    I disagree with this because the trials are essentially a wrestle off. If he missed by a quarter of a pound or less, does it really make a difference in finding out who the best wrestler is?

    In my opinion, if JB did miss weight, Imar did the right thing by trying to take the spot in an actual match. If he'd just been given the spot without a match there would always be that asterisk no matter how well he performed at worlds and no one would know how close he really was with Burroughs. He nearly pulled it off and showed he can compete with anyone there.

    My philosophy might just be different but I say take the best guy at the weight to have the best chance of winning a medal.

    If he did not make weight he should of lost his spot and no a asterisk would not of been by his name.  I don’t believe that USA Wrestling would of allowed that to happen.

    Great fighter but not the best in the history. In my opinion he is the best 155 but not the goat. The goat is called Jones after the HW title. The next is called Chimaev.

    Jones lost the opportunity to be a GOAT with all his PED busts.  JMO

    My prediction is based on having heard the same pledge 100 times. It's never honored.

    Khabib is from a different culture I could see him staying retired.  But also I think he said retiring from the UFC so only time will tell.

    I don't think its revisionism at all.  It's not like Taylor just grew a few inches between seasons.  After another unsuccessful attempt at making the team at 74, he specifically went on a weight gaining program to move up to 86.  It was a specific, committed, intent....to move up from 74.

    If you watched Taylor back at 74 KG you could tell he was pulling a lot of weight and was not going to be be to hold that weight for long.  JMO
