    Default Kyle Dake(2011) vs Jordan Oliver(2013)-Super interesting match up

    Just realized that they have both wrestled 149 and I'm not really sure who would win.. I mean Jordan Oliver has that nonstop action paced style and is always working to score but Kyle Dake was able to slow the pace down against David Taylor every single time they wrestled. Would he be able to do this to JO? Would it be a high scoring affair?

    I would have to say that Dake would have the advantage. Dake has such a controlling pace that i've never seen in any other wrestler (I am young so if you know any that resemble Dake please let me know). He controlled DT so well when he was on top, I knew Dake was always top notch on riding but i couldn't believe how dominant he was. I would see the match against JO look much like his match with DT with it being Slow, controlled by dake, and a dominant performance by yours truly. i think a more interesting match up would be Dake vs Burroughs as seniors in college being that Burroughs was so dominate in the end of his college career but didn't truly become the best in the world until quite a bit of training post-college. Who wins that?

    Dake beats Oliver, Burroughs beats Dake.

    That said, Burroughs' transition from great college wrestler to world champion in only a few months was miraculous to behold. From getting turned all over the place by Kirk White (he would have lost if White didn't get tired) to beating Tsargush and Goudrazi.. amazing.

    Done picking against Dake even in hypothetical match ups.

    With the exception of JB and maybe Howe(depending on how he looks).

    Yeah, same. Very interested to see if Dake has a shot against Burroughs. There's no real reason to pick Dake, except that he's consistently won when people think he won't.

    Speakinng of Howe... who are the best guys he has beaten? He's put a hell of a scare into Burroughs a couple of times, but has he actually won agaainst world class wrestlers before? I know he beat Matt Gentry (Olympic 5th) and lost to Haislan Garcia (world 5th) by clinches at the Hargobind... got tossed around by Geduev... any other significant results against world class competition?

    I don't know how many world class results he has, if any beyond what you've described.

    The fact that he has wrestled JB so tough says a lot, at least for me.

    At 149 Dake beats Oliver in the controlling fashion that Gopherfan outlined. Low amount of points, Too big and strong, too good at counters and riding.

    Especially if he gets to weigh in at around 8 in the morning and then put on 12 or so pounds like he did against Frank. Oliver would look downright diminutive walking out onto the mat with him.
