The most insane upset in wrestling history since Gable lost to Owings. We just witnessed history…

@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.
coachromero49 Před 2 dny
Stop it Black hair! 125 pound division is the weakest of them all! You would know this if you stepped on the mat in the NCAAs!
coachromero49 Před 2 dny
Idiocracy! 1st of all the 125lb weight class is not equal to the upper classes! How many 125lb men do you know at 21 years old -2. The average man is in the 140-175 pound range at that age.
Hawkeye Před 10 dny
As a Hawkeye through and through I'm gutted to see Lee's run come to an end! But all credit to Ramos what a win man now go get the chip 🏆 👏

3:23 Ramos defers. Ref indicates green chooses too.
Jakob Folmar
Jakob Folmar Před 6 dny
@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.
Jakob Folmar
Jakob Folmar Před 6 dny
@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 Před 6 dny
@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?
Rusty Gray
Rusty Gray Před 9 dny
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.
Rusty Gray
Rusty Gray Před 4 dny
@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 Před 4 dny
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?
PJP Před 5 dny
@W S no problem, and yea.. theres a lot of people who talk without knowing what they're talking about
MikesAvenger Před 9 dny
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.

@DamiensTheRegicide Missed it. Watched again and saw what you said.

​@Rich B the commentators were wrong. Lee chose Top in the 2nd.
Rich B
Rich B Před 8 dny
@Jakob Folmar I watched the match again and clearly saw that Ramos signaled neutral in the 3rd. What through ESPN and the two of us off was that we didn't see a clear signal from Lee in the 2nd.

Jakob Folmar Před 9 dny
@Rich B oh man so did I at first. I though this kids coaches must be idiots lol. No one picks down with Lee. It's a death sentence.

Jmichael Isbell
Jmichael Isbell Před 6 dny
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?
Jason Webb
Jason Webb Před 9 dny
Amazing. Put him on his back twice, and the way he got that escape and came back aggressive and went for it was amazing. Seemed to catch Lee off guard.

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 Před 9 dny
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.
Joe Small
Joe Small Před 9 dny
That move to catch Lee was amazing. I watched it over and over.
The ND Troll Sniper
​​​@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 Před 9 dny
@W S I fully believe that Ramos knew he was going to catch Spencer’s left arm and pin him to his back
Ricepower30YT Před 9 dny
@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 Před 9 dny
@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 Před 9 dny
@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

RSD Před 9 dny
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.
V Před 9 dny
So happy for Ramos but totally devastated for Lee
Colin Berry
Colin Berry Před 5 dny
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!
Phil Black
Phil Black Před 8 dny
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!!

Ramos showed in January he might have the edge in neutral. Even though he still lost despite being up 8-1 in the first that's information to take with you and a confidence boost.

Yeah he definitely showed his intention is to win! Spencer has lost more than once, that can really empower the competition!

Great match, tough to see Spencer get pinned, hats off to Ramos, he came to battle like in the Dual. Both of them fought and fought for sure, great match.

Straight up cried after this match really sad to see Spencer's carrer almost be over he did really good though
Joshua Beane
Joshua Beane Před 9 dny
That was one of the sickest moves I've ever seen. To execute it at that moment against arguably the best 125lber to ever do it is just simply clutch. Not taking anything away from Ramos but Lee looked anything other than dominant the entire match!
Vaughn Jones
Vaughn Jones Před 9 dny
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.
Michael North
Michael North Před 9 dny
@Aaron Sarquist lee’s ego got to him, Lee had a chip on his shoulder, hence why Lee body locked Ramos while still underneath him in a bad position..
Aaron Sarquist
Aaron Sarquist Před 9 dny
Gotta disagree. Lee gave Ramos props at the handshake in the first match on the throw. And Lee definitely respected the hell out of Ramos' upper body weapons. Looked more to me like Lee just got caught in a wild position and paid the price. Hats off to Ramos for being game til the very end. Signed, a Spencer Lee Fan boy lol

@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.

fjbxrplover2019 Před 9 dny
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.

@Zayne S It is over already. Technically, not mathematically over, but it is over nonetheless. Lee finishing 3rd or 6th makes no difference. Iowa has no chance of catching PSU. 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.

Michael North

I always had this impression that the guys Lee was beating were some how “letting” him win.. I had thought last night that Lee might lose in the semis or finals, just going off of the quarterfinals win, he was momentarily on his back and then in the interview, Lee seemed SHOOK and very nerve rattled and was giving quick answers and not happy looking or sounding. Brutal way to lose. The Iowa curse, like Dan gable, and also Lee losing his final match in high school. Sucks to suck.. but most just dream of getting on the podium, let alone winning THREE NCAA TITLES. So we can’t feel too sorry for mr Lee. Go PSU!

I had Ramos as a dark horse going into the tournament just based off the fact that he put Spencer on his back earlier in the year and that he is coming down from 133 so Spencer can’t bully him like he can the other people…Not to mention Spencer seems to run out of steam every time he has to wrestle past two rounds

You had a weird feeling with this match. Especially with that call and the fact that Lee was looking to kill time in that neutral position

Spencer shouldn't feel ashamed tho. Still goes down as one of the best wrestlers in NCAA history.

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.

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

Usually the thumb nail gives away the match, but in this case, I didn't believe it. For me, it was literally "unbelievable".

This moment probably just motivated Spencer Lee to become the greatest Olympic wrestler ever.

@Akshay Gulabrao Also, freestyle rules take away a lot of his top game and tilt. He is a dominant wrestler on top and he is now average in neutral and on bottom. More US wrestlers will be able to challenge him in freestyle that can't sniff his jock in folk, so making the US team at this point is not a given with his body beat up. The Iowa style is not conducive to staying healthy for a full 4 or 5 years in college.

Let's not get overly dramatic here. He's real good at exposing the back on takedowns which is to his advantage but he won't have time to work his tilts in freestyle. And you can't wait there for the action to come to you because they're real quick to call inactivity in freestyle. And he hasn't wrestled freestyle internationally in years. Yeah, he's great and I think he has a gold in him but there's obviously a lot of unknowns and a lot of work to do here, especially when you have to get through a 4x wc level medalist like Gilman to even get to the show.

Gable lost to Larry Owings who was a sophomore at a now University of Washington defunct program after being undefeated in high school and college Went ballistic in freestyle and beat Owings 7-1 in the Olympic trials and that was the only point he gave up in the 17 US Matches and then went Unscored upon in 6 Olympic matches. Sometimes it’s these things that refocus people. Larry Owings never won again in the next two years

That’s savage. I think this is the most neutral someone’s had spencer lee and I think that pin was amazing. Congrats to Ramos and great work from spencer lee; as always. As disappointing as it may seem I hope spencer can overcome that and come back and destroy the competition wherever he decides to compete.

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.
