  1. I'm very happy for Agca, I met him a couple of times and he's gonna be the number 1 in Germany in a few years, if he joins the military or similar to focus on training. How was the match?
  2. I don't know, in my opinion the Russian wasn't as good as I expected at the grand prix of Germany. Heiki Nabi is not bad, but I don't know the guy from Finland and roumania http://rdb.ringen.de/?sv=cms&nc=38&tk=tnm&op=tpa&xotypeid=0&tnmid=6&tnacid=3&xoview=q&wcid=21&paid=570&xopaid=570&xoname=Shchur&xogivenname=Vitalii&xoorg=Russland&orgid=73&xoou=HUN&__=1565385892.1893995250
  3. From my perspective (Germany), I appreciate every foreign wrestler willing to train here and help our own athletes to develop their skills. Since the crisis in Syria we got a few Iranian Guys like Asghar Lagari (FS 125kg) and Abdolmohammad Papi (GR 61/66kg) and we only benefitted from them, but also I think prior to international competitions athletes in the same bracket should be separated from each other for the last part of the trainingcamp. For example JB and Chamizo use to train in the same Club, chamizo should be not allowed to train from the moment JB is nominated for worlds.
  4. Old men strength, heavyweight and grecro roman wrestling, looks like a good combination :) will he compete at world's in September? If yes, I think he is the favorite for gold, final against kayaalp from turkey.
  5. I know the most guys around here don't follow greco as much as Freestyle but please consider to look at Frank Stäbler when he will wrestle his matches at 67kg :) He's the German equivalent to Borroughs (not as much Medals as Borroughs but I think you know what I mean), he won 2015, 2017 and 2018 World (66kg, 71kg and 72kg) Championsships and he is looking good in his old Weightclass 67kg with a win yesterday over Artem Sukov (Gold World Championship 67kg) at the UWW Grand Prix of Germany and he's aiming for his fourth title and for his first Olympic medal. He's a great rolemodel for any wrestler and his style is really fun to watch.
  6. Well, at least nobody has to worry Ben will get more braindamage in this match up. I think he will win this by decision, so many good wrestlers were able to beat Maia and if askren sticks to the same gameplan, I see him winning. Rest in peace to the boxer :( I saw it today in the news... roundabout 260 strikes to the head. The coach did the right thing in stopping him from continuing the fight but unfortunately it was to late.
  7. Is there any update on zain's injury? With the whole situation around Yianni-zain it would be weird if he's bad enough injured to not compete at world's...
  8. 3 hours ago, Flo posted on Facebook bajrang will wrestle 65kg
  9. I can understand your point and agree with it on several terms. In case of bo nickal, I agree with you, anything but Ufc and maybe titleshots would be disappointing. I think, if you can make it to the top in secondary promotions like strikeforce or even bellator, you are still a successful mma fighter and could be a top 15 guy in the Ufc. Best example is gegard mousasi, he lost his last fight against Lovato but I would still consider him a top 10 guy or even more if he stayed in the Ufc. Wasn't on my mind to make an argument about this whole topic, just wanted to share my thoughts and opinions about it :)
  10. Well, what is limited success in mma, when you fight in one of the top promotions? Like Ufc, bellator, strikeforce, pfl or rizin? Palmer won the first pfl tournament and 1 million dollar, Lawal was strikeforce and rizin champion and the heavyweight Rosholt had an good run in the Ufc but was cut because of his style
  11. Totally agree, but not every fighter will be a champion, that's life. I think still he could win a couple of fights in the Ufc, maybe not the top guys but what about fighters like Neil magny, Kevin Lee or even Demian Maia (tbh, if Maia can't get the takedown it will be an ugly striking match)? I definitely would watch any of these matchups and I hope he sticks around for at least one or two fights.
  12. Don't agree with that... Masvidal fight with just 5 sec don't tell anything about his ability to wrestle, since Askren is in the Ufc he only fought Lawler (ex champion) and Masvidal (rank 4 or 5), I want to see him at least one or twice more against Opponents from Rank 7-15 Pico really should come back to wrestling, with 22 years of age, he can go back to mma after 2024, or pick the right gym and right opponents.
  13. Wasn't he retired already? He had an amazing run in mma, claiming the bellator and one fc belt but he is to one dimensional for the Ufc right now... I remember his no contest against Luis Santos, he got a bit beat up in those 2 minutes until the eyepoke and I think against striker with good takedown defense he will take unnecessary damage. The Ufc should hire him for broadcasting and I bet he's a good coach, so maybe this could be the future for him.
  14. Can you post the link to the stream?
  15. Well, not entirely correct to translate "die Ringer" in the wrestler, but tbh, as a foreigner I favor Dieringer over Dake because it's funny his nickname is wrestler in German xD
  16. https://unitedworldwrestling.org/article/yasar-dogu-set-welcome-wrestlings-biggest-stars Entry list is online
  17. This time there was no livestream from uww, there was some Belarus stream but maybe somebody recorded a few of the matches and loaded them up to YouTube.
  18. I underestimated him a bit previous to the event, because of his layoff since worlds, hopefully dake will in the same place as Sidakov when coming back from injury. But the whole Russian freestyle men team looked really good, 4 gold and 2 bronze, not bad.
  19. She won 2-0 :) with luzie manke in repechage and francy rädelt in the finals we may got two more medals. I'm looking forward to 97kg and 130gr, etka Sever and Jello Kramer got U23 medals and I hope they can win a few fights or even a medal, but Sever wasn't impressive at German nationals last month, he placed 5th.
  20. But I can't blame them for not wrestling for the US... I guess it's a bit like in Russia, if you're number 3 or 4, you might could be a world champion but you will never get the chance to wrestle at those tournaments, maybe you know Kakhaber Khubezhty from Russia, he won against numerous world medalist in the German Bundesliga but never got the chance to wrestle at worlds as a senior.
  21. Good for him, I was wondering because I know a bit of the financial support system in wrestling in Germany and it's not really good, so I was wondering how a small country like San Marino handles it. I think it's "best case" for athletes like Amine and Micic to wrestle for country's like San Marino and Serbia, maybe they could have an international career under the Flag of America but maybe not. Serbia got a few good greco wrestlers but I don't think San Marino got a lot of good wrestlers, so it's good for him to be the number one there, have success and maybe get some money for flights or something else
  22. I'm asking myself, how is the sponsorship for athletes from San Marino? Just 30k people and gross domestic product of 2million. Maybe the athlete have to pay for flight, hotel and everything else
  23. Well, from German perspective "good results" from the freestyle team. I remember a few years ago everybody said Dudarov will always be Nr 4/5 in Germany but he improved well and won bronze against silver world medalist. Nina hemmer will wrestle tomorrow for bronze, hopefully she can win but to be honest, I'm looking forward to world championships greco because we got a few wrestlers with chances to medal
  24. New member on the board, wrestler from Germany, unfortenaly we got no community and board like this for talking about international wrestling, so I joined here. I wrestled against Eduard Popp (5th place Olympic 2016 130kg) and Jello Kramer (bronce u23 Worlds 130kg 2017) in tournaments, lost to both.
