Multiple weight submission grappling champion [Garry Tonon has recently signed on to ONE](https://www.bjpenn…

“I THINK I’M GONNA MAKE MY [BELLATOR] DEBUT MAYBE JANUARY. I WAS PLANNING ON DECEMBER BEFORE THIS WHOLE SURGERY THING HAPPENED, BUT I WANT TO FOCUS A LOT MORE ON MY HANDS AND STUFF LIKE THAT. BUT YEAH, I THINK I’M GOING TO GO FULL IN NOW TO MMA AND MAYBE STILL DO SOME JIU JITSU MATCHES OR MAYBE FOCUS A LITTLE BIT MORE ON JIU JITSU AND THEN DO BOTH. I DON’T KNOW. I’M TRYING TO FIGURE EVERYTHING OUT NOW HONESTLY. IT’S ROUGH, YOU KNOW? […] I THINK 170 IS GOING TO BE GOOD FOR ME. I WAS TALKING TO [GEORGE] LOCKHART ABOUT IT, HE WAS SAYING 170. BUT HONESTLY, I FEEL LIKE I CAN MAKE 155, BUT MAYBE LATER ON IN MY CAREER. FOR NOW, I MEAN, 170 I THINK WILL BE GOOD FOR ME. I LIKE TO EAT, SO I LIKE TO ENJOY SOME FOOD. AT 170 IT WILL BE HARD BUT IT WON’T BE TOO CRAZY. 155 WILL BE LIKE SUPER HARD BUT I THINK I CAN GET IT DONE, BUT I WANT TO START WITH 170 FOR SURE.”

ain’t nobody gonna do shit 0-0 about to kill the whole roster haha 👊🏻

“IT DOESN’T MATTER TO ME [WHAT OPPONENT I FIGHT], HONESTLY. I’M 24-YEARS-OLD SO I’M GONNA FIGHT EVERYBODY ANYWAY. SO HONESTLY, I WAS THINKING IT’D BE REALLY COOL TO FIGHT THE CHAMPION IN THE FIRST FIGHT. I WAS THINKING OF DOUGLAS LIMA. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY THINK THAT DOUGLAS LIMA WOULD BE AN EASY FIGHT FOR ME. I REALLY THINK SO. I FEEL THAT ON THE GROUND I WOULD, YOU KNOW, PLAY WITH HIM AND THAT WAS WHAT I WAS THINKING. I THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE KIND OF COOL. BUT I MEAN, I GOTTA LISTEN TO MY COACHES TOO AND MAKE SURE THAT I GO ON THE RIGHT PATH BECAUSE I’M NOT IN THIS FOR TWO OR THREE FIGHTS, I’M IN THIS TO BE THE BEST IN THE WORLD. SO, I SHALL LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE I HAVE AROUND ME, BUT I HONESTLY THINK DOUGLAS LIMA WOULD BE AN EASY FIGHT. […] I BELIEVE IN MY HEART 100 PERCENT THAT I WOULD BEAT HIM (DOUGLAS LIMA) IN MY FIRST FIGHT. SO WHO KNOWS.”
