Beat the Streets Rumble on the Rails stops at Grand Central Terminal in New York City Wednesday, May 15, 2013. Iran and Russia traveled across seas to compete with the United States freestyle wrestling team at the Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal. The competition will be held adjacent to the annual Beat the Streets Awards Gala, following wrestling at the Bryant Park Grill. Obe Blanc earned the honors of being invited to wrestle at the event for the United States.
Anyone who questioned if Holly Holm's heart was in this fight was quickly answered. In her Swan Song fight Holm did what she's done so many times before: take her opponent apart. She left "Merciless" Mary McGee standing flat footed and confused. McGee appeared to switch up her game plan on the fly more than once, at times rushing Holms in an attempt to cut off the ring, other times standing still and waiting to counter punch - neither worked.
On this edition of the Low Blow, Justin and Jorge welcome 17-year old boxer Matthew Griego to talk about his success in the sweet science at such a young age.
