Reigning and undisputed ONE welterweight submission grappling world champion Tye Ruotolo says he and twin brother Kade, the ONE lightweight submission grappling king, may look a like but are actually two different people.

The pair of 21-year-old BJJ black belts have varied approaches to living life, and it puts them each on a unique path on their fighting careers.

Speaking to ONE Championship in a recent interview, Tye says he is more of an introvert as compared to Kade, who is more outgoing.

The American star said:

"I probably hermit out more than Kade does. Kade enjoys making a lot of connections, sponsorship type of things. I like to hermit out a little bit. I’m outgoing, but when I’m at home, I’m happy. I think that’s the biggest difference."

Tye Ruotolo is set to lock horns with Jozef Chen in a 186-lb. non-title catchweight submission grappling contest at ONE Fight Night 23 on Prime Video.

The event broadcasts live from the iconic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
