  1. Agreeing with OP. Cox is our best wrestler at present, maybe even the best p4p in the world. And after listening to his post-match interview, I'm convinced that he will be going 97 next year, for the following two reasons: 1. Cutting weight sucks - so why do it if you feel like you are the man to beat? Cox is a HUGE 92, looks to already be very lean (KJ stated he is "leaner" and "stronger" than last year), and admittedly had a pretty tough/miserable time making 86. So now with new same day weigh-in procedures, I just dont see it happening. 2. Cox wants to build his legacy - for some reason, myself included, people have always somewhat overlooked his abilities/accomplishments, and before this year was never really in the top P4P discussions for best wrestler in the world. This year he has been on a mission to not only win, but win with dominance, never satisfied, and for the most part smashing the competition. He mentioned the legacy talk in his post-match interview, so what better way to build a legacy than to take out Captain America and then knock off the consensus "best wrestler on the planet" Sadulaev at the Olympic games?
  2. 57: Nahshon 65: Yianni 74: Dake 86: DT 97: Cox 125: Gable
  3. No argument from me. If I had to pick it today, I'd pick J'den for the spot at 97. However, I do like his chances better against the likes of DT/Yazdani vs Snyder/Sadulaev for eventual Olympic gold, assuming the weight cut is attainable.
  4. With how he has progressed and looked this year, I'd consider it a toss-up at 97, and I'd favor him over a DT coming back from injury. I know this was a non-olympic weight, but the guy seems to be on a completely different level than his competition right now.
  5. Congrats to J'Den! 2-time world champ, solid 4-0 win.
  6. To add, he won on criteria with a tied score. These two are so evenly matched, it may always come down to simply who scores last. With wrestlers this clutch and this high-level scoring ability, advantage seems to go to whoever is trailing late. Glad to see JB finish strong and bring home another medal, not a damn thing to hang his head about. He is one of the proven greats in wrestling, and it now seems that Sidakov may be an emerging great as well.
  7. With Amine making semis, it looks like the University of Michigan has qualified as many Olympic weights as the entire USA team (both in different weights). Congrats to them, much more work to be done by us.
  8. https://www.flowrestling.org/events/6561363-2019-uww-senior-world-championships/schedule Semis 6:45AM Eastern Medals 8:00AM Eastern
  9. Semis should be 6:45 Eastern, 5:45 Central, medal matches to follow after some kind of break
  10. Dake's defense is just so freakin' good. Solid 5-1 win there over a tough Russian, only gave up a point on shot clock.
  11. Dake destroyer of Russians, up now.
  12. If Graff can get by Lomtadze , he should have an easier semi to make finals, big match but I like our chances.
  13. Tough loss there. German hit a nice 4 point fireman's on the edge to start the match, then Downey became predictable and continued to pressure and force ties, which the German continued to counter effectively until the eventual tech.
  14. Amine with a wild finish get's TD at the buzzer to lead 4-2, under review
  15. I expect it from Snyder and Dake, but I've been very much impressed with the dominance and poise of Graff and PD3 in their first two bouts. Team USA looking very solid so far on day 3.
