– It is MMA grappling against submission based grappling

Submission based grappling and grappling in the cage are two very different things. Shinya Aoki is a Judo black belt and BJJ artist. Garry Tonon, on the other hand, is a submission grappling and BJJ based artists. Between the two, Aoki is more experienced in MMA grappling than Tonon. It will be very interesting to see how the whole match will go down ones these two artists meet in the ring, each one of them bringing in different experiences and expertise.

– Both are devastating submission artists

Shinya Aoki is a master of submissions. This has earned him the nickname Tobikan Judan, which simply means master of flying submissions. Aoki has won 25 matches of 39 courtesy of submissions. Among his deadliest submissions are the infamous gogoplata and the spine-cracking twisters.
Garry Tonon too has a host of wins in the grappling scene. Out of the 54 matches Tonon has taken part in, he has won 41 through submissions. His favorite submissions move is the heel hook, which he was taught by his coach, the legendary John Danaher. Every time Tonon steps into the ring, he is hunting for a submission and it is most likely that he will be doing the same on May 26.
