The Hofstra University Pride Wrestling team competes in the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association in the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. Dennis Papadatos, who became the 12th Head Wrestling Coach in Hofstra history on April 4, 2014, is in his 1st season as the head wrestling coach of the Pride in 2014-15.[2] The Pride wrestling team competes on campus in the Mack Sports Complex. Former Pride wrestler Chris Weidman was a 2-time NCAA Division I All-American (6th in 2006 & 3rd in 2007, both at 197 lb) and is now the current UFC Middleweight Champion.

Hofstra's wrestling team was formerly a member of the CAA like all other Pride teams until the CAA ended sponsorship of wrestling in 2013.
