I was ready to drown puppies watching the first two minutes of DT, but that seems to be his MO.   Weather the storm early, give up points and just wear the guy out. 

 

Honestly though how does DT tire guys out so much?  He keeps doing it but I don't see anything out of the ordinary...

I really dislike the pushout point. I understand it and know why it's necessary but this is wrestling, not sumo. Takedowns should be more incentivized if that's the route they're going. 

They needed a way to address it when guys run straight backwards.  That is what was happening in this match.  But once Taylor started scoring TDs, they quickly overcame the repeated pushouts.  I think the rules worked perfect here.

There is still circling and side to side. We are just getting out of position by focusing on shooting rather than setting upi our shots with incredible, superior position. Iran has adapted to these rules faster. We need to make some adjustments.

At one point in the match, it was 4-4. Yaz had 4 pushouts and Taylor had 2 takedowns. It just irritates me when a guy can win like that by simply playing the edge, defending, and pushing his opponent out.
