Musa Alsulaimani is built different.
Yeah, yeah, that phrase is a bit of a cliche nowadays. But let me frame it this way:
- 2019 National Champion boxer out of Penn State
- Two-time All-American
- Wins his MMA debut via … submission (obviously)
- Trains alongside Bo Nickal and company at American Top Team – Happy Valley
- Started a successful company in college
And, oh yeah, he’s doing all this while juggling life as a 25-year-old father and husband pursuing a career inside the steel cage … and he’s crushing it.
“Moose” is still young in his fighting career, but there’s no doubt he’s taking all the steps to ensure a successful run to the top. American Top Team – Happy Valley has emerged as one of central PA’s elite training facilities, and Alsulaimani will only improve from here.
Speaking with 247 Fighting Championships General Manager Hunter Homistek on the Pittsburgh Combat Sports Podcast (subscribe here) Alsulaimani details his journey from boxer to MMA fighter. From that first wrestling session with the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club to his current routine at ATT – Happy Valley, Alsulaimani’s putting in that work –– and his goals are mighty.
Beyond the cage, Alsulaimani discusses life as a new father, his business venture (you’re going to want to hear this), and much more.
Throw on some headphones and enjoy the show.
P.S. Alsulaimani’s teammate Mike Kocjancic competes at our next event! Brawl in the Burgh 10 takes place Feb. 5, and it’s headlined by local legend and former UFC lightweight Khama Worthy. #BitB10 also features a trio of title fights with Ethan Goss, Cam Allgeier, and Syd Ross taking center stage at the Monroeville Convention Center. This one’s going to sell quickly, so:
