    Absolute beast of an athlete. Gentlemen and ambassador. We’re lucky to have him. This guy needs his own thread. How long till we see another like him? *note* It was 23 years between him and John Smith.

    The Iranian Underhook

    This* I really dislike it when people say "he just grabs an under-hook and pushes you out" . He has offense off it. He forces you to make bad decisions And yes he gets push-outs It's a serious scoring weapon

    Am I a traitor? (Yazdani)

    I can't help but love the Iranians. I find myself rooting as hard for them as our guys sometimes. You can feel how the fans live and die with their guys. I want us to win, but man will I also be happy if Iran is the one who beats us. Relentless pressure and effort. "doot-do-do-doot-doot-doot I-RAN" is one of the greatest sounds in sports imo.

    Am I a traitor? (Yazdani)

    I am obviously rooting for team USA, but if one of our stars has to go down, it's a little easier to swallow when it's to a great champ and warrior like HYC. The Persian fanbase has great knowledge and respect for our wrestlers (it was heartwarming when they counted down the clock, IN ENGLISH, at the end of JB's semifinal match), and it is time we return the favor. HYC is probably my favorite non-American wrestler. No one comes harder with those underhooks!

    Team Race Down to the Wire

    Tomorrow the Men's FS wraps up - Currently the scores stand at (this is with all earned points already assigned) EDITED BASED ON INFO FROM LATER POSTS Russia - 163 pts USA - 168 pts Iran - 151 pts Highest points each team can score if they win all their matches: Russia - 173 USA - 173 Iran - 171 Russia has one guy wrestling for Gold (97) and 1 for Bronze(70). Iran has 1 wrestling for Bronze (97) and 1 in reparcharge (70) and the USA has 1 wrestling for Gold (97) For the US to win we need Snyder to beat Sadulaev. If Snyder loses and the Russian bronze guy loses also US & Russia can tie at 168 pts. If that happens Iran could win if both their guys take bronze. If Russia wins both matches they have the team title. If Snyder loses to Sad and the Russian 70 kg loses US & Russia tie.

    Many (perhaps most?) freestyle wrestlers sport beards. Why is this so? Any theories? Who has the best one? Who has the worst? Are the un-bearded wrestlers the true iconoclasts and eccentrics? Are bearded guys more likely to win and, if so, does Michael Beard have an advantage?

    Smartest tactician, most clutch winner, and toughest most consistently unshakeable dude I have ever seen in any sport. A lot of brains and minds could go in that body and still come up empty for titles or never be able to make the comebacks, adversities, and adjustments he has.

    Am I a traitor? (Yazdani)

    I don't know that DT was "giving him another shot" so much as DT wants to cement his own legacy. He's still "only" a one time world champ and one time Olympic champ. He wants to stamp his name in the record books, and that takes volume given our storied history in the sport.

    Are you telling me an anti-vaxxer is getting his data from a bad, obviously propagandistic source that confirms his priors? WHAT???? Not all vaccine skeptics are this stupid, but some of the stuff posted on this forum is breathtaking. I've met 8 year olds better at vetting information sources.

    Both lowering. Fakes. Burroughs with blast double! 2! 3-0. 1:43 to go. Let's go! Ugh .. blood. Slay in Burroughs' corner. Slay yelling angles and sweeps! Another extra wrap for the Iranian. 1:38 to go on restart. Another double!! They are unreal. From far, gets to both knees, Iran bails. 5-0!! Burroughs warned for hands to face. 1 min to go. One blue for Iran? For face? Confirmed. Burroughs is laughing, thinks ridiculous. 5-1. 10 sec. Iran not doing anything. He is done with 5 sec left. JORDAN FREAKING BURROUGHS ADDS TO HIS GOLDS!!!!!

    Flo is not in Oslo

    Flo is not doing commentary for the main UWW feed (which goes out to many other countries, not just where Flo streams it) but 6 Flo's are very much Oslo and working inside the arena right now. A few more Flo's will be in Austin hosting a watch party. Also you couldn't watch Worlds on UWW's website for free since at least 2017. TrackWrestling had UWW streaming rights from 2017-2020 and charged you to watch. I think before before that they may have been free but they didn't even have a live broadcast in the FILA days, so we're talking maybe 2 or 3 years of free broadcasts (which also meant UWW was losing lots of money on the event). You also aren't being charged $150 to watch the worlds on Flo you are being charged $150 for a years worth of the greatest bundle of wrestling the world has ever known. still may not be worth the money to you but you get a whole lot more than one super bad ass tournament for your 150.
