Jordan Oliver, a two-time NCAA champion and three-time finalist at Oklahoma State, will be one of eight competitors in FloWrestling’s 150-pound tournament Dec. 18.
Oliver along with Anthony Ashnault, a 2019 NCAA champion from Rutgers, and former Edinboro and Iowa standout Pat Lugo were announced as the first three competitors for the tournament Saturday during FloWrestling’s ‘Who’s Number One’ event.
It will be Oliver’s first competition since he lost 4-1 to Jason Nolf, a three-time NCAA champion and four-time finalist from Penn State, in a freestyle match at the Rumble on the Rooftop event June 28 in Chicago.
The tournament winner will earn $25,000, the runner-up will take $15,000 and third and fourth place will take home $10,000 and $5,000, respectively. All wrestlers will earn $1,000.
The bracket and seeding has yet to be released.
