Senior Dom Bradley
Sept. 26, 2012
WASHINGTON D.C. - The heavyweight, 285 pound weight class match at the 2012 All Star Classic will feature Dom Bradley of Missouri v. Mike McMullan of Northwestern, in a match pitting the previous third place finishers at the 2011 and 2012 NCAA Wrestling Championships.
In 2010-11, Bradley became Missouri's first Big 12 Heavyweight champion and earned All-American honors at the NCAA Championships with a third place finish. Bradley finished his junior season with a 30-4 overall record, which is 8th best winning percentage in Missouri wrestling history.
Bradley, a former Junior World Champion, elected to take an Olympic redshirt during the 2011-2012 season. He will enter his senior season with a career record of 66-12.
McMullan had a strong 2011-12 season capped off with a third place finish at the NCAA Championships earning himself All-American honors as a freshman. McMullan finished the season with a 29-11 overall record which was second best on the Wildcats team. McMullan's third place finish was Northwestern's highest placement for a freshman since Jake Herbert finished third in 2005. McMullan also earned the Jake Herbert Freshman of the Year trophy.
This match-up, never before seen at the college level, is sure to bring excitement for spectators as both wrestlers are explosive competitors who like to put points up on the board.
"We have two top notch wrestlers at the heavyweight division that will put on a great show for wrestling fans. I am certain that this match-up will help make the All Star Classic a better event for wrestling fans," said NWCA Executive Director Mike Moyer.
With this match set, fans can now look forward to future acceptances at the eight other weight classes featured in the event.
The All-Star Classic will occur on November 3, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. in Bender Arena on the campus of American University in Washington D.C.
