Mikey Musumeci took part in the press conference for his upcoming match at ONE on Amazon Video 2 and he already had his next opponent in mind, Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson. It’s an interesting prospect indeed, as Johnson is one of the greatest MMA fighters in the history of the sport and is known as an incredibly skilled grappler. But how would he fare in a regular Jiu-Jitsu match against one of the greatest competitors of his generation like Musumeci?
Given that Mikey Musumeci is calling for the match himself and Demetrious Johnson has previously engaged in mixed-rules fights with elite athletes from specific disciplines, it isn’t like the match is a million miles away. Musumeci had nothing but nice words for Johnson, but it’s clear that he’s eager to book that match:
“I think that Demetrious is an incredible martial artist. He’s the greatest of all time in MMA and he does all different rule sets, so it would be an honour if he would take part in that match and we can make history together. I don’t know if doing a mixed rules with him. I don’t do any stand-up or anything but it would be really cool if he would do a jiu-jitsu match with me.”
Of course before a match with Demetrious Johnson could even possibly take place, Mikey Musumeci has to get past Cleber Sousa and win the inaugural Flyweight grappling world championship at ONE on Amazon Video 2. While Musumeci does have some big goals for the future, he’s not overlooking the opponent in front of him either:
“I’m here in Singapore to do two things: do jiu-jitsu and eat pizza, and pizza places don’t open till after the match. I’m here to do jiu-jitsu with Cleber. He’s amazing, and I’ve worked so hard in preparation for this match, and I’m so ready. I haven’t taken one day off in like three months, so I’m so ready for this match.”
