Metamoris and Gary Tonon- Huh?

So, due to the fact that I have a 9-5 job and spend the majority of my conscious moments on the mat, admittedly sometimes it feels like I live under a rock.

This would be one of those times:

Metamoris

First of all, I had no idea Metamoris was even in a position to offer this kind of deal to any competitor, or that they had offered it to Tonon. Second, I had no idea there was a response on Tonon’s end, declining the offer. I found all of this out through Instagram: which Metamoris, let’s be real, that’s an equally brilliant and awful way to publish a press release. Awful mainly, but brilliant in the “There’s no such thing as bad publicity” sort of way.

What do you guys think? There is a HUGE piece of the story we’re (obviously) not getting here. Anyone know more about this? Let me know- otherwise, have a great day everyone!

One response to “Metamoris and Gary Tonon- Huh?

  1. I think the general consensus is to doubt the 140k figure. At least a flat rate . It sounds like it’s something he could earn if he competed in 12 Metamoris events a year and maybe got PPV points or something. Since Metamoris has never come close to having that many events a year, it seems like it’s worth a lot less especially since it bans Tonon from competing in EBI or Polaris
