Did Dake put the cart before the horse?

Recommended Posts

the 3pt score would have won it, but burroughs would have wrestled the last 20-30 seconds much differently if he was behind.

 

True, but so might have Dake. If he is winning the match instead of deadlocked, perhaps he puts on his track shoes and tries to keep more distance. It's one of those situations that is open to speculation and you can't be wrong regardless of the side you take.

WOW that was so much closer than the first match. Dake is amazing. Burroughs snatched the win from the jaws of defeat to keep his unbeaten international streak going.

 

Match was so good.

 

Dake would of had to win match 2&3 to officially beat him.

 

False. They're each official matches. If Burroughs would have gone to a third match, his win streak would have ended with it.

the fact is they both knew the rules and wrestled under them. the hypothetical dake won under the real fila rules is irrelevant.

Dake takes this spot by 2016, he's just going to keep coming.

 

 

Only if JB retires.

 

Or gets retired. I guess we'll see. He's definitely the top dog right now, but He hasn't before had competition like Dake and Taylor coming into their prime. 2016 is a long ways off, staying on top isn't easy. It'll be fun to watch regardless.

Huh? The guy is a world and olympic champ. Not only has he had competition like Dake (and Taylor????), he's beaten better than both.

How does DT keep getting included in the big boy talk? What has he done at this level to suggest he's ever going to beat either Dake or JB?

Why would you start running your mouth against an Olympic champ when you are a young pup like that?

 

I think its safe to say, Dake just isn't the most diplomatic of interviewees. He's proven this several times over the years. Could be maturity issues, could be his personality.

Tsargush, Gourdazi and Aliyev aren't better than Dake or Taylor?
