“I came to Singapore to do two things – practice jiu-jitsu and eat pizza. The pizzeria didn’t open until after the game. So I came here to do jiu-jitsu with Cleber and he was great. I worked really hard for this game. Ready, I’m ready. I haven’t had a day off for almost three months, so I’m fully prepared for this game.”
In his first ONE Championship match, the New Jersey native won the impressive submission of fighting icon Masakazu Imanari in just over four minutes.
The five-time IBJJF World Champion has 58 career victories in the submission fighting world. He will be looking for the winning number 59 on September 30th.
Mikey Musumeci believes the fighting rules submitted by ONE Championship will inspire the best competitors
ONE Championship continues to innovate, re-introducing the world’s in-ring submission fights to the world at ONE X, the promotion’s 10th anniversary event. Since then, the promotion has signed up an incredible array of submission fighting superstars and created a ruleset that encourages submission over survival.
Mikey Musumeci shared his thoughts on the ONE Championship ruleset, saying:
“It’s just a pure fight of two people trying to kill each other by committing. I feel like this format brings out the best version of Cleber. It should bring out the best in me because it’s just pure offense.”
The biggest difference between ONE Championship’s submission fights and what you’ll see in a typical BJJ match is the emphasis on submissions and submission attempts.
Inside the circle, there will be a 12-minute round to submit a fighting match, and the only way to win is by clicking or snoozing. However, if no submissions are made by the end of the time limit, the entrant with the most submissions will win.
There are no points. No decision. Whoever puts the opponent in the most dangerous situation wins.
