Tonon vs Matsushima

The Jiu-Jitsu star turned into a Mixed Martial Artist Garry Tonon is undefeated so far in his run. The 29-year-old American is the #5 ranked contender in the ONE featherweight division and has wrecked and finished all of his 5 opponents. Koyomi Matsushima is coming off a knockout win, following his world title loss against then-champion Martin Nguyen.
This match is a possible title-eliminator, the winner of which may face Thanh Le, given that the champion won’t have an immediate rematch against Martin Nguyen.
