The first match between Garry Tonon and Joao Miyao was controversial to say the least. This match, dubbed the Jiu Jitsu Battle 3 took place on June 8, 2013 in Los Angeles. At that time, Joao Miyao was the favourite and Garry Tonon was the underdog. There was no winner in regular time so the judges declared an overtime round of 5 minutes. At the end of the day, Miyao emerged victorious via a split decision.
Since that controversial loss to Joao Miyao, Garry Tonon has been angling for a rematch. Now, it appears the rematch is about to happen. This match will take place on August 2, 2015 and will be streamed live on pay per view at fivegrappling.com.
