Burroughs to try MMA

Recommended Posts

Well Idk if JB's best days are behind him or not, but I have to think that his career is on the back stretch. He's been our guy at 74, since 2011, and I believe he will be our guy again this year. So in 2020 that will be ten years wrestling for Team USA. So after ten years I could see him calling it a career, especially if he wins a Gold Medal in Tokyo.

He'll be 32 when the Tokyo Olympics arrive.  It just seems to make sense that this his last Olympic cycle.

If he wants only one fight I'm sure he'll have time for that later.

The fight one time approach would likely equal a takedown and smoother match against a journeyman opponent with a decent record.   He can do it to say he did it, but I can’t say it will likely equal a impressive MMA fight if he had not vested interest in training for the long haul.
