Official FloGrappling No-Gi Rankings

Kade Ruotolo is currently standing at the No. 2 Ranked 155lb grappler with recent wins over names like Vitor Oliveira, Ashley Williams, Jordan Holly, and of course, Ethan Crelinstein.  His grappling style could be characterized as controlled chaos: Ruotolo thrives in the scramble but always seems to be able to force the action where he wants it to go.

"'Be happy but never satisfied'- Bruce Lee

Even though I came away with the win in my last match against Ethan, I feel as if I didn’t compete anywhere near to my full potential. I wasn’t satisfied with my performance so with that being said I look forward to running it back with him. I think it will be a great match and I’ll be looking for the finish. -Kade Ruotolo

Crelinstein is a long-time DDS representative and 2x ADCC trials winner.  The No. 3 ranked 155 grappler has a 59% submission win rate - with some of his recent victories coming over names like Jonntas Gracie, Andrew Tackett, & WNO veteran PJ Barch. 

"I'm really looking forward to getting another shot at Kade on the WNO stage, I can’t help but feel like there’s some unfinished business between the two of us after our last match, he’s a beast and I’m excited to face him again!

With the Atos / DDS rivalry growing dramatically, this is a great chance for both Kade and myself to showcase our skills and face off with some added pressure from the backstory of our team rivalry."
