Tye Ruotolo and his twin brother Kade continue to shake up the grappling world.

On Friday, it was Tye who pulled off one of the most impressive feats of the combat sports calendar, forcing a tap from decorated jiu-jitsu champion Garry Tonon. Tye caught Tonon with a D’Arce choke just 1:37 seconds into what was scheduled to be a 12-minute pro grappling contest at ONE Championship 157 on Friday in Singapore.

Watch the incredible submission above.

Kade Ruotolo also scored a win over a grappling legend in a 12-minute grappling contest at the same event, winning a unanimous decision against two-time ONE lightweight champion Shinya Aoki. The longer-haired Ruotolo twin used some slick maneuvers to wow the crowd and outpoint his more experienced opponent.
