Don't let the title of this article fool you: Garry Tonon is no one-trick pony.

Known for his dynamic scrambles and willingness to relentlessly chase for the sub from anywhere, Garry Tonon is arguably the most entertaining grappler on the mats today. There's a reason he earned the nickname "your mom's favorite grappler," and it's entirely to due with his showmanship . . . right? 

Moving on.

While it's true that Tonon can end a fight from anywhere, the senior Danaher Death Squad leader seems to hold a trump card up his sleeve: lighting-fast heel hook finishes. Inside, outside, it doesn't matter — don't let Tonon control the position or the heel hook finish is inevitable.  

Need some proof? Watch these six finishes below.
