Garry Tonon isn’t bothered by expectations or trolls

“It certainly adds a degree of pressure that wasn’t there, for multiple reasons, when I first started competing in jiu-jitsu. First of all, when I first started competing in jiu-jitsu nobody knew who I was. Also, I didn’t have any crazy expectations for myself. Really, it was a very different experience.”

Garry also has some experience dealing with the social media trolls due to his notoriety and adds that he isn’t bothered by them.

“That’s just the world we live in now with social media. Everything that people would normally say behind your back is public where everyone can see it. Not only do people feel comfortable doing that on their own social media channels, they’ll jump on one of my posts and say terrible things,” he explained.

“To be honest, I have fun with that kind of stuff. It’s all a bit of a game to me. I grew up in that era so I’m used to it. People saying negative things about me has never been a huge problem for me in my life. I got bullied a bit in school, but I always stood up for myself and had fun with it. I’m way more likely to turn something into a joke than take it seriously.”
