  1. It seems like the general consensus is that Slay over Saitiev in the Olympic finals is number one. Question: if it was a world championship finals win over Saitiev, would it still be number one in all of your humble opinions?
  2. A lot of people see pound for pound as a way to determine who would win if weights were somehow made equal. By that definition, women would never beat men because of their physiological differences. The actual definition, however is a comparison of skill level regardless of weight class. Going by the actual definition, I think you are correct.
  3. No he isn’t. He said men’s freestyle. You are right if it was both genders/all styles.
  4. What was Yazdani’s response though?
  5. I don’t think I have ever seen Saudulaev wrestle anyone like Cox which is why it’s such a dream matchup for me. Of course you could say the same with Yazdani but I’m still more interested in the Cox Sadulaev matchup. I’m hoping he goes 97.
  6. True. I don’t even know how I didn’t think of Burroughs.
  7. If he can naturally fill out the weight well and be a decent sized heavyweight then I like the idea. Like another poster here said though, I’m afraid he might be a little short to fill out and do well against the best of the world. He’s already about as thick as they come as a 97.
  8. 86 is the best place for Taylor as well. No matter which weight he chooses, we’re losing a world champ.
  9. Yazdani would be perceived as just as dominant as Sadulaev if David Taylor wasn’t around. I agree with you and don’t even really have a point. Just a random observation. Lol
  10. 57 Lee 65 Yianni 74 Dake 86 J’den or Taylor 97 J’den or Snyder 125 Steveson J’den will win either weight he goes for. Competitively vs Taylor, more controlled vs Snyder (a style thing)
  11. Cox vs Sadulaev is a dream match for me though so I hope he makes the team at 97. Selfish I know.
  12. I also like his chances more against the top domestic heavyweights than against J’den as a sucked down 97.
  13. Yeah that second shot clock point against Fix was the decider of this match. Tough one considering he was the only one with a takedown.
  14. You have a valid point that if you base it off of recent international results alone, it looks like he is going to dnp and I am not refuting that. However, if you look deeper into it, I think it paints a bigger picture as to where he is at compared to the top of the world. His Yasar results stem from losing to Yianni (who he has now beaten twice when it mattered) and then defaulting out of the rest of the tournament because of an injury. His Yarygin result is from losing to a 2018 World silver medalist by a last second takedown and then being eliminated when Rashidov didn’t make the finals. Before those results, his only international loss was from almost two years ago to another worlds silver. So his only losses to foreign wrestlers in the last two years have been to world medalists in competitive matches. Now I am not saying I think he will medal nor am I saying I think he won’t. I’m just saying that from what I see, he’s right there with the elite of the elite skill wise even though his credentials don’t necessarily show that yet.
