65 bracket

Recommended Posts

On the plus side, at least Rashidov is in the meat grinder every bit as much as Zane. So if he can somehow make a run, and Russia drops one before semis, could create some nice separation in team points. A huge "IF" and more likely to go the other way for team USA (similar scenario for Fix at 57). 

These first two weights will set the stage for either a very entertaining team race, or team title hopes could be crushed on day one.

Otoguro is a monster - his set-up-to-four-point-doubles are amazing.   In a matchup with Zain, the old Gable quote of "The more you're in on his legs, the less he's in on yours" is very true. Pressure him and make him play defense the whole first period.    Otoguro is not the type of wrestler to hold onto a lead either - he just keeps going.  If Zain cranks up the pace, he'll go right with him.  Maybe Otoguro run out of gas.  Easy strategy to type, super tough the execute.    

Of course IF they meet each other...No gimmes in this bracket.

Long analysis for a match that didn’t even come close to happening

Not anymore both eliminated.Micic is still wrestling at 57kg

Has Micic wrestled Atli yet, and if so, did he pull it off?

Edit: Just saw he lost 5-4.  Was it a good match?

Micic lost to Atli 5-4 in 1/4 and Atli won his semis which pulled Micic back in. Micic will need to win 1 match tomorrow to get into bronze match
