Brown Belt NoGi World Champion, EBI 1 Champion and ADCC veteran Garry Tonon faced fellow ADCC veteran Josh Hayden in the finals of an 8-man Super Fight Invitational at the Rock Solid Grappling Challenge Tournament at Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, PA on Sunday, February 22, 2015. Tonon has stayed active with a recent super fight against Javier Vasquez at the Gracie Nationals on February 8th. Two weeks later, he is testing himself again against Hayden who was a 2013 ADCC qualifier and well-known for his foot lock attacks.
Exactly one month from today, on Sunday, March 22nd, Tonon will be competing in a stacked 170 lbs submission only tournament at EBI 3 at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
Tonon displayed his wrestling take downs, deep half guard game, and foot locks during the match, while Josh Hayden exhibited strong sweeps and put the pressure on Tonon with his aggressive foot lock attacks. Will Tonon continue his hot streak or will Hayden beat Tonon at his own game? Watch the match below to find out.
