Moments off the Mat: #55 Alex Dieringer, Kyle Cructhmer, and Nick Piccininni

Taylor Miller talks with 3X NCAA champion Alex Dieringer and multiple-time NCAA All-Americans Kyle Crutchmer and Nick Piccininni.

Since graduating, Dieringer has become a familiar name on the Senior men’s freestyle circuit domestically and internationally as a four-time National Team member and 2019 Final X runner-up. Internationally, Dieringer has medaled in every Senior-level event he has entered.

Crutchmer continued to wrestle for a little while after his time at Oklahoma State but went on to pursue an MMA career. He trains with Daniel Cormier at AKA in California and has a 6-0 MMA record, with his two most recent wins coming in Bellator fights.

Piccininni graduated from Oklahoma State earlier this month and is diving right into a mixed martial arts career, joining Crutchmer and several other Cowboys at AKA.
