Mikey Musumeci, a five-time IBJJF world champion and current ONE flyweight submission grappling world champion, is no stranger to the pressure that comes with being at the top of his game. But instead of letting it consume him, he has learned to harness it and use it as fuel for his continued success. He will put that strategy to the test once again as he faces fellow IBJJF world champion Osamah Almarwai in a highly anticipated ONE Fight Night 10 showdown. The event will take place in the Mile High City on May 5, and will be available live and for free on Amazon Prime Video for North American subscribers. In an interview with the South China Morning Post, Musumeci spoke about the challenge he faces against Almarwai and the importance of dealing with pressure in his career. “I live with the pressure,” Musumeci said. “The responsibility of being in the position I’m in is that you have to live with the pressure and you have to grow from the pressure. I feel like every time I had pressure when I won the worlds, I was like ‘Okay I’m used to it now,’ then the pressure would grow more, then it would grow more, then it would grow more. So I feel like it’s a responsibility but I’ve learned to live with it and use it as fuel.” Almarwai, who will be making his promotional debut, holds the distinction of being the first black belt IBJJF World No-Gi and Pan No-Gi champion from Yemen and the Middle East. Trained under legendary BJJ practitioner Andre Galvao, he has more than earned his opportunity to compete for ONE Championship gold. The Musumeci vs. Almarwai showdown promises to be an exciting matchup between two world-class grapplers. Fans of the sport won’t want to miss this historic event.
