Longtime Colorado MMA fighter and Easton BJJ student Tyler Toner will be entering the ring this Saturday at the Ring of Fire 43 MMA Event! Toner will be facing off with fellow UFC veteran Cameron Dollar on June 2 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield in a featherweight championship fight.
In the 18 months since his departure from the UFC, Toner has continued to develop his skills at Grudge Training Center and Easton Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He credits both with helping push him every day.
“On Saturday afternoons when I’m done with six straight days of training, I always say I’m lucky to have survived another week,” admitted Toner. “It’s brutal training, but it’s exactly what I need. I’d be ready to go five rounds with anybody.(Since the UFC) the whole grappling aspect of my game has gotten a lot better,” Toner said. “I’ve especially concentrated on my wrestling, both offensive and defensive. I think I’m better at everything.”
