Burroughs is getting on in years. No telling when he'll leave his shoes on the mat. IMAR is undefeated against Green, and he was thinking about going 65 as recently as last year!

I think Ringer goes full feed and takes on Dake at the new weight, Burroughs goes 74 and Green remains at 70. That gives IMAR a choice: Try to beat a freestyle legend or get ready for 70 against a guy he can beat. (Of course, there are others at that weight who'll be tough; I'm thinking of Jimmy Kennedy), but IMAR's path is a lot easier there because Burroughs.

The thing about IMAR is that he's always willing to take the hardest path. Always. He is a Vision Quester, no doubt!

I forgot to mention that the Russian IMAR lost to by a point was also a Junior World Champ at the same weight and during the same year that Mark Hall took 9th.

Now, IMAR doesn't have divided responsibilities. He's been practicing Folk and then Free and then Folk and then Free. He's also changed weights multiple times. All he has to do starting on Sunday was train Free and pick a weight.

How good can IMAR get at Free now that he can concentrate on it? Well, physically he looks like a mini-Sadulaev. Also, if you watched any of his freestyle matches, you can see that he will use guts and leg laces more than any of the American middle and upper weight guys.

I'm very excited for him!

As a final note, you can spot the Iowa troll because in one post he's begging for IMAR to come to the lame HWC, and in the next, he questions IMAR's abilities.

(Jeez, this took a half hour to type on a freaking phone).

GO IMAR!!!
I believe Kennedy has retired now.

I can't say for certain if Imar will ever make a world team but he will definitely be in the mix and I'm sure he'll at least be on a few national teams.

I believe Taylor is currently ranked 5th in the world.

The new weights for UWW Senior Worlds will help both David Taylor and Kyle Dake make their first Senior World Teams this summer.

Never said he wasn’t a good wrestler.he obviously is. I was stating a fact. Just because you can beat someone once doesn’t mean you will again.

Kind of ruins your statement.
