Garry Tonon is one clever cookie. After some interesting fans noticed something shiny on the back of his shorts Tonon found himself t the center of attention once again:
Even though Tonon initially denied the reports he quickly conceded and explained it was all for his – now ex Japanese paramour.
“It was definitely a cell phone. I had a girlfriend [at the time] — she’s now my ex — and I got to Japan and she was like, ‘You know, Garry, I feel like you’re really distant. You’re not giving me enough attention.’ So, you know, I wanted to make sure that she was the first person I called right after the fight was over. I had it in the back right in the drawstring. So I pull it out after the fight. I’m super excited, wanted to tell her that I… won, and this guy answered the phone. He said his name was Dillon. So obviously I just had to end it right there.”
Of course the source video isn’t easy to find thanks to BJJ Scout having his instagram deleted over a dispute with flograppling. (New account can be found here).
