Mikey Musumeci challenges banned YouTuber Sneako to MMA fight

Current ONE submission grappling world champion Mikey Musumeci challenged former YouTuber Sneako to an MMA fight.

Five-time IBJJF world champion and current ONE flyweight submission grappling world champion Mikey Musumeci has teased an MMA debut in the past, but he’s now calling out one opponent in particular.

On Wednesday, Musumeci took to Instagram to challenge the former YouTuber known as Sneako to an MMA fight.

“So today I’m going to talk about bullies. Bullies are weak people that make fun of others around them to give themselves relevance and make themselves feel good. They pick on the differences of humans, which is the most beautiful part of humans, their uniqueness. I really don’t like bullies, guys. 

“There’s this guy named Sneako, making fun of me, making fun of my friend, making fun of jiu-jitsu. He calls himself a boxer, I’m a jiu-jitsu guy. Let’s have an MMA fight. I challenge Sneako to an MMA fight. I’m going to shut his mouth and take the bully’s lunch money.”

According to Wikitubia, Sneako is an internet personality who amassed over 2 million subscribers on YouTube before being banned from the platform. He is primarily known for his outspoken views opposing feminism, left-leaning politics, and “woke” ideas. He now posts on the alt-tech platform Rumble.

Per Musumeci’s video above, Sneako has criticized BJJ and Musumeci himself. Below is a video of Sneako responding to the New Jersey native’s recent submission win over Shinya Aoki last year.

While the likelihood of an MMA fight between Musumeci and Sneako is extremely low, jiu-jitsu fans are certainly enjoying Musumeci’s aggressive stance against bullies and are flocking to the comments to show support.

Widely regarded as one of the sport’s top pound-for-pound competitors, Musumeci went 4-0 in 2023, all in ONE Championship, winning three of those matches by submission. He is not currently booked for his next match.
