De Ridder Meets Ruotolo in Grappling Superfight

The matchup will mark the return of De Ridder since losing his ONE Light Heavyweight World Championship to Anatoly Malykhin. The grappling showcase will allow him to return to his roots against an incredible opponent while also allowing for the middleweight division to work itself out in the process. For Ruotolo, it’s an opportunity to take on a larger opponent and display why he’s one of the world’s most incredible grapplers.

Ruotolo has been incredible in ONE to date. In his organizational debut, he stunned the martial arts community with a 97-second submission over Garry Tonon. The quickness of the victory was shocking. In his return, Ruotolo dominated Marat Gafurov with a wristlock submission to continue his rise to stardom.

The incredible grappling match joins the epic trilogy between Demetrious Johnson and Adriano Moraes and other stars such as Sage Northcutt and Aung La N Sang. ONE is bringing its unique brand to the United States for the first time and is showing fans the full breadth of martial arts with its top stars. Colorado will be rocking on May 5 with this growing list of sensational bouts.
