The incomparable Mikey Musumeci is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished submission artists on the face of the world at the present time. He is capable of getting anyone to tap from virtually any position.
However, the current holder of the ONE flyweight submission grappling world championship is fully aware of all of the complexities that are involved in setting up these submissions and is aware that fundamental aspects of human anatomy frequently play a significant role in the equation.
Musumeci has conceded that it will be difficult to perform a joint lock on “The Monkey God” Jarred Brooks at ONE Fight Night 13 this coming Friday. Musumeci will be defending his world strawweight title against Brooks for the third time. Brooks is the current king of the strawweight division.
“Darth Rigatoni” divulged the following information during an exclusive interview with the organization based in Singapore:
“In my opinion, it is going to be incredibly challenging to leg lock Jarred. He has itty-bitty legs, which is a disadvantage in no-gi grappling because competitors with itty-bitty legs, arms, and limbs make it extremely difficult to finish with joint submissions. Because of this, it becomes more difficult.”
Those who are skilled in ‘The Gentle Art’ are aware that it is much simpler to snatch an opponent’s arm or leg if they have longer limbs themselves.
Despite the fact that Jarred Brooks is an absolute unit formed entirely of muscle, he is only 5 feet 3 inches tall. In addition, let us not overlook the fact that despite his little size, the 30-year-old man possesses an incredible level of raw physical strength.
It should come as no surprise that the standout from Mash Team has never been submitted in his stellar MMA career to this point, and that he has eight submission wins of his own to his name.
Despite this, Musumeci is aware that he possesses a great deal more in his bag of tricks than just joint locks.
First of all, ‘Darth Rigatoni’ has an abundance of blood chokes at his disposal, which is a foolproof method to put the challenger into a ‘tap or nap’ position, just like he did against Masakazu Imanari and Osamah Almarwai. ‘Darth Rigatoni’ has proven to be successful with this strategy in the past.
