@G Wex lol? Its most certainly not up for debate. If you go off of the numbers karelin is hands down the greatest of all time. 899 wins and 2 losses? went 13 yrs without suffering a loss? went 7 yrs without even being scored on? 3 str8 gold medals in that 13 yr span aswell as 9 world titles and 12 euro titles... no one has the hardware that man has, no one has the record that man has, nor the lengthy credentials....

@Daniel Freer great wrestler. But not the best. It’s always up for debate. I’m not arguing who is best. Just giving someone an explanation.

@Butter lol I read that wrong, thought you were asking if he lost to the same guy from high school. Yeah he won three state titles and lost his senior year just like this time. The only person I though could have even competed with him was fix or suriano but after watching that killer performance by Glory at finals maybe he would of beat him. He looked slick as shit.

@Butter Lee is the same kid but desantos isn't who he lost to at finals. I don't like making excuses for anyone but Lee was nursing an injury when he lost to desantos in high school. He's been wearing that huge leg brace ever since.
Butter 11 dias atrás
@Jakob Folmar since your from PA as I am. Didn't he lose the same way in high school? 3 time state champ and then Desanto beat him in his last match. This is the same kid right?

Hours before this match, Ramos had an interview and said he had a plan. You can really see him execute it here. 1) He chooses neutral in 3rd instead of bottom (Lee chose top in 2nd) because Lee's tilt is so deadly 2) He uses his Greco-Roman experience to full advantage. In their duel meet match earlier this year, Ramos dominated on his feet, but Lee pinned him as soon as he got on top. 3) He uses an excellent standing Granby roll twice to get escapes into immediate counter-attacks. 4) He is constantly pushing into Lee, then changing direction to throw him off balance. Even in the cases where this didn't score him points, it is obviously effective, often sending Lee onto his butt or into a desperate scramble. I would have loved to watch Lee make history tomorrow night. He's such an exciting wrestler to watch, and such a darn nice guy, that you can't help but cheer for him. I wish he had gotten the happy ending he seemed destined for. But on the other hand, this feels like the first chapter in a story just as exciting.

@Scott Meredith Lee's conditioning has always been one of his weaknesses. The challenge helped Lee more than Ramos.

@Scott Meredith That has been a big discussion recently, given that this is apparently a year that they are planning to revisit some of the rules. A lot of people on FLO for example have been saying that a 5 minute breather is more disruptive than an incorrect call, and I tend to agree. When I was a kid, I took a lot of pride in my conditioning because I put in that work. I would have been very upset if my opponent was clearly tired and got a 10 minute break while they decided if I had scored 2 near fall points or 3.
Scott Meredith
Scott Meredith 9 dias atrás
I can't help but keep watching this, and I have come to the conclusion that this and other matches have been influenced by the coach challenges. Your insight was excellent. Given that Lee was up 2 points with riding time, was it worth giving Ramos that breather? Isn't part of wrestling the fatigue factor?

@W S no problem, and yea.. theres a lot of people who talk without knowing what they're talking about

What a weapon on his feet. He knew to stay off bottom to start the 3rd. Take that chance with a neutral start. Smarts and confidence there. A great career for Lee.

Exactly and now, with Lee, we get to see HOW great he is-and will be, if he--as he, rises to the occasion. Gable went into a funk, but came out of it. One famous boxing champ once said "you can't see the great until you see how they handle getting beat". Something like that; now will Lee use this to get even better, like Gable did. Maybe?

Actually no, Lee totally gassed and gave up. He was WELL off his back and, I think, got choked out. He only needed to hold out for a few more seconds. His fire and fitness were not in the ball park for this season. If he couldn't crap tilt you in the first 2 minutes...he was a shell the rest of the match.
Lu 14 dias atrás
Congrats to Ramos. I gotta say it’s insanely tough to continue competing at a high level with two torn ACLs even after surgery. You can tell it has affected him. He doesn’t move as good as before and gets gassed quickly. Even if he can’t get his 4th title, he’s still an unbelievable wrestler. Hats off to Matt Ramos tho.

​​​@W S I was always taught that it's just a reverse gator roll, but there may be another name for it. It's pretty common in freestyle, it's a good way to keep your opponent guessing, not knowing which side you'll roll to. You can also bait him by attempting a regular gator roll then switching to the reverse roll halfway through, his body weight will be leaning towards the side you'll roll into because he's defending/resisting the first gator roll attempt towards the other side.
Ricepower30YT 13 dias atrás
@W S I fully believe that Ramos knew he was going to catch Spencer’s left arm and pin him to his back
Ricepower30YT 13 dias atrás
@W S you’ll see Ramos position his right arm across Spencer’s sternum to fully gator roll him. It is quite unorthodox but Spencer had great defense with his own right arm so Ramos chose to roll the opposite way and it just worked for him but you have to commit 110%
W S 13 dias atrás
@Ricepower30YT I've asked this in a few threads and the best I've gotten is a variation on the gator roll. I've never seen rolling away from the trapped arm like that does it have a specific name? In a traditional gator roll he would've rolled towards the trapped left arm or counter clockwise if that makes sense. But yeah I've watched it 12 times, would love a name to find an instructional.
Ricepower30YT 14 dias atrás
@wrestle4life234 yeah I agree. I was shouting, “get off your knees!” now I’m just a bum that love wrestling and know I would lose to a 125lbs champion every day even though I have 100lbs on them haha. Being on your knees is just bad overall but credit to Ramos for putting all his weight and pressure on Spencer to not allow him to get up

Wow you hear coaches of the sport talk about "character building" all the time & god damn does this drama epitomize it. This match and Spencer Lee's journey reminded me of all the highs and lows and humility of this crazy amazing beautiful sport. The older you get the more you understand the greatness of this sport. It's sad for Lee but damn thank you Spencer for helping all of us fall in love with this sport all over again. That was the most dramatic & exciting television I've seen in years. I was shook!

I admire Lee for many reasons, least of which is his ability to tilt up just about anyone in the world, whenever he wants. But I am heart broken he didn’t answer the call for two more matches to let everyone in the world know what kind of man he is, win or lose, that is what wrestling teaches us, courage to do what we do not want to do!!

You can tell Lee was giving Ramos too much respect by 15 seconds in. He usually attempts a hi-c on the right leg by that time. No shot attempts in the first period. Once i saw no takedowns in the first i said Ramos is going to pull this off because Lee gets weaker as matches get longer.

I am a casual fan, but I watched the dual meet between Ramos and Lee during the season. When Ramos was up 8 to 1, I knew he would be a problem for Lee. I felt like Lee was confident on the mat, and too confident specifically going into this match, whether because he not only beat but pinned Ramos previously or not. It will be interesting to watch how he wrestles tomorrow morning for the third place title.

Huge upset! But anyone could possibly see this coming at some point. Lee has been handled many times upperbody this year and this shows how difficult the four x thing is. Only sport you can be ahead by a ton and as long as their is time on the clock, you can lose. Credit to Ramos , he had no fear of Lee on his feet and thanks to Lee for giving us fans so much to applaud over the last couple of years.

There is very little chance of any team catching Iowa for 2nd place either. 1. PSU, 2. Iowa, 3. through 7. is a fight between Cornell, Ohio State, Missouri, Michigan and Nebraska.

@Biden is a traitor strongly disagree. Dan Gable's loss to Owings in 1971 is not what people remember him for. Once the shock goes away and once he transitions to freestyle (if he does) his whole career will be remembered. Can say something similar about David Taylor (4x finalist, losing to Bubba Jenkins and Kyle Dake), Isaiah Martinez, Mark Hall, etc.

As an Iowa I don’t know how so much could go wrong in two nights

Great match. I saw it coming from last time they met. I thought he got stuck last time but they didn't call it

Holy shit that was wild. Lee got caught off guard. Ramos came back fired up after the long decision and Lee was snoozing. Damn

Second time watching this...I watched it after it happened yesterday, and now this morning. Man Ramos is a beast. You gotta give the kid the credit he deserves. Down, with 2 SECONDS on the clock...Amazing, and brutal pin against a legend in Spencer Lee. Ive seen Spencer get pinned before, and i wasnt really as surprised as others i guess. Im from Ohio so lol, so its not like i have a dog in the fight. However ive followed Spencer for a little while now, and was looking forward to him winning 4 NCAA Championships. I didnt see the title coming as easily as everyone made it out to be. All these top 5 guys are monsters, and on a good day will beat the best. As we just seen. Ready to watch Ramos in the finals. Which idk when the wrestling starts today, but yea cant wait. Id love to see Ramos get a NCAA title. Great kid.

Who else noticed that in the first round Ramos threw that late time gator roll that Lee rolled through, but that gave Ramos a feel for it and he hit in the 3rd to pull out the W. Also Lee allowed Ramos to control his head and neck in neutral too much during the match. You saw that Ramos felt really comfortable getting that front headlock position, and that's what he attacked late in the match when it was crunch time.

It was like a front headlock for the roll, into the gator roll finish. Not a regular gator roll

Between Matt Ramos and the men’s basketball team, Purdue was on different sides of a couple of the most historic upsets in college sports history… on the same day

Ramos is tricky. Second time this year he put Lee on his back. It was an upset, but not shocking that Ramos was the one to do it.
