As a reminder: Kade and Tye Ruotolo previously made it to the brown belt 2021 IBJJF World Championship final match, where they fought it out.
A lot of takedowns and throw attempts were involved, as well as quite a bit of submission attempts. In the end, it was Tye who managed to secure an Armbar victory.
