Mark Zuckerberg has become increasingly involved with the BJJ world over the last few years, and now he’s even started training alongside Mikey Musumeci as well. He actually revealed that he found love for both BJJ and MMA after starting to train in the sports during the pandemic, in an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience last year. Since then Zuckerberg has clearly started to take things more seriously though, as he’s actually moved on from simply training in BJJ and even competed in a local tournament for the very first time earlier this year.
Mark Zuckerberg has been training BJJ under Dave Camarillo in the past, and this recent training session with Mikey Musumeci shows clearly eager to get in the highest level of training possible. While this is far from the first time that a celebrity has gotten involved in BJJ, Zuckerberg is definitely the richest and most powerful man to decide to compete in the sport. He’s one of the top ten richest men on the planet, and there’s no news as yet on whether Elon Musk or Bill Gates plan on making their BJJ debut any time soon.
Musumeci on the other hand is among the best competitors on the planet, and he’s repeatedly turned in some fantastic performances in the ONE Championship cage. He’s the promotion’s reigning flyweight submission grappling world champion, a title he’s already defended on two occasions despite only winning it at the beginning of the year. Musumeci has won multiple IBJJF world championship gold medals long before that, and has cemented himself firmly at the top of the sport in the lighter weight classes. In fact the only thing missing from Musumeci’s trophy cabinet at the moment is an ADCC gold medal, and he’s won everything there is to win.
Mikey Musumeci uploaded the footage of him training BJJ and MMA with Mark Zuckerberg in a recent post to his official Instagram account:
