Five-time World and Olympic champion Jordan Burroughs will make his return to the mat on June 18th against two-time NCAA champion and four-time finalist Isaiah Martinez live on FloWrestling.

The two have not met since their intense three-match series at 2019 Final X. Jordan Burroughs won matches one and three of the series, earning his ninth-straight World/Olympic team spot. Martinez did take match two from Burroughs, however. Burroughs would go on to win bronze at the World Championships in Nur-Sultan.

Watch Isaiah Martinez take out Jordan Burroughs at 2019 Final X below.

The two also met in 2018 Final X with Burroughs taking it two matches to none, giving Burroughs a 4-1 all-time advantage in the series. 

Their highly anticipated rematch didn’t occur when Isaiah Martinez was forced to withdraw from the Olympic Trials due to injury. 

There's a deep respect between these two. Now it's time to run it back. This time at 79 kg. With both wrestlers recently announcing their moves in weight for the foreseeable future, this will be the first time the two have met at a weight other than 74 kg.
