Last weekend’s Beat The Streets event featured some of the U.S. best wrestlers on the international circuit against top athletes from Russia, the number-one ranked team. After winning his second NCAA title for the University of Nebraska, Jordan Burroughs is now training for the 2012 Olympics.

At the event, he used his superior double leg to defeat Aniuar Geduev, who is a top-three wrestler in Russia and holds a victory over World Champion Makhach Murtazaliev.

BloodyElbow’s KJ Gould seems to think that Daniel Cormier will be able to eventually recruit Burroughs to join AKA.
