  2. Exciting news: I am hoping he competes at 97 kg and not heavyweight.
  3. I hope he isn't too banged up, surprisingly he is only 28. He's has a great career.
  4. It is widely known in Russia he is a few years older, but like many said, does it really matter anymore when evaluating his results? I'm more surprised that they entered him as a cadet, they must have known he was good enough to win juniors.
  5. I believe TR Foley or someone else shot a video about how wrestling practice in Mongolia was a community event, with all ages and genders mixed in and that a lot of older guys still got after it. I think that the more light sparring practice approach is more common in other countries as they tend to wrestle more year round and aren't as focused on "seasons". Also wrestling is associated with sport clubs and gyms, not schools. I think that would explain why you don't see that many opportunities for older adults to do non-competitive wrestling practice.
  6. USA Wrestling has a clubs directory, search for clubs that accept Open division wrestlers (18+)
  7. I like the idea in theory, but it probably wouldn't ever happen. I would only think the UFC guys have a chance at 125 and heavyweight in those matchups. I also think you forgot to check this years NCAA results.
  8. I don't think it has to do with age. I think it's more for lifestyle reasons and going up in weight considerably. He seems to enjoy NYC nightlife a lot, and I don't blame him. It's probably not an ideal situation for training though.
  9. I see Dake controlling this match comfortably. Chamizo is a worse matchup for JB. Dake is a better upper body wrestler than JB.
  10. Almost all of them would be good at it if they trained. The best suited would be lankier wrestlers because reach plays a more important role in MMA than it does in wrestling. Guys who are faster would also do better for the same reason (striking in MMA).
  11. Ben Askren destroyed 2013 NCAA 197lb Champ Quentin Wright in late 2013 in a modified freestyle match.
  12. He beat Salas Perez, a 3x world medalist and he was undersized. He would have done well.

  14. Thought this was a fun clip from Gatsalov’s Instagram page. Two complete legends having fun and getting after it:
