USA Wrestling and FloWrestling have announced the order of the bouts for Final X in Lincoln, NE, which will be held at the Bob Devaney Center on the campus of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln on Saturday, June 9, starting at 6 PM CT.

WATCH FINAL X LINCOLN LIVE

The event will determine the 2018 U.S. Senior world teams in men’s and women’s freestyle wrestling, featuring the nation’s top two athletes in the seven weight classes on the card. It will be a best-of-three series in each weight class, with the winner earning a spot on Team USA at the 2018 World Championships in Budapest, Hungary, on October 20-28.

Tickets remain available. Fans should go to the tickets tab on the official Final X website at www.FinalX.tv.

The final match on the card will feature a local hero, 2012 Olympic champion and four-time world champion Jordan Burroughs of the Sunkist Kids, who will battle two-time NCAA champion and four-time NCAA finalist Isaiah Martinez of the Titan Mercury WC at 74kg in men’s freestyle. Burroughs won two NCAA titles for Nebraska and is an assistant coach with the Huskers, while Martinez was a star at the University of Illinois.

Fans will not want to be late since the first match on the card features another great showdown. Two-time world medalist James Green of the Sunkist Kids will battle veteran star Jason Chamberlain of the Titan Mercury WC at 70kg in men’s freestyle in the opening bout. Green was a four-time All-American for the Huskers, while Chamberlain was a two-time All-American at Boise State.

Bout two features two-time world silver medalist Alli Ragan of the Sunkist Kids, who takes on 2014 U.S. world team member Jenna Burkert of the U.S. Army WCAP at 59kg in women’s freestyle. Ragan won two WCWA college national titles for King University.

The third matchup includes 2016 Olympic champion and two-time world champion Kyle Snyder of the Titan Mercury WC, who battles 2015 NCAA champion Kyven Gadson of the Sunkist Kids at 97kg in men’s freestyle. Snyder won three NCAA titles and was a four-time finalist for Ohio State. Gadson, a three-time All-American for Iowa State, beat Snyder in the 2015 NCAA finals. Snyder beat Gadson in the 2017 World Team Trials.

Bout four is headlined by 2017 world bronze medalist Becka Leathers of the Titan Mercury WC, who takes on 2014 University world bronze medalist Jacarra Winchester of the Titan Mercury WC at 55kg in women’s freestyle. Both are past WCWA college champions, Leathers at Oklahoma City and Winchester at Missouri Valley.

Fifth in the bout order is a highly anticipated showdown between local hero and 2017 world silver medalist Thomas Gilman of the Titan Mercury WC against 2017 Junior world champion Daton Fix of the Titan Mercury WC at 57kg in men’s freestyle. Gilman won four Nebraska state high school titles for Omaha Skutt Catholic High School and went on to be a three-time All-American for Iowa. Fix is coming off a redshirt year as a freshman at Oklahoma State.

The sixth bout includes 2017 world team member Tamyra Stock of the Titan Mercury WC against seven-time U.S. Open All-American Randyll Beltz of U.S. Army WCAP. Stock, a two-time WCWA national champion for Wayland Baptist, was a 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials champion. Beltz was a WCWA All-American at Missouri Valley.

As a best-of-three series, this order of bouts will be the same for the first round and the second round of competition. If any weight classes are forced to a deciding third match in their series, the bouts in round three will stay in order, with a minimum waiting time of 30 minutes from the end of bout two.

FloWrestling will provide exclusive live and on-demand coverage of the three-event Final X series. Watch the events across all screens by downloading the FloSports app on iOS, Roku, or Apple TV 4, as well as on desktop or mobile web via FloWrestling.com

The other two Final X competitions are Final X in State College on June 16, and Final X at Lehigh on June 23. Tickets for all three Final X events can be purchased at www.FinalX.tv
