    Being from a country is not a wrestling credential. Colby placed something like 4th in the nation one year and Khabib won some local intramurals in a like a rec league.

    There's a reason why Khabib is ducking 170 and has yet to fight a legitimate wrestler at 155.

    You're right, he made the tournament but not top 8. I have been living a lie.

    Abel. And yes, I remember. A couple body locks and a ridiculous amount of mat returns. Beeb had zero interest in releasing the body lock to inflict damage as I recall. Do you remember the way Beeb dominated Tibau with his grappling?

    If I remember correctly Colby did beat the national champion during the year

    Why do Americans always think they're the best wrestlers in the world?


    Hint: They're not.

    The US has the most olympic medals in wrestling out of any country. Second in gold medals to the entire soviet union. It's not a super audacious claim at this point. Its between Russia and the US for sure.

    Not really.

    You're excluding the fact that Russia has been only competing in the Olympics since the mid-90's and they have 63 medals, compared to the United States having 132 over the last century.

    The Soviet Union also has another 116 medals.



    If you go down to a "per capita" basis then there are several countries that perform far better than the U.S. in wrestling. Bulgaria, for example, has only 7 million people and yet they have 69 medals to the U.S.'s 132 and the U.S. has 350 million people.

    Covington is a far worse wrestler and striker than Woodley. He's going to need to Homer Simpson this one. Man I just dislike both of them so much. Rooting for the double KO over here!

    The rest of the world doesn't care about div 1 wrestling because its folkstyle and the rest of the world does freestyle or Greco.

    A lot of Russians get paid to represent other countries they have some heritage from. I counted 4 medalist from last summer olympics.

    So you're saying the Russians have so many good wrestlers that they're actually going to other country's teams and still winning medals?

    Sounds about right.

    ... and Khabib won two Sambo WORLD championships.


    None of this "4th in the nation" bullshit for the Khabibster.

    I remember that.

    I remember that time that Warley Alves dominated Colby Covington in the grappling as well.

    Khabib laughs at colbys american wrestling credentials, locks him up and punches his head severely while telling Dana next to the cage to send him someone worthy of a challenge

    GTFO

    The RDA/Khabib fight took place after RDA had already improved substantially. He clowned Cerrone in the fight before that loss, and he started his title run immediately afterwards.

    You sure about that? He got taken down by Saffedine, who isn't well-reputed for his offensive wrestling.
