Jocko Willink, a well-known motivational speaker, has teamed up with the Ruotolo twins, Tye and Kade.


It shouldn’t come as a surprise that ONE Championship phenoms Tye and Kade Ruotolo are cashing in on possibilities outside of the ring because they are, in fact, the biggest superstars in the submission grappling industry as it exists now.

Jocko Willink, a retired and decorated Navy SEAL who is now recognized as one of the most prominent motivational speakers in the world, took notice of the twins due to the unmistakable star power they possess.

Willink, who is also an author and podcaster, made the announcement in the form of a video posted to Instagram about his cooperation with the Ruotolos to have them serve as ambassadors for his supplement firm, Jockofuel.

In the video clip for the promotion, Willink can be heard saying that Kade and Tye represent the “next generation of Jiu-Jitsu.””I’ve known these boys ever since they were tiny kids, when we used to compete in jiu-jitsu events on the circuit in Southern California. These individuals have been putting in a lot of effort over their entire life, so I’m happy that we can support them, and be able to train with them, and give them what they need to keep going and keep elevating the level of the game. “
Willink, who has earned his own black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under the tutelage of Dean Lister, was even observed rolling with the amazing twins.

The brothers Kade and Tye Ruotolo are, without a doubt, jiu-jitsu and submission grappling’s current and future stars.

To begin, Kade is the youngest ADCC world champion in the history of the organization. Additionally, he is the reigning world champion in the lightweight submission grappling division for ONE Championship. The genius, who is only 20 years old, has successfully defended his world title twice, with his most recent victory coming against Tommy Langaker.

Regarding Tye, he not only holds the record for being the youngest person to win the IBJJF black belt world championship, but he also has a perfect record of three wins and zero losses in the Singapore-based organization.

This coming Friday, on ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian, Tye Ruotolo will face Dagi Arslanaliev, and he will be looking to make it four wins in a row when he does so. Prime Video will broadcast this event.

On August 4, Prime Video customers in North America will not have to pay anything to see the entire event that will be broadcast live from Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok.
