Simmons is good on top, but he specializes in brutalizing smaller guys. That doesnt fit McD.
He pinned 4x world medalist Radoslav Velikov, who often wrestles up at 60 kg. Also rolled around Hazewinkel pretty good. I'm not saying Simmons would win a folkstyle match, but in freestyle I doubt that McD has the par terre experience to survive. If I remember correctly McD made a jr. world team in freestyle, which is a great accomplishment, but even then he struggled with giving up exposure points.
At any rate, this is what I thought of instantly for this match up, with possibly the same outcome for McD in freestyle. Simmons seems pretty f'n nasty in this style. As for folk, I honestly think it's a tossup.
McDonough in folk for sure; he is just to solid in all positions; even if Simmons were to ride out McD. McD would score from his feet. Simmons in free he just has too much experience at this point.
It was obe.
About a month before Obe wound up making the world team. With the goofy scoring system in place for that match Simmons basically won the dual for the Big 10 by himself.
