Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Drew Gulak (Second Round Match)
Sabre walked into the CWC as one of the favorites to win the entire tournament, and showed exactly why in his First Round battle with Tyson Dux. The technical wizard twisted the veteran Canadian grappler into a pretzel, wrenching simultaneously on both of his opponent’s arms and forcing Dux to verbally submit in a painful-looking omoplata/armbar combination.
Gulak’s brand of mat wrestling may not be as graceful as Sabre’s, but there’s no doubt that it gets the job done. The minimalist mutilator pummeled Harv Sihra into the canvas, then bent the “Bollywood Don” backwards with reckless abandon, making him tap out to a Dragon Sleeper and setting up a showdown with Sabre Jr.
Can Sabre Jr. live up to expectations and continue on in the Cruiserweight Classic, or will Drew Gulak show that his brand of submission wrestling is superior?
