    What's the over/under on the number of points Sadulaev gives up in the tournament?

    Yeah, I was going to say 2.5.

    I know he merked Salas last time but I hope we see that matchup at some point again. Two most explosive dudes in the weight.

    He's only given up 3 push outs in international competition if I am not mistaken.

    I think a Georgian got him for 4. Karimi had a couple pushouts. Either way, idk how the fuck you score on the guy. Perfect positioning and just ridiculous explosiveness and strength.

    It was as a senior, the Georgian did hit him with a nice arm spin. Still teched the guy though. I would put my confidence in Sadulaev, Burroughs, Akgul (in that order). Those are guys I pretty much have penciled in at gold.

    I'd like to see Sharifov vs Sadulev. I still can't believe he spent the last 3 years at 97kg trying to knock off Gazyumov

    Sadulaev is only one I'd bet the house on.

    I think our results are going to be similar to last year's worlds, one, "maybe" two champs and an extra medal

    I had no idea Asgarov was only 23 years old.

    65 is definitely the deepest weight.

    I can't wait to see Sadulaev do work. I really hope Khinchegashvili gets gold, he is a really good and hard working guy, his superduck on Rahimi was beautiful. Vlasov is one of my bets too, he is a beast.

    I think Khinchegashvili should take gold. There are a lot of world champions in that bracket but I like the Georgian.

    Looking forward to watching the Wrestling events, will be the first time I see anyone compete live.

    Who should I look out for besides Burroughs?

    For the US? Snyder and Burroughs are the best bets to medal. I'm quickly becoming a fan of J'den Cox though. I think he'll be a force in coming years.

    Im looking forward to seeing Yazdani Chirati at 74kg too. I think that kid has a lot of upside.
