Olympic Wrestling Champion Walks Out to Lecrae & Andy Mineo Song at Madison Square Garden

U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist and Multi-time world Champion wrestler Jordan Burroughs was among many world caliber athletes who competed on May 6th. It happened in front of a sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden for the annual “Beat the Streets” event. 


Aside from his Olympic level athletic ability, Burroughs is a devoted Christian and often uses his platform as a place to showcase his faith. As Burroughs entered the ring “Coming in Hot” by Andy Mineo & Lecrae blared unashamed over the crowds’ cheers.

In a performance that matched the walkout song, Burroughs came out ‘just like a fajita’ against former Olympic Wrestler and current undefeated UFC contender Ben Askren. He won the match a stunning 11-0.

However, Burroughs was not the only wrestler to come out to a song by Christian artists.

World Champion and Olympic bronze medalist J’Den Cox walked out to “Signed Up to Die” by Thi’sl. Cox is an Olympic Bronze Medalist, World Champion, a three-time NCAA wrestling champion for the Missouri Tigers. Similarly, Cox soundly defeated his opponent with a score of 13 -0.

‘Beat the Streets’ is an event hosted in New York City featuring the best freestyle wrestlers in the world. The purpose is to develop the human and athletic potential of urban youth and to strengthen the wrestling culture within New York City.
