While Askren is a highly accomplished wrestler in his own right as a two-time NCAA champion and 2008 Olympian, he was facing a daunting task going up against Burroughs in this freestyle matchup.

From the start of the match, Burroughs immediately put Askren on the defense after putting the welterweight contender down with a pair of his signature blast double leg takedowns.

Burroughs is currently training and preparing for the upcoming World Championships in wrestling where he will attempt to win his fifth gold medal in September ahead of the 2020 Olympic games.
