According to Tye Ruotolo, the crossover to mixed martial arts will likely take place ‘after the dust settles’ in submission grappling.

Published:

age of 20 years old The phenomenon of submission grappling Tye Ruotolo is on the verge of becoming a world champion in ONE, but he can’t seem to shed the thought that he would eventually switch to the sport of mixed martial arts, despite the fact that he is so close to achieving this goal.

Since they became competitors in ONE Championship in 2022, Tye and his twin brother Kade have entertained the idea of making the switch to mixed martial arts (MMA), and the Atos representative thinks it’s only a matter of time before the siblings put on the 4-ounce gloves.

In a recent interview with the South China Morning Post, Ruotolo stated that MMA is still very much on his mind, but that he wants to accomplish what he set out to do in grappling first before he enters the mixed martial arts cage. Ruotolo’s comments were made in reference to the fact that MMA is still very much on his mind.

The American celebrity, who is only 20 years old, stated:

I’ll make the adjustment “when the dust settles and you know and I’m ready to make the change.”
Given everything that has happened, Ruotolo’s planned debut in mixed martial arts (MMA) will have to be delayed for the time being.

After defeating the no. 2-ranked lightweight MMA fighter Dagi Arslanaliev through submission at ONE Fight Night 13, Ruotolo was not only given a performance bonus of $50,000 for his efforts, but he was also given a chance to compete for the inaugural ONE welterweight submission grappling world title. It is anticipated that this battle will take place later on in this year, and an opponent will be chosen in the near future.

The historic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok was the location of ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian, which was broadcast live on Prime Video. Fans in the United States and Canada who subscribe to Amazon Prime Video can see a free replay of all the action that took place throughout the event.
