  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Can you post the link to the stream?
  6. 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
  7. https://unitedworldwrestling.org/article/yasar-dogu-set-welcome-wrestlings-biggest-stars Entry list is online
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. She won 2-0 :) with luzie manke in repechage and francy r├Ądelt 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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.
