IOWA CITY, Iowa — Four University of Iowa national champions return to the corridor Friday, April 3, to compete at Agon V, a professional wrestling card at the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
They are joined by three-time All-American Phil Keddy in an event billed as “Iowa vs. the World.”
Metcalf, a three-time United States World Team member and the eighth-ranked wrestler in the world at 65 kg, headlines the main event against 18-year-old Aaron Pico, a 2013 Cadet World champion and 2014 Junior World silver medalist.
The co-main event features Ramos and 2008 Olympic champion Henry Cejudo. Ramos was a 2014 World Team member and ranked No. 1 in the U.S. at 57 kg. Cejudo has not wrestled since the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials in Iowa City. He has since redefined his career in the UFC.
McDonough, a two-time NCAA champion and member of the U.S. freestyle team, faces 2008 national champion Angel Escobedo, a volunteer assistant coach at Iowa State.
St. John faces former Northwestern All-American Jason Welch in a rematch of the 2013 NCAA finals, when St. John defeated Welch, 3-2, for the national championship.
Keddy, an All-American at Iowa from 2008-10, faces Deron Winn, a member of the Cyclone Wrestling Club. Both wrestlers will compete for the 86 kg spot on the United States World and Olympic teams.
Tickets to Agon V start at $16. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. (CT). Contact the U.S Cellular Center for ticket information.
