Mikey Musumeci paid tribute to his late aunt after his most recent triumph and hinted at a monumental clash at the end of the year.


Mikey Musumeci entered his third defense of his title at ONE Fight Night 13 with one goal in mind.

As he moves forward in his career to represent the sport he has devoted his entire life to, ‘Darth Rigatoni’ hopes to blaze a trail for others to follow in his footsteps.

Another strong performance that was capped off by a finish was just what the ONE flyweight submission grappling champion was searching for. That performance came against Jarred Brooks, and it ended with a victory for the champion.

During his post-event interviews with ONE Championship, Musumeci shifted his attention to a different topic because he had already accomplished his goal.

The expert in Jiu-Jitsu explained that he and his family had recently suffered a devastating loss due to his great aunt Margarette’s passing, and he was also looking forward to the future to see what would come next. In addition to this, he was contemplating what might happen in the future.

In addition, Musumeci announced, with his victory serving as a tribute, that he is planning something significant for his subsequent visit within the Circle, which is scheduled to take place later on in this year.

The champion kept everyone on the edge of their seat before talking about the personal motivation that he carried into this match-up by first teasing the fans by noting that he can’t tell what it is yet and then saying that he can’t reveal what it is yet.

Therefore, we won’t know until later in the year, and I’m not sure whether I’m even permitted to speculate at this point. A few days ago, my great aunt Margarette passed away, and I want to dedicate this triumph to her memory. I’m fighting with other guys to win her over. I miss her so much and love her so much at the same time.”

Mikey Musumeci continues to be an amazing banner bearer for submission grappling, whether it be because of the way he carries himself as a world champion or the performances he puts on within the Circle.
