Twin brothers Tye and Kade Ruotolo are two of the hottest rising stars in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and they will get the chance to showcase their talents on Friday, 20 May.
On Monday, ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong confirmed that both athletes will make their promotional debuts on the same card against a pair of established grappling superstars in Garry Tonon and Shinya Aoki.
The 19-year-old American siblings are BJJ black belts under Atos head coach and fellow ONE competitor Andre Galvao, who’s been preparing them for these epic encounters at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Like recent submission grappling matches in ONE Championship, these bouts will be contested over a single 12-minute round. But other rules have changed, with a key difference being that a winner will be declared even if neither athlete is submitted.
In a separate Facebook post, Sityodtong broke down the updated rules, which include potential yellow cards and winners being decided based on “real” submission attempts. (One Championship)
