“And then you also have Shinya Aoki grappling against the legend, Mikey Musumeci, that’s another incredible battle. ” “And then you also have Shinya Aoki grappling against the legend, Mikey Musumeci. Mikey Musumeci is about to engage Shinya Aoki in a grappling match. There is no one who can defeat Mikey. Nobody is going to be able to defeat Mikey in my book.
Mikey Musumeci has decided to make a temporary departure from the flyweight submission grappling class on October 6 in order to seek an openweight match against Shinya Aoki, a legendary figure in Japanese martial arts.
The bout between Musumeci and ‘Tobikan Judan’ will take place at the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. Fans in North America who have an active membership to Amazon Prime Video will be able to stream the ONE Fight Night 15 event live and at no additional cost.
As for Demetrious Johnson, he hasn’t competed since May 5th, when he won a unanimous decision over Adriano Moraes to wrap up the trilogy of fights they had been having against each other. Johnson is pondering retirement in the wake of his most recent victory at ONE Fight Night 10, but it is currently unknown which direction he is going.
