtube channel, gave a few tips on skirt steak before getting to the meat of the issue: the PFL playoffs, and PFL 9.
On his approach to the two-fights in a night format, Brooks said he’s treating it “like a training day.”
