this is probably the only match you will see in d1 when a wrestler does not take ONE SHOT. in rediculous. and stalling? SMH
This match features an enlightening contrast in strategies; the controlled slow down of JP O'Connor versus the explosiveness of Jordan Burroughs. Burroughs has untrammelled explosive shots, startling speed accompanied by brutal power. OConnor, reminiscent of Lee Kemps style but not Kemps world class physical ability, has close matches that he most often comes out winning through controlling the pace and shots of his opponents. That strategy, evidenced by his tie-ups; control of distance; and his tough riding techniques, most often tallies wins for OConnor. But then comes a guy like Burroughs and as you can see from the video, Burroughs speed rips right through your reaction time, once you recognize the threat it may be too late to react adequately. As a consequence, while you may defend many of his shots in a match, you are unlikely to anticipate every shot and that is Burroughss strategy, to use his speed to take you while are unprepared. If Burroughs masters chain wrestling we may get an Olympic medal from him. OConnor, while in fine condition, needs more strength and a bigger gas tank to grind a guy like Burroughs. If OConnor improves his conditioning he can make many more moves that he can then use to slow down the faster opponents of this very competitive weight class. If you cant move faster than your opponent, then slow him down through the above listed techniques, but also make more moves than your opponent to use superior conditioning to slow him down, making you faster in the later part of your match than your normally faster opponent. Also, if OConnor takes a lower stance with better level changing then he upsets the set point of the faster wrestler. I enjoy watching both these wrestlers as they showcase the virtues and the flaws of their respective strategies.
