Yes, Garry Tonon Really Is Fighting AJ Agazarm This Weekend... In The Gi!

Agazarm vs Garry Tonon promo.jpg

You've probably been wondering what the hell has been going on these last few days. Fight To Win Pro 24, scheduled for this Friday in Los Angeles, had to contend with multiple pullouts and last-minute changes to its card. But, all clouds have a silver lining! 

After DJ Jackson pulled out of the main event and Edwin Najmi was confirmed to be facing Nathan Mendelsohn instead, a number of other changes were announced. 

First, Gabriel Arges got injured and had to pull out of his no-gi match with Garry Tonon (boo!). 

Then, Bill Cooper hurt his hand riding a bike and withdrew from his match with AJ Agazarm (double boo!). 

Sometimes the easiest thing to do is the most obvious. 

Garry Tonon. Versus AJ Agazarm. This Friday. In the main event. And it's going down in the gi! 



We've written before about the bad blood between these two, and Tonon jumped at the chance to fight AJ, even accepting the Gracie Barra rep's insistence the match must be in the gi.

AJ's written a disparaging rhyme. Garry's been frantically trolling him via three social media platforms. And that means that all the ingredients are in place for a crazy, crazy showdown. 

Fight To Win Pro 24 will take place on Friday February 3, starting at 6 PM local time (Pacific Standard Time). 

Watch it live or on demand ONLY here on FloGrappling.
