Dake was dominant.  I like that he used a double underhook bodylock to win when that is what Paulson used to beat Dake.

I thought Greco was Dake's favorite style in high school.  Does he prefer FS now?

There was no respect for Dake. There's a reason why he's won it at three different weights. When the going gets tough, Taylor gets pinned.

Looks like the cradle is Taylor's kryptonite.

Taylor had him in a single leg and couldn't convert, didn't push him out.  He stopped and stood there.  Dake made a gutsy move to trip Taylor and pinned him with it.  Pretty good stuff really. 

I was impressed by both and hope both continue.  Taylor is a raw talent that hopefully will get better.  However, he did seem uncomfortable with FS rules.

Dake hit him with the old "3 in a row." Hang out with a single that long and you're just begging for it.

Taylor did not seem to attack at all. I think he respected Dake too much on the mat and gave up all hope of trying to score on him. Dake, being more mature, said business as usual.

Oh, I don't know.  Taylor hit that single pretty good.  He just didn't know what to do with it.  Dake did though!!

Kyle fed off of the lack of respect thrown his way this season. Awesome performance.

It's crazy anybody disrespects what the guy has done on the mat. He's a 3 time NCAA champ and has never redshirted.  The guy is an absolute beast.  I have to wonder if Taylor's greater dominance (extra points) is due to being in a weaker weight class or something after that dismantling at OTT. Freestyle is a different animal though, but man, what a kicking.
