    Takuto Otoguro

    After Rio, he went up to 61kg and lost the 2017 WTT finals match to his college rival. Then this year, he lost to Otoguro in the WTT finals match. I haven't seen him in any international tournaments before this year's U23 that's going on right now. He's slated to compete as Japan's 65kg entry.

    Let's not forget that Otoguro beat Higuchi in their WTT finals to rep Japan.

    Takuto Otoguro

    I'm really not sure about Otoguro wrestling senior level in 2016-2017 because he was still in HS. Otoguro was Japan's 60kg Jr National champion in 2016. He beat 6 collegiate wrestlers for that title. I think he could have been injured for Jr Worlds that year because the guy who he beat in the finals was Japan's 60kg rep at Jr Worlds in 2016. Higuchi moved up to 61kg after the Olympics(robbed in the final..) and lost to a college rival of his, Rinya Nakamura at Japan's WTT in 2017. Of course, we know that Yuki Takahashi was Japan's 2017 57kg rep and was the World Champ that year. Otoguro wrestled against Higuchi in the 65kg final of the Meiji Cup this year(basically Japan's WTT) and beat Higuchi 9-0 http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Rei+Higuchi/Japan+Wrestling+Invitational+Championships/7w9QJxknjJ4

    Looking into the future - 65kg

    If Yianni and JO are going to be in the WTT or compete overseas, I'm guessing one will go 65 and the other 70 kg.

    Sad / Taylor

    I guess we'll see when Sadulaev cuts to 57 kg after Spencer makes the team

    Maroulis gets smashed.

    No idea. I was just guessing that Valentin told her not to come back this year. I remember when Pico was in HS, Valentin told him to not jump to senior level even though Pico wanted to really bad. Pico wrestled Juniors that year instead.

    World Champs vs MMA Champ

    World Champs vs MMA Champ

    This wasn't MMA, but I know some of you probably saw this when it first came out as I did. Even though I wrestled and did a lot of BJJ after, I thought it was kind of a dumb event because it was a submission grappling event where you could win by submission or by judge's decision. The wrestlers had no idea how to do any submissions. Gable was there and it was called The Contenders, in Sioux City, Iowa. It was BJJ/Pancrase guys against freestyle wrestlers. That's the event where Frank Shamrock heel hooked Dan Henderson and made him scream in pain. No striking was allowed. Perretti was the promoter(from Extreme Fighting) Tsuyoshi Kosaka vs Tom Erikson(Erickson won by decision-basically just laid on top of Kosaka and kept control) Frank Shamrock vs Dan Henderson(Hendo got heelhooked and screamed in pain) Andre Pederneiras vs Townsend Saunders(Saunders by decision) Mike Van Arsdale vs Renato Verissimo(Van Arsdale by decision) Joao Roque vs Dennis Hall(Roque by decision-had a SWEET sweep reversal from the guard) Chris Barnes vs Carlos Newton(Barnes got armbarred) Kenny Monday vs Matt Hume(Monday got heelhooked)

    World Champs vs MMA Champ

    Gary didn't know jack about fighting on the ground and Mark put him there pretty fast. There's no way any current world champion wrestler or high level fs wrestler would beat a current MMA champ on wrestling alone. Even if the wrestler took the MMA guy down, I can guarantee you that the wrestler would get arm barred, triangled or guillotined even if they had the mount. If we're talking when the UFC first started and it was basically one discipline vs another, then that's a different story.

    65kg Meh...

    Not sure. Somebody's going to have to go back and look/add numbers haha I only know because UWW had mentioned it the day he won.

    Maroulis gets smashed.

    When I first heard about her moving back to So Cal to train, I had a feeling that she could possibly move out to AZ and join her long time friend, Victoria Anthony at ASU and since she's with the Sunkist Kids, it makes sense.

    Maybe the Japanese Cadet team went to NY for a visit.
