With a nickname like “The Lion Killer” and being involved in jiu-jitsu you’ve got to be able to back it up and Garry Lee Tonon has done more than that! As a multiple time World No-Gi & Pan Ams No-Gi Champion Garry has been on a hot streak of finishing a slew of opponents.
He’s been tearing up the FIVE Grappling circuit and is the first EBI (Eddie Bravo Invitational) Champion at 170 lbs. His submission over position style makes for extremely exciting matches like those that he’s had against Kit Dale, AJ Agazarm, Keenan Cornelius, and his epic match at the 2013 ADCC match against Kron Gracie that set the jiu-jitsu community abuzz!
In this video Garry shows a triangle choke escape and transitions to a leg lock set up where he can finish either with a heel hook or ankle lock dependent upon the competition rules.
