According to ‘Buchecha,’ Kade Ruotolo is having a’very good moment’ in his short career right now.


Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida, a rising star in his own right, recognized early on that Kade Ruotolo was destined for great things.

When Kade and his twin brother Tye originally emerged as grappling prodigies, they were practically still in diapers at the time, thus the 17-time world champion in Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) has been following both of their careers since the beginning.

At this point in time, the Ruotolos are thought of as being at the vanguard of the new age of youthful and fantastic submission grapplers in the world. After the event, Kade Ruotolo went on to win the first ever ONE lightweight submission grappling world championship.

In a recent interview with the promotion located in Singapore, ‘Buchecha’ stated that he was immensely happy of the accomplishments of the 20-year-old but that he wasn’t quite astonished by the heights he went on to reach:

“This is a very exciting time for Kade. The Brazilian superstar remarked that “He just improves his game, he fights well on top, and he fights well on the bottom.”
At such a young age, Kade Ruotolo has actually built up a remarkable number of accolades thanks to his training at the renowned Atos stable under the direction of Andre Galvao.

His greatness has been obvious from the first day he competed under the ONE banner, during which he has not been defeated in any of his four grappling-only fights.

During his most recent bout, which took place in June of last year at ONE Fight Night 11, Ruotolo was able to successfully defend his 26-pound gold title against fellow ADCC world champion Tommy Langaker. The bout was a highly intriguing 10-minute technical war.

It would appear that Ruotolo is looking for new challenges and will soon follow in ‘Buchecha’s footsteps by making the switch to mixed martial arts.

In the meantime, ‘Buchecha’ will keep working toward his goal of winning an MMA world championship on August 4, when he watches ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs Grigorian on Prime Video.

The grappling whiz, who is 33 years old, will finally get his hands on ‘Reug Reug’ Oumar Kane in what has the potential to be a massive heavyweight matchup with significant repercussions for a shot at the world title.

Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok will serve as the host location for ONE Fight Night 13. Prime Video subscribers in North America have unrestricted access to watch the entirety of the event live and for free on US Primetime.
