Episode 18 of The MatBoss Podcast with Chad Dennis features one of the greats in the sport of wrestling, Alan Fried. A legend in Ohio, Fried is the first, and only, wrestler in U.S. history to win four Junior National freestyle titles. A three-time finalist at Oklahoma State, Fried talks about his days growing up in Ohio, coaching at the middle school level, why he chose Oklahoma State and why he chose to stay there after the team was put on probation and his battles with Tom Brands and the history around those bouts.
Note: This interview is unedited for language and carries the explicit tag.
