“I’m so ready” – Mikey Musumeci says he hasn’t taken a single day off in three months

Mikey Musumeci is in Singapore and he’s ready to fulfill a very important task this weekend: eat pizza. But before he does that, the man called ‘Darth Rigatoni’ has another very important task ahead of him.

At ONE on Prime Video 2, Musumeci will enter the ring for the second time in what will be the biggest match of his career thus far.

Mikey Musumeci will take on Brazilian fighter Cleber Sousa in US primetime to crown ONE’s first-ever flyweight submission wrestling world champion. Ready to seize the moment, Mikey Musumeci revealed at the ONE on Prime Video 2 press conference that he hasn’t taken a single day off in the last three months.

“I am here in Singapore to do two things: do jiu-jitsu and eat pizza. And the pizzerias don’t open until after the game. So I’m here to do jiu-jitsu with Cleber, he’s amazing. I worked very hard preparing for this match and I am very ready. I haven’t taken a day off for three months, so I’m really ready for this game.”

In his first appearance at ONE Championship, the New Jersey native earned an impressive submission from grappling icon Masakazu Imanari, scoring a submission in just over four minutes.

The five-time IBJJF world champion has 58 career wins in the submission grappling world. He will look for victory number 59 on September 30.


Mikey Musumeci believes ONE Championship’s submission grappling rules bring out the best in competitors

Always innovating, ONE Championship reintroduced the world to the in-the-ring submission grapple at the promotion’s 10th anniversary ONE X event. Since then, the promotion has signed a bunch of awesome submission grappling superstars and developed a set of rules that encourages submissions over survival.

Sharing his thoughts on the ONE Championship ruleset, Mikey Musumeci said:

“It’s just a pure battle of two guys trying to kill each other with submissions. I feel like this format will bring out the best version of Cleber. And it should bring out the best version of me because it’s pure attack.”

The biggest difference between the ONE Championship submission grip and what you would see in typical BJJ competition is the emphasis on submissions and submission attempts.

Inside the Circle, submission grappling matches will be a single 12-minute round and the only way to win is by touch or nap. However, if no submissions occur at the end of the time limit, the competitor with the most submission attempts will win.

Without points. No decisions. The man who puts his opponent in the most danger comes out the winner.
