Thread: Dake vs Taylor at 165

    I think Taylor would beat Dake. I base my decision off complete and total bias towards Taylor. But if i need to justify my decision, I would say because of Taylor's relentless scoring attack on the feet. He transitions from one shot to another smoother than anyone out there right now and eventually I think he would get the TD. I think both can ride equally well and both avoid getting turned equally well. So when I visualize the match, I see a win by takedown for Taylor.

    You'd better hope that Dake doesn't read this post.

    I just can't see Dake grinding out a 3-0, 3-1 match against Taylor like he does against the other top guys he has faced. I think Taylor takes Dake down at least 3 times, Dake gets one td off a reshot and gets 3 escapes. Throw a reversal in for Taylor once Dake takes him down and then maybe a rt point (thinking that he keeps Dake down for 15-20 seconds after each td and the reversal) and you have a 11-6 win for Taylor.

    P1: Td Taylor, e1 Dake. Taylor only gets one b/c Dake is fresh and tough with his td defense. 2-1 Taylor.

    P2: Taylor's choice. He takes neutral to avoid falling into Dake's strength, and he knows he can score from here. Td Taylor, followed by e1 Dake. Taylor gets another td, but also another e1 for Dake. Period ends with taylor in on another leg but Dake staves it off. 6-3 Taylor

    P3: Dake chooses neutral b/c he needs the points. Gets his td on a reshot but Taylor funks and gets a reversal. (Dake is not going to be able to put his punishing ride on this kid). Dake gets his escape but he is visibly gassed (as he has known to be). Taylor, who is not known to gas gets another td, and the rt point for the ride-out to end the match. 11-6 Taylor.

    i think taylor takes him down rather easily. a lot of lesser guys have had success shooting in on dake's legs, but more often than not, unable to finish. taylor finishes very well once he gets in on that leg and is also dominant on top. dake's best chances would be to avoid takedowns in the first period and hope to ride him out when he's on top.

    still not sure who wins, but if i had to pick, i'd go w/ taylor.

    I ain't scared of Dake. I was blastin' doubles and runnin' half nelsons before that chump was even born. Heck, I even won 2 or 3 local tournaments when St. Paris Graham didn't show up. And oddly enough, it will be St. Paris Graham that stops Dake from his 4th title if he moves to 165.

    Taylor, all day. Just too good on his feet.

    And I say that as a huge Dake fan.

    AH is 94-8 ( 1 Inj Def) in college -no RS , -I've watched him grow from a 130 lb freshman to a full grown 165 and I would NEVER bet against him. Although the field is so tough to get to a fresh Burroughs .
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    This is no disrespect to Andrew. He's extremely good, but I think he would lose to DT at 165 and it might not be that close either.
