Not necessary, but i'll put it this way, Downey can't maintain a training environment or a coach, he isn't gonna succeed in MMA. If he was he would have dumped wrestling long ago, just for the attention.
LJB was right, they were never gonna go, so they formatted the US open as if it was an olympic year, and then threw out some nonsense about the US Open winners "likely" going so they would only be 98% lying.
Well what is the financial incentive for USAW to make themselves look stupid by throwing in the word "likely".
How does this help them when they could have said nothing, or "we will determine a procedure when worlds is confirmed".
