Your mindset is probably the most important thing for success, both in life and on the BJJ mats alike. For, if you’re mentally tough and if you keep going forward – if you keep attacking – you’ll surely reach your goal. It’s just a matter of time.
Mikey Musumeci has that sort of a mindset. Coming into his upcoming ONE Championship match, he explained what’s going through his head:

Cleber [his opponent] should give me some really interesting reactions to the moves I’m working on. And we’ll see if I have the answer to how he defends the moves I’m working on.

My game is very straightforward. I’m always doing certain sequences, and I’m attacking every second, and my opponents… It’s on them.
Could they defend what I’m doing? And if they do, it stops my position. And if they don’t, I get it.

So we’ll see his answers to what I’m working with, and I’m excited to see if there’s something new that will expose something I’m doing wrong.

Musumeci also had words of praise for his opponent, congratulating Sousa’s mindset as well:

He’s a tough guy, just a really tough, solid guy. Like, he’s one of those guys who’s really hard to do things to.

It doesn’t matter what you’re doing to him – he’s just solid and tough. And he doesn’t give up, he pushes forward, he pushes the pace, he tries to break you mentally.
