ABOUT STEVE MOCCO:
Steve Mocco (born December 28, 1981) is an American amateur wrestler and mixed martial artist originally from North Bergen, New Jersey. Starting his collegiate wrestling career at the University of Iowa, Mocco was the 285-pound NCAA Division I runner-up in 2002 and champion in 2003. After taking an Olympic redshirt year, Mocco transferred to Oklahoma State University to wrestle for coach John Smith. In his first year at OSU, Mocco won the 285 title in 2005 without losing a match.
In high school, Mocco was one of the most dominant heavyweights in recent history. He won four NJ prep state titles and four prep national titles, two of which were at wrestling powerhouse Blair Academy in Blairstown Township, New Jersey. He also won three Junior National titles in wrestling and one in judo. Mocco also won two Beast of the East championships. Mocco swept the “Big Four” of national high school wrestling awards as he was named the 2001 ASICS Tiger High School Wrestler of the year, the 2001 Junior Hodge Trophy winner, NHSCA National High School Wrestler of the Year, and was awarded the Dave Schultz High School Excellence Award. He was one of the most sought-after recruits in history and signed on to wrestle for coach Jim Zalesky and the Iowa Hawkeyes.
After announcing that he would transfer to Oklahoma State, Mocco became an instant figure of derision in Iowa. He won the 2005 NCAA title in overtime with a foot sweep has been interpreted by his critics as a sign of his strength, speed and abilities. He is known for his “foot sweep” maneuver.
Mocco is undefeated in MMA and he fights for ATT.
