On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with the captain of the 2011 Michigan State University wrestling team and current undefeated catch wrestler, Curran Jacobs.
We spoke with him by phone Thursday.
After recently graduating from Michigan State University with a master's degree in acting, Curran Jacobs will be returning to the mat to compete in several events.
First up will be an eight-man catch wrestling tournament on July 14 organized by the Snake Pit U.S.A. at the Primal Gym in Hamilton, New Jersey. There he hopes to face rival Josh Barnett in the finals.
"Anyone in the catch wrestling world right now, and it's a small world, but anyone familiar with catch wrestling and the competition nowadays knows that there's only one guy that Josh Barnett should be wrestling right now, and that's me," he said.
Next up is the 2018 Frank Gotch World Catch Wrestling Tournament, organized by the Catch Wrestling Alliance, on August 4 at the Westside Training Center in Los Angeles. He won last year's tournament, defeating veteran wrestler and MMA fighter Travis Wiuff in the finals by submission.
Also on his agenda is competing in the West Coast Trials for the 2019 ADCC Worlds in grappling. The West Coast Trials will take place in 2019 at a date and place to be announced.
We discussed his competing at all these events, why he believes that he is "a much better wrestler" than Josh Barnett, his working on training in submissions, why catch wrestlers should compete at ADCC events, and much more.
