Jarrett Stod vs. Ian Butler
Jarrett Stod is a Social Media superstar with over 7 Million Tik Tok Followers, 333k Youtube Subscribers, and 102k Instagram followers AKA this is a pretty big deal. All the rage lately in combat sports has been social media influencers crossing over into combat sports, such as boxing, so we thought why not wrestling? Although Jarrett is a social media influencer with a massive audience, that doesn’t mean he can’t scrap. Just like the Paul brothers, Jarrett wrestled in high school in a wrestling heavy state and was a multiple time state qualifier. Jarrett is originally from the state of Iowa and now resides in Los Angeles, California where he has a full time career in social media. Jarrett attended Street League 1 back in August and was recognized by members of the audience and that caught our attention. We knew we had to at least reach out and see if he had wrestled before. Once we confirmed that he did and that he was pretty dang good at it we asked if he was down to wrestle on the next card and Jarrett said he was in.
Ian Butler reached out to us to wrestle on the first Street League Card but he was a little too late to be added so we knew we had to make it right this time around. Jarrett isn’t the only one with a social media following, Ian has amassassed over 21k Instagram followers while fighting for the prestigious Bellator organization. Ian has a busy month in the month of October as he will be competing in Submission Underground on UFC Fight Pass vs. UFC Veteran Carlos Condit on October 10th and he will be coaching at Pre-Season Nationals in Des Moines, Iowa the same weekend as StaleMates Street League 2. Long before Ian started his own wrestling club, Silverback Wrestling Club, he wrestled for Lindenwood University in Saint Charles, Missouri.
