Taylor has second round match with guy who beat J'Den last year at Worlds. That will be interesting.

Taylor will smash him. That guy is solid but jden was suffering from the weight cut and got sloppy.

 

Taylor better win...that was the match he talked **** about in Twitter

Taylor's possible third round match is with Turkey's Bilici, who is ranked 12th in the world by FLO.  Erdin (ranked 14th by FLO) from Turkey is on the other side of the bracket.

Brackets are loaded, should be fun. Taylor's first round match is real tough too. Probably gonna see fireworks in that one.

 

JB and Chamizo on opposite sides setting up possible final. Logan's first round opponent is no slouch either.

 

And not to hijack the thread on this point but c'mon, at 97kg there's Alborov (AZE) vs Sharifov (AZE) first round and India vs India first round. Some may disagree with me but I think this defeats the whole purpose of international competition.

The brackets are out for this weekend’s Yasar Dogu in Turkey, where the United States men’s freestyle squad aims to enhance its standing in the United World Wrestling rankings.


Americans Thomas Gilman, Logan Stieber, Jordan Burroughs, David Taylor and Kyle Snyder are scheduled to take the mat Friday in Istanbul.


Full brackets are linked below and we’ll have the tournament streamed live for free on Trackwrestling throughout the weekend. Action begins Friday morning at 4 a.m. ET.


Gilman is slated to open the tournament against Kazakhstan’s Berdakh Primbayev in the first round at 57 kilograms and the 2017 World silver medalist would tangle with Turkey’s Suleyman Atli in the quarterfinals if he gets past Primbayev. Atli won last year’s Yasar Dogu, claimed a European U23 title in 2017 and grabbed a bronze on the senior level at the 2017 European Championships.


Stieber opens the tournament at 65 kilograms against Kazakhstan’s Daulet Niyazbekov, a 2018 Asian champion.


Burroughs faces Iraq’s Saeed Zervanatareq in his first bout at 74 kilograms. It’s worth noting that the five-time World and Olympic champion is on the opposite side of the bracket from two-time World champ Frank Chamizo of Italy.


Taylor opens the tournament against Kazakhstan’s Azamat Dauletbeko at 86 kilograms. He could run into 2017 World silver medalist Boris Makoev of Slovakia in the quarterfinals.


Snyder received a first-round bye. The three-time World and Olympic champ will either face Ukraine’s Murazi Mchedlidze or Iran’s Alireza Goodarzi. Snyder could be in line for a possible semifinal bout against 2012 Olympic gold medalist Sharif Sharifov of Azerbaijan. Sharifov first must get past fellow Azeri Aslanbek Alborov, a 2017 World bronze medalist.

Steiner lost? The guy has the widest standard deviation on performance ... can beat the very best, and lose to them, can beat the ok guys, and lose to them. Performance is like a box of chocolates.
