JB vs DT Jan 9
« on: December 10, 2020, 04:57:20 PM »
Just announced on Flo and themat.  They are facing off at 86 kg.   When he wrestled Aahid, JB was 178 lbs.  So he will be giving up some weight for sure.

If I paid for Flo this would be good.

Total mismatch.  Burroughs gets taken to the woodshed.

Define "woodshed" in this case.

Honestly, I don't think it will be a tech on either side.  Both are very good and will not allow a tech.  The weights are not that different.  There are many times a smaller wrestler will beat a bigger one.  It just happens.  This might be that case.  But they are only 20 lbs different.  JB might lose but I would be very surprised, very surprised if it was by tech.  DT might not win but it won't be because he got teched.  I just don't see it.  But anything can happen. 

That said, JB did lose in the Oly's by tech but he was out of his mind by that time.  He came back the next year and won the WC beating the guy who teched him the year before, and the next year took 3rd as well as in 2019.  Sidakov is the only one that has beaten him in 3 years of international wrestling since 2016.  He's tough as nails and won't be teched.  That's my opinion.  I will be really surprised if he does and would not doubt he hangs up his shoes if that happens.

No.... I dont see that at all. I'd say Taylor with a 6 pt advantage though

If JB is as quick on his feet as I am, and we all know how quick that is, he will be teched in the first period.  I trust he is bit quicker than I.

This is coming up quick.  Below is the card for the event:

155lbs (70.3kg) - Mitch McKee vs Tristan Moran

60kg (132.3lbs) - Ronna Heaton vs Desiree Zavala

215lbs (97.5kg) - Nate Jackson vs Wynn Michalak

61kg (134.5lbs) - Seth Gross vs Zane Richards

143lbs (64.9kg) - Ethan Lizak vs Matt McDonough

65kg (143.3lbs) - Nahshon Garrett vs Joey McKenna

51kg (112.4lbs) - Emily Shilson vs Erin Golston

152lbs (68.9kg) - James Green vs Pat Lugo

97kg (213.8lbs) - J'den Cox vs Hayden Zillmer

76kg (167.5lbs) - Adeline Gray vs Tamyra Mensah-Stock

86kg (189.6lbs) - Jordan Burroughs vs David Taylor


So J'den is going to have a match.  And James Green is getting all kinds of matches these days.   He's taking this very seriously.   And I have not heard McDonough is wrestling still.   So that is good for him.

JB and DT is postponed until Jan 13 due to covid and will take place in Lincoln NB. 

DT apparently was contact traced but will be ready to go on 13 Jan.

Taylor on criteria 4-4

Considering JB went up 26 lbs, that  pretty good showing on his part.  I doubt Burroughs was up to the full 86 kg.  I think the showing was good enough for Burroughs to bump for the future.  I don't think he'll be able to get back down to 73 and be strong enough to win.
