[2017-03-05-RevPro] Matt Riddle vs Timothy Thatcher

Recommended Posts

I like both guys a lot. Riddle this year seems to be becoming more formula or spotty at times. We get some fun mat work early. The mat work leads to submission attempts. Thatcher after the foot. Riddle gets out only to eat a big gut wrench. Thatcher moves to the arm. Big knee from Riddle sets up Riddle's offense. Thatcher back on the ankle. Riddle counters and in a great revenge spot gets the ankle. Riddle softening up the leg. Both men have leg locks apllied. Thatcher with a knee strike, and sells it a bit. Thatcher counter's a fisherman buster into a rear naked choke. That Riddle counters into the bromission for the win. 3 1/2*

Thatcher & Riddle open the match with some matwork, which is great as usual. They fight for control and there’s a sense of struggle to every move & hold they (attempt to) put each other in. They tease some stories -- Thatcher working the ankle, Riddle working the leg -- and bust out some suplexes & strikes when necessary to soften each other up. Everything is real tight and snug. Riddle’s limbwork prevails, and Thatcher taps to the heel. Very good match. The grappling is fantastic & doesn't overstay its welcome. Lacking that extra 'oomph' to push it to four-stars.
