Mikey Musumeci, the reigning ONE flyweight submission grappling world champion, will attempt to cross an item off his bucket list on Friday, October 6 at ONE Fight Night 15, in Manila, Philippines.
Despite the fact that he has already established himself as a dominant champion in the flyweight class, he will not venture outside of his comfort zone in order to test his abilities.
‘Darth Rigatoni’ will compete against Shinya Aoki, a legendary figure in Japanese martial arts, in a bout that is scheduled to take place under the auspices of ONE Championship. No one could have anticipated seeing this matchup take place.
Musumeci, who can be considered one of the true pioneers of mixed martial arts (MMA) and grappling in Asia, will have the incredible opportunity to go up against a legend of the sport in this fight.
At the same time, it is a big task for “Tobikan Judan” to face one of the very greatest grapplers in the world today, who has shown no signs of slowing down since joining with ONE. ‘Tobikan Judan’ has been training hard for this fight.
Musumeci has demonstrated time and time again that he is one of the most original and risky competitors in submission wrestling thanks to his exploits inside the squared circle.
Mikey Musumeci is a conundrum that no one has been able to solve as of yet due to the fact that he has been able to easily defeat every adversary that has attempted to compete against him.
Aoki discussed the most significant advantages and dangers that his future opponent brings to the table in an interview with ONE Championship that served as a preview of the fight. Aoki said the following:
“I think that being flexible and being able to attack from the bottom in a variety of ways is [Musumeci’s] strong point.”
ONE Fight Night 15 will be broadcast live and for free during primetime in the United States for viewers in North America who have a current membership to Amazon Prime Video.
