The Ruotolo brothers have taken the ONE Championship world by storm with their impressive grappling skills. Tye Ruotolo, a 20-year-old BJJ prodigy, is set to compete in a middleweight submission grappling superfight against reigning ONE middleweight world champion Reinier de Ridder on May 5 as part of ONE Championship's North American debut. Although Tye typically competes at lightweight, the same division his brother Kade reigns over as the ONE lightweight submission grappling world champion, Tye is open to the idea of competing against his brother in the future. "Fighting my brother would be crazy. I don’t know if it’s going to happen at 170. It definitely could. We got to find the right time," Tye shared in an interview with The MMA Superfan. "It’s not easy fighting your brother on a stage like that all the time. We’ve done it before, but that’s a big stage. I don’t know if he’ll get saltier than normal. But I’m really excited to see that match again." Before Tye sets his sights on a potential clash with his brother, he must first get through Reinier de Ridder, who is determined to get back on track after suffering his first setback in December. de Ridder is eager to settle the score with the only man to hand him a loss in mixed martial arts, Anatoly Malykhin, but he must first face Tye in what is expected to be a highly competitive matchup. Amazon Prime Video subscribers in North America can tune in to catch all the action live and for free in U.S. primetime on May 5. With Tye's impressive record and potential title opportunity on the line, fans won't want to miss a minute of the action.
