Tye Ruotolo intends to demonstrate that he is capable of being a well-rounded mixed martial arts competitor.
At the age of twenty, both Tye and his twin brother Kade have made a name for themselves in the world of submission grappling. Their next objective is to dominate the globe of MMA, and they intend to get started on this mission within the next year. People are curious about how long it will take for the Rutolos to mature into strikers despite the fact that they are still young enough to have plenty of time to do so.
During an interview with the South China Morning Post, Ruotolo was asked about the process of developing his striking behind the scenes, and he said the following:
“A significant number of jiu-jitsu practitioners are very accustomed to pushing and pulling. The blows appear to be delivered a little slowly, and there is no snap to them. On the other hand, Kade and I are hard at work behind the scenes. I believe that a lot of people are going to be taken aback by this.”
With victories over Garry Tonon, Marat Gafurov, and ONE Middleweight World Champion Reinier de Ridder, Tye Ruotolo has compiled a perfect 3-0 record in submission grappling competition for ONE Championship. Due to the fact that both of Ruotolo’s victories came in the first round, ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong awarded him a performance bonus of fifty thousand dollars. Ruotolo’s victories came against Tonon and Gafurov.
Kade Ruotolo has had success that is comparable to, if not even greater than, that of his twin brother. Shinya Aoki, Uali Kurzhev, Matheus Gabriel, and Tommy Langaker are among the opponents that the current ONE lightweight submission grappling world champion has defeated. Kade was awarded a performance bonus of $50,000 because of his victory against Kurzhevwas, which was his lone victory inside the distance.
It is not known when the Ruotolo brothers intend to make their first formal appearances in mixed martial arts competition. With that in mind, the entire world of combat sports will be keeping a close eye on the youthful phenoms as they compete for mixed martial arts (MMA) world titles in the hopes of one day becoming global celebrities.
