Mikey Musumeci is a rising Brazilian jiu jitsu star, who is considered one of the greatest submission grapplers in the world. He fights in ONE FC and has beaten all opponents in his five-fight career in the promotion. He spoke about training with Zuckerberg and was impressed with his toughness, in an interview with TMZ Sports on Youtube.

“So, the first time I trained with Mark, I expected… honestly, I expected him to be, obviously, super-intelligent. But, then when I saw him train, I saw that he was like this animal on the mat. He’s tough as f**k,” he told TMZ Sports.

‘Darth Rigatoni’ told the interviewer an incident that showed Zuckerberg’s gratitude and grit. He reminisced that after training with him, the tech mogul started training with another fighter. During the course of their back-and-forth, Zuckerberg fell really hard. This prompted concerns for his well-being by others present there.
