However, his life took an epic turn when he was launched into the world of mixed martial arts in the year 2015.

During this schooling at the Watchung Hills Regional High School, Mickey also discovered an interest in the field of wrestling and football. In fact, he was popular as the captain of the football team in his school.
Mickey then became a full-time student at the Rutgers University, studying for a degree in communication.

On 6th February 2016, he was challenged by Mike Jackson (a newcomer) whom he defeated via submission at the UFC Fight Night 82, in an unbelievably short time span of 45 seconds. Unfortunately, Mickey had to take a short break due to a painful herniated disc following the event.
