Garry Tonon continues his campaign back to the ONE championship featherweight title.
The grappling standout picked up a first-round submission win over Martin Nguyen on the main card of ONE 165 on Sunday in Tokyo. Tonon sank a nasty rear-naked choke at the 4:41 mark to get the tap. The 32-year-old also won a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his finish.

Tonon now is on a three-fight wining streak, all by submission, since his first professional defeat in 2022 when he challenged for the ONE featherweight title.
Tonon told MMA Junkie, in the lead up to the event, that he hoped to secure another title shot with a win at ONE 165.
