Ruth had more potential as a mixed martial artist than any other wrestler in the field at the NCAA Championships. I stand by this assertion. Ruth is one of the top-five most naturally gifted combat athletes I have ever laid eyes on.

He's certainly got talent as long as he remembers his defence. To often he is almost contemptuous of other guys ability to score on him, and ends up losing barn burners against great opposition.

 

As always great article by Riordan. That misdirection single is indeed incredible.

From the very good article posted:  "However, Ruth's international competition at 86 kg could foreseeably lead him to depart wrestling soon after the end of this Olympic cycle. Iran boasts a gaggle of extremely good 86 kg wrestlers, and Russia has seen the emergence of 18 year old world champion Abdulrashid Sadullaev, one of the only wrestlers I have ever seen more talented than Ruth (I'm not even sure I like writing about Sadullaev, he is so good that he sort of scares me a little)."

Ain't that the truth
