  1. So, you mean Bo is going to get annihilated as well? Just flew over your head 10000%. What I'm referring to is that grappler111 was saying that the 2 guys I referenced earlier- Frank Shamrock and Matt Hume didn't practice BJJ and incorporate it into their submission grappling just because they are "Pankration" and "Catch Wrestling". St. Pierre was the best MMA wrestler even though he lists "Karate" as his background when he was dominating the UFC in the WW division. Those are facts and I'm not talking about a wrestling match. We're talking about a submission grappling match here.
  2. So just because that's what they're categorized as, they didn't practice BJJ? St. Pierre must not have practiced wresting since his background is Karate then.
  3. Yeah, I dunno why Monday did that. Just really inexperienced in those positions. It was like "Here's my leg, please submit me". Yep, No GI BJJ has grown exponentially compared to back in the early 90s. Everything used to be gi only, then ADCC came around and really made no gi grappling explode. Especially because Americans started to compete and win like Kerr, Ricco Rodriguez, Tito, etc.
  4. You're trying to pretend like Hume and Shamrock didn't practice BJJ....
  5. He wrestled at the US Open this past March. I can't remember if he wrestled freestyle since then.
  6. Standard submissions, then don't expect Bo to last long unless he just sits in the guard or just tries to stand and stay neutral. Doesn't matter how long Bo's been training BJJ. He's been really active wrestling, so his BJJ hasn't been what it should be for this match. If you win the ADCC Absolute division, like Gordon has as well as being a 2x ADCC world champion, then Bo's in for some major trouble. Anybody else ever watch the PPV back in the day -BJJ vs wrestling called "The Contenders". That's the show that was in Iowa, had Gable commentating, Tom Erickson won by decision, Hendo got submitted by Frank Shamrock with a heel hook, Townsend Saunders won by decision, Van Arsdale won by decision, Dennis Hall lost by decision, Chris Barnes got armbarred by Carlos Newton, Kenny Monday got subbed by a toehold from Matt Hume. If no leg submissions are allowed, then Bo will last a little longer.
  7. Kordell is probably better off to redshirt this season because of his injury. He's not beating Zahid at 184 and 197 might be too big of a jump in weight.
  8. Academically speaking, Anthony already graduated from ASU several months ago.
  9. Hey now, why you gotta talk about Matt Brown and his senior year at PSU like that.
  10. Hate to say this since the kid is from CA, but Mantanona ain't gonna be doing anything of note. He's got Valencia nightmares since last year when Zahid destroyed him twice at the same duals. Like I've been saying for years, A. Valencia needs to vary his neutral game because everybody has been scouting him and the double/throw by ever since he beat Tyler Caldwell at the US Open while he was in HS.
  11. lmao, more like Richard Lewis vs Larry David...was watching Curb when I posted
  12. Good match, but It's like last season when Daniel Lewis got that lucky pin and then Zahid thoroughly dominated him in the NCAA tournament.
  13. Willie to Trackwrestling. j/k
  14. So basically, Bo won the title of 22nd best in the world since 21 men competed in the 92kg weight class at the 2019 real senior world championships.
  15. Tommy Rowlands(Ohio State alum, 2x NCAA champion) is one of the people who started Rudis
  16. lol So, why isn't our World Team 9/10 Western PA/NE Ohio if they're the highest caliber and would be comparable to the North Caucus?
  17. Yeah, I don't know if he would either(that's 28 pounds), but I think Snyder there would be a lot better than Gwiz right now. Especially after this year's World Championships.
  18. lol USAW just posted Flo's rankings https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Rankings/College-Rankings/2019/September/25/FloWrestling-Rankings-Sept-23?fbclid=IwAR2pJK3zJM4oRzh3LtP3jkBYUEJAQjmf_ZmmrXEkKo-DNKD1T5DelOt5YDM
  19. Aaron has a Mexican passport that he just got this year, so if you see him start posting all kinds of stuff to his Instagram and the location is the NY/NJ RTC with Kalika, Chamizo and Vlad, then you know it's serious. All he has to do is qualify the weight at the Pan Am qualifiers in Canada next March, right?
  20. He's going up. No way he goes down. Way too big already.
  21. I would definitely like to see Snyder move up and take Gwiz's spot and Cox go up and take Snyder's spot.
  22. I don't think there is any place in the US for him to do that besides the OTC and I'm pretty sure J'Den isn't going down in weight for the Olympics.
  23. But will Pyle complain even more on every podcast?
