At ONE Fight Night 10, grappling fans will be treated to a match-up not to be missed when Tye Ruotolo makes his return to the Circle.On May 5, he will compete against the reigning ONE middleweight world champion Reinier de Ridder. He is a fighter who is always willing to put himself to the test against the absolute best in the world, regardless of weight class.Despite the fact that Tye is the undeniable expert in this matchup, de Ridder is widely recognised as one of the best grapplers who compete in mixed martial arts.
With twelve submission victories on his MMA record, ‘The Dutch Knight’ is a deadly opponent once the battle hits the mat; nevertheless, the issue that arises this time around is how well he will fare against one of the best no gi competitors in the world.
Tye Ruotolo is a master of technique, and along with his brother Kade, the Ruotolo brothers have become one of the biggest success stories in submission grappling over the past several years. His opponent will have a size advantage, but the Ruotolo siblings have become one of the biggest success stories in submission grappling.
In recent years, one part of the sport that both of them have had to adjust to is the rise of leg locks, which started to become prominent in high-level events. This has been one of the challenges they have faced.
In a recent interview with The MMA Superfan, which can be found on YouTube, Tye Ruotolo discussed the ways in which he has adapted to the changes that have occurred in submission grappling over the past several years:”I believe that the leg locks are becoming so much more advanced, and I believe that there are a few distinct rules that we found out to keep ourselves secure. We shouldn’t have any problems as long as those conditions remain the same. When those things change, we are going to run into problems.”At ONE Fight Night 10, which will take place on May 5, Tye will compete against Reinier de Ridder. Viewers in North America will be able to watch the full event live and without charge on Amazon Prime Video.
