Have you ever wanted to test your Jiu-Jitsu in an “MMA setting”?
That is, to see how far BJJ can take you once punches are introduced into the equation?
Well, Mikey Musumeci wants to do it! Here’s what he had to say in a recent ONE Championship interview:
I want to fight in the future. I would love to.
I love challenging myself, and… I love the challenge of it, and I would love to make my Jiu-Jitsu work with punches being thrown.
I think that would be the coolest thing ever.
In other words, Musumeci wants to fight in MMA!
If I did MMA, I would be in the 125-pound division.
I think I’m really physically strong for that weight class, so I think that – if I learn stand-up from these best guys – I would have a really good shot.
He understands that he needs to work on his standup skills. But he’s confident that his work ethic will take him far in that endeavor:
I feel like in stand-up, it will be the same thing.
I’ll want to learn stand-up [so I could] be the best I can be in stand-up, and that [indirect] result will be me winning World Titles.
I think my work ethic, how I train, and everything, is perfect to become an MMA World Champion.
