Yeah man, that sucks for Baitsaev but who knows, maybe he closes the gap even more this year. I read some reports that said Sadulaev was thinking hes gonna have to move up to 97 in 2 years anyway so he may as well get used to the weight. Crazy thing though, I don't think Sadulaev is undersized for 97 kilos. 1st I look at the fact that aside from Snyder, he shur out his 4 other opponents at last years worlds. He outscored them 28-0. Secondly, as you pointed out, he lost by a point in the finals. And finally, word coming out of Russia was that he was pretty banged up after Rio, he got married, he had a lot of political/Public relations obligations, and he didn't even want to compete. Bilyal Makhov said the Russian Wrestling bigwigs put a lot of pressure on him to compete. I think he lost some muscle mass and even with that, he didn't look dwarfed, he just wasn't huge for the weight class. Its pretty interesting though, supposedly Sadulaev has been quoted a number of times as saying Snyder never beats him again.
