Reigning U.S. Olympic gold medalist Jordan Burroughs remains on the amateur wrestling scene.
Burroughs, who hasn’t lost in years, seemed to be on course for a future in MMA like several other elite wrestlers.
Instead, the ex-Nebraska NCAA national put any thought of that to rest on Twitter after watching Bellator 106 Saturday night.
“MMA is brutal,” he wrote. “Great sport, but not for me. I will never step foot in the Octagon.”
The 25-year-old is a two-time World Champion and one-time Pan American champion. Burroughs is 65-0 on the senior wrestling circuit.
MMA is brutal. Great sport, but not for me. I will never step foot in the Octagon.
