“I have a strong grasp on my finishing techniques” – Mikey Musumeci is aiming for a submission win over Shinya Aoki at ONE Fight Night 15.

Mikey Musumeci is a dedicated practitioner of martial arts and he is eager to demonstrate his abilities in his upcoming appearance in ONE Championship.

On October 6, this Friday, the current holder of the flyweight submission grappling title will compete in a submission grappling match against former lightweight MMA champion Shinya Aoki at the famous Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. The event, titled ONE Fight Night 15: Le vs. Freymanov, will feature openweight matches.

Mikey Musumeci is aiming to demonstrate his superior submission skills by defeating Shinya Aoki.

Musumeci has demonstrated his exceptional grappling skills and has emerged victorious against all his opponents in the biggest martial arts organization. Opting to participate in a match against a renowned martial arts veteran who usually fights in weight classes three times heavier than him is not a decision that an ordinary athlete would make, as it puts him at a considerable disadvantage in terms of size and strength.

However, ‘Darth Rigatoni’ has a unique style and accepted the match against Aoki as a way to demonstrate his progress. “Improving my skill in finishing submissions has been my main focus since transitioning to no-gi,” Mususmeci stated in an interview with ONE.

Reworded: Jarred Brooks is determined to face Demetrious Johnson before the legendary fighter’s retirement, stating “The Time Is Now” for their showdown.

In 2021, I entered my first year of competition in no-gi. It has been approximately two years since I started dedicating myself to no-gi training, and it is a significantly different experience compared to training with the gi. In order to successfully submit opponents, precise finishing techniques are essential.

Musumeci has no doubt that he can achieve the impossible at the ONE Fight Night 15.

The BJJ World Champion, who has won multiple times, constantly strives to improve his already impressive abilities in grappling. His intense focus has led him to discover various methods of defeating opponents, such as his famous ‘Mikey Lock.’ He is confident that this new challenge will allow him to showcase his skills even more and hopes to achieve a feat that no one has accomplished in the nearly 20 years of “Tobikan Judan’s” career.

Mansur Malachiev is determined to defeat Joshua Pacio and is working tirelessly to achieve his goal. He is focusing on his training and is determined to come out on top in their upcoming clash.

Mansur Malachiev is dedicated to overcoming Joshua Pacio and is putting in relentless effort to reach his objective. He is concentrating on his preparation and is resolute in emerging victorious in their upcoming confrontation.

According to Musumeci, Aoki has never been defeated by submission in his 58 fights as a professional MMA fighter. This would speak volumes about my finishing skills and their accuracy, proving that I am technically proficient in finishing my opponents. Despite not having a physical advantage over Shinya, I am confident in my ability to finish the match.

Mikey Musumeci is confident in his finishing mechanics and is aiming for a submission win over Shinya Aoki at ONE Fight Night 15.
