Mikey Musumeci Denies Autism Allegations: “I Literally Got Tested”

Mikey Musumeci Denies Autism Allegations: “I Literally Got Tested”

Mikey Musumeci is one of the top-ranking BJJ athletes of his generation – and among those who are most beloved by fans worldwide.

However, the world of grappling doesn’t lack those who want to badmouth or stir rumors about its athletes.
For example, in a recent social media comment section, Musumeci’s been accused of being on the autistic spectrum:

I like Kade [Ruotolo], but the level of Mikey autism is scary.

Which Mikey has denied in his own way – transparently and sincerely, while admitting to two other mental health states:

Bro I don’t have autism. I literally got tested.

I have very bad hyper focus ADHD and OCD together and lack of socializing when I was younger so I’m a bit awkward lmao.

Which can seem very similar though, I guess.
Just doing the best I can.

Musumeci recently beat his long-time nemesis Gabriel Sousa – and lost his cool in the post-fight interview.

He didn’t cherrypick his words much:

I competed with Gabriel like three or four years ago, and I lost this match, right?
So this match was to show everyone that when you have an obstacle, you overcome it.

My opponent talked a lot of sh*t about me for about four years.
I respect him so much, but for four years, he commented on every freaking post I did.

Then he did something very personal to me.
And when he did this personal involving family, that’s when I got angry.

But everyone talking sh*t: “Oh, you couldn’t beat him, there is no way… He’s a division heavier than you…”

Just submitted him easy as f*ck!
