Mikey Musumeci is making a big splash in the world of martial arts. Most recently, he did so with his recent performance in the ONE Flyweight Submission Grappling world title match, against Cleber Sousa, which he won via unanimous decision.
And now, Mikey has decided to take it one step further… He wants to compete against sambo athletes as well!
Here’s what he said on a recent social media post:
There’s a funny quote from Khabib. He said: “If sambo was easy, it would be called ‘Jiu-Jitsu’.”
So, let’s have the sambo guys compete against the Jiu-Jitsu people. Let me fight the top world champion of my weight class in sambo and let’s see which is superior in the submission grappling format.

He challenged the MMA legend Demetrious Johnson for a match in the same, respectful way:
I honestly think me and Mighty Mouse would be the biggest match in jiu-jitsu history if we did that. We will make a special rules match, for sure.
Like, obviously, because he’s a brown belt now, maybe we can make it where there are no leg locks allowed. And we can make it with some cool rolls where it’s really cool for everyone.
I think that this match would just be such a huge thing for Jiu-Jitsu because we would have the MMA audience and Jiu-Jitsu audience together. All of us watching this match, I feel like that would bring a lot of new faces to watching Jiu-Jitsu.
