Can’t really go by freestyle past results and compare to folkstyle. Totally different beast when it comes to a lot of these guys. As far as Vito vs Fix and Vito vs RBY in the past in freestyle… Vito beat Fix the last time they wrestled in Freestyle at the olympic trial semifinals 6-5. He was up 6-0 with 1:50 seconds left… gave up 5 “sumo” pts. The time that the two wrestled before that was crazy in freestyle. Vito came out like an animal. Hit him with a beautiful 5 point throw . Then he took him down again and found himself up 7-0 about 45 seconds into the match. Then…he got teched. The difference between that match and the most recent match at the trials was his gas tank and maturity as a wrestler. The last time Vito wrestled RBY he beat him in the U23 World team trials finals back on 2018. He tech falled him 15-4 then 10-0. That was aged ago, both wrestlers are much different now and RBY is much more talented at folkstyle then freestyle.
If Spencer is 100% healthy, I would go 133 if I were Vito. Then maynr the following year (his sr year) go back down to 125. I Like his odds beating RBY and Fix more than I do beating a healthy Spencer. I will say this, at that one US Open, he did get teched by Spencer, but he did have two beautiful takedowns against him which nobody else that tourney was even remotely close to. If Spencer is not
though, I would take Vito all day. If Vito wrestles like he did in the EIWA finals he is near unstoppable. In all fairness to Vito, that semifinal match at NCAAs against Glory was some big time bullshit. I mean like he said in the post match interview..”i must not understand wrestling, i have the bottom leg hooked, I have a cross face going, I have his arms bundled up, and just no reversal.”. Instead of being 10-3 Vito, it became 7-4 Glory. That same official destroyed quite a number of matches. Point being…i don’t think Glory ever beats Vito again. Think that one stung and don’t see him falling to him ever again. If he would have one we could have seen a Vito/Suriano final but then again if my aunt had balls she would be my uncle so what can ya do!
