The Mighty Mouse keeps training Jiu-Jitsu for the love of it, but also because he wants to earn the black belt one day.
Here’s what he had to say about it in “The MMA Hour” interview:
Life’s too short not to explore different avenues, and it’s something that I want to do.
And I don’t want to do a lot of things. But that’s something I was like, no, I want to do it.
I really want to get my black belt. I’m a brown belt now.
Mikey Musumeci, too, would love a submission grappling match against Johnson:
It would be an honor to grapple with him and that would probably be the biggest match of my life in grappling so far, like with viewership.
I don’t know, just stepping on the mat with the “Mighty Mouse”, to touch a legend, would be so cool.
