Garry Tonon is a member of the Evolutionary Combat Team and will train at the famous gym while he is in Singapore. In addition to his training partner, he is also able to train with several world champions who are also part of the Evolution Combat Team, including the newly transferred Mikey Musumeci.
Tonon is not one to take his opponents lightly, and his upcoming opponent Kade Ruotolo is no exception. In fact, the New Jersey native has nothing but praise for the youngster and his twin brother as the sport’s next generation of stars.
The Ruotolo brothers will be playing their first match of the ONE Championship at ONE 157. Kade’s brother, Tye, will also be taking on wrestling legend Shinya Aoki in another card grappling match.
Garry Tonon goes back to his roots
In 2017, Garry Tonon announced his entry into the ONE Championship with a resounding victory, defeating Shinya Aoki in his first grappling match of the ONE Championship.
Since then, the 30-year-old has mainly competed in MMA, where he has been able to bring his success in grappling. In 2018, he defeated Filipino striker Richard Corminal via TKO on his MMA debut, showing the world that he’s ready to knock if necessary.
The win set up an incredible six-game streak that saw him finish his first five opponents. His incredible run culminated in a challenge for the ONE world featherweight belt held by Thanh Le. Unfortunately, Le ended Tonon’s streak of dominance in MMA with a modest first round TKO.
Thankfully, Tonon’s spirit hasn’t broken, and he’s now ready to face his next challenge. He will be competing in the sport that has made him famous and will certainly aspire to return to the winning track.
With presenting grappling brought into the limelight thanks to ONE Championship, there could be plenty of contenders for Tonon if he chooses to compete in the sport regularly.
