Mikey Musumeci is facing against Jarred Brooks, reigning ONE strawweight MMA champion of the world, in a submission grappling match on August 4.
But, unfortunately for Mikey, it appears that his sister – Tammi Musumeci – will be rooting for Brooks.
Why? Mikey revealed in a recent interview with the Jiu-Jitsu Times:
My sister and him used to train a lot together.
They used to train together at American Top Team, and they were really good training partners there – so my sister’s a big fan of him, and she even said that she’s rooting for him over me in this fight!
So, Jarred has my sister on his side.
He is “confused”:
I don’t get it. My own sister, rooting against me. It’s kind of messed up.
I’m surprised my sister didn’t go to train with him for this.
Actually, I’m in Singapore right now, so little do I know, she might be with Jarred training.
They might be having a camp together.
Nonetheless, Mikey is expecting a tough match against Brooks. However, he doesn’t think loss is an option:
I think [Jarred] is a very tough guy – he won’t gas out, and I definitely think he has a lot of tools and elements to give me a challenging match.
I don’t think he has any tools to finish me.
I think he has tools just to make it hard for me to finish him.
