    Yasar Dogu

    When you go to the UWW website, there is a video link for the event (see below) but when you click on it, it says you (I) can't watch it in my local area. If you click on that, it takes you to FLO's website. They are broadcasting the event starting at 4 AM, but as I'm pretty sure you know, they are a subscription service. https://unitedworldwrestling.org/event/yasar-dogu-5?tab=results

    Yasar Dogu

    Who will be in Zain's and Yianni's respective corners when they wrestle late tonight/early tomorrow (4 AM EST)? Are there any Cornell or PSU coaches in Istanbul?

    Yasar Dogu

    Are the draws really blind? Most of the major wrestling countries in the UWW are known for corruption. In fact, it is hard to think of any that aren't thoroughly corrupt.

    Askren.......OUCH!

    Askren might just be shopping for a rocking chair next week, when he wakes up. Borroughs humbled him pretty badly in wrestling And well . . . lights out in MMA. (I hear he is . . . supposedly pretty good in frisbee golf . . . though it is not an Olympic sport and pays nothing

    PSU Coaching Tree

    I believe Andrew Alton is (or was) with) F& M. https://www.godiplomats.com/sports/m-wrestl/2015-16/releases/20151008q646a2 Dylan Alton (his twin brother) is (or was) with Rider: https://gobroncs.com/coaches.aspx?rc=653&path=wrestling
  11. If you view this development procedurally or in terms of principle, I suppose you can make the claim and case that Dake is gaming the system and helping himself out to be more prepared coming off an injury. If you view it it more pragmatically, you might likely see it as increasing the odds that the US will get the best wrestler (at least in Dake's case) at the weight or the best version of that wrestler (again at least in Dake's case and maybe even also Deiringer's ) for the wrestle-off. Personally, I hope we see both guys at their relative best on August 17th. I also think we will learn something about their current conditions very shortly—at Yasar Dogu (Deiringer) and the Spanish Grand Prix (Dake). The former is obviously a much tougher tournament.

    Final X - Lincoln

    Who you got? World War (match) III Fix /Gilman IMar / JB

    Final X - Lincoln

    Endless laces and turns stink. Makes the sport less interesting rather than more.
  14. dmm53

    Final X - Lincoln

    Agreed.

    Final X - Lincoln

    Houdini wins again. Thought IMar had him.

    Final X - Lincoln

    Gilman just got ruled and schooled.

    Koll on the Call

    If, after this dispute is resolved, there is a rule change, I think it should be named "The XYZ Rule" Final X & Y (for Yianni) & Z (for Zain)

    Koll on the Call

    This may have already been mentioned, but . . . . On a recent FRL episode, they said that the Yianni camp (aka Koll) has acknowledged that if the decision is made in favor of Yianni, that Zain and Yianni would have to re-wrestle the entire second match before a third one even happens (if it happens). The reason is that UWW rules state that once a wrestler's hand has been raised in victory that is final (and the outcome itself can't be changed in favor of the other wrestler). That is, unless there is some procedural appeal of the whole match (in which case you re-wrestle that match).

    Pico shoulda stuck with Wrestling

    Zain could probably just knock out "glass jaw" Pico with a few slaps to the head now.

    Pico shoulda stuck with Wrestling

    I highly doubt that Pico could ever make 65 KG and it would take a ton of work to get back to where he was on the mat. Besides, Zain and Yianni and others have improved greatly over this time span.

    Pico shoulda stuck with Wrestling

    Aaron Pico vs. Adam Borics Pico is 4-2 in the red gloves with white trunks, hailing from Whittier, CA and fighting out of Albuquerque, NM. Borics is 12-0 in the blue gloves and black trunks for this fight, hailing from Hungary and fighting out of Fort Lauderdale, FL. The ref is Dan Miragliotta. Round 1: Quick tap of gloves. Pico shoots 20 seconds into the round and has the takedown 10 seconds later. Borics gets his back to the fence and posts on one hand as Pico tries to drag him away from the wall. Pico finally picks him up and slams Borics down in the middle of the cage. Borics tries to get back up and eats a left hand before he does at 2:18. Borics tries a jump knee and throws a leg kick. Borics lands another and Pico goes right back to the takedown slam in the center at 2:49. Pico is trying to take the back while Borics tries to control the arms and wrists. Borics tries and fails to sweep but is able to get back to his knees. Pico ties up his legs with his own but Borics breaks the grapevine and gets back up at 4:39. Pico with a right hand and a level change then a right elbow before the bell. Opening round goes 10-9 to Pico. Round 2: Pico gets another takedown 14 seconds into the round. Borics looks for upkicks and Pico avoids it and lets Borics stand up at 1:08 before taking him down again nine seconds later. Miragliotta calls for more work twice. Borics gets to his knees and Pico responds by kneeing Borics in the left thigh before pulling him back down. Borics stands up and turns around at 3:44. Borics rocks Pico with a flying knee and the fight is over!! Pico was eating hammerfists at Miragliotta stepped in and still looked dazed and confused afterward. Final result: Adam Borics wins via KNOCKOUT at 3:55 in round two.

    Most annoying commentator catchphrases?

    How about some favorite remarks by the pundits and commentators? I had to laugh when Jim Gibbons (I believe it was him) said that IMar has "prison strength".

    Most annoying commentator catchphrases?

    "Workman-like performance"

    Does Zain have a shot against Yianni?

    It's been so ridiculous to watch so many anoint Diakomihalis as the next US World medalist or even World Champ at 65 KG when he had not even made a senior world team. Read back through all the posts saying Zain didn't have a chance; that Y.D. would win in two; etc. Take note of all the failed Nostradamus figures. You were utterly and completely WRONG. And some of us are enjoying the schadenfreude. But, of course, the human mind (governed by evolutionary survival and self-deception) is given to downplaying and ignoring its own errors and focusing on the errors of others so that will never or very rarely happen. Zain just out-wrestled and out-scored and out-scrambled the anointed Wunderkind.
