We continue our video series on wrestling this week with a freestyle match that was recently wrestled between Olympic Gold Medalist Jordan Burroughs and Kyle Dake. Both men are giants in the sport. For Burroughs, not only did he win the Olympic Gold Medal in 2012, but he is currently undefeated in international freestyle wrestling. He has not been defeated since 2009. Kyle Dake is a 4x NCAA champion. He was the first to accomplish that feat at four different weight classes. This year he battled Burroughs at the world team trials even before he graduated from college.
This is the second in a best of 3 series between the combatants. Burroughs won the first match easily, but he has his hands full in this one. It is safe to say that this match has birthed a rivalry that will keep things hot for years to come, as both men are relatively young.
