    Past Scoring Breakdown & Keys To Victory For Gilman vs Arujau

    Jun 1, 2022

    Thomas Gilman vs Vito Arujau is blossoming into one of my favorite senior-level domestic rivalries in the sport. Back in 2017 at a bar in Waverly, Iowa, Gilman said talked about how a "rivalry" that is one-sided isn't a rivalry at all. With Gilman owning the series 3-0, this would imply that it isn't much of a rivalry. While I somewhat agree with Gilman, I still can't wait to see these two go to war at Final X. Gilman will once again be a heavy odds-on favorite to win, but I'm not counting Vito out.
