    Yeah I was just thinking of 60kg, at 55 he had some really top results as well I probably should've included them in my list, I might change things around then.

    My list would be very similar to JensenS but I would probably move up Yonemitsu. That was a hell of a draw he went through and he is Olympic champ, whereas Yazdani and Kudukhov are not.

    I'm going to take a shot at this weight by weight, after which I'll probably take a bit of a break posting on this board. Getting a bit of wrestling overload trying to watch all the matches

    55 kg
    1- Otarsultanov, Russia
    2- Lebedev, Russia. 2x world champ lost very close to Otarsultanov, probably less than 100% health wise.
    3- Khinegashvilli, Georgia. Olympic final could have gone either way, lost a great bout on tiebreakers.
    4- Yang, North Korea.
    5- Japan (names escapes me)
    6- Velikov, Bulgaria

    60
    1- Asgarov, Azarbayjan Probably the best season of any wrestler this year
    2- Kudukhov, Russia
    3- Scott,, USA. Very impressive.
    4- Sat, Russia. Crazy barn-burner of a match with Asragov earlier this year, closer than anyone else I can think of.
    5- Yumoto, Japan
    6- Dutt, India

    66
    1- Yonemitsu, Japan
    2- Kumar, India
    3- Lopez, Cuba
    4- Taghavi, Iran. Lost to Cuba in the first round at the Olympics, all clinches
    5- Hasaynov, Azerbayjan
    6- Kazakstan (bronze medallist, name escapes me)

    74
    1- Burroughs (USA)
    2- Tsargush (Russia)
    3- Goudrazi (Iran). Really looked like a deer in headlights in the finals IMO
    4- Tigiev (Uzbekistan)
    5- Gentry (Canada)
    6- Geduev (Russia)

    84- once again, the toughest weight to rank. Espinal's crazy out of nowhere run throws messes these up big time. Here's my best shot
    1- Sharifov, Azerbayjan
    2- Lashgari, Iran
    3- Saritov, Russia. Beat Espinal at the recent grand prix, and lacks the embarassing loss many of the other top guys recently suffered.
    4- Espinal, Puerto Rico. Very interested to see if he continues to be a world level wrestler after the Olympics
    5- Mashgarvilli, Georgia
    6- Urishev, Russia. He had a crappy draw but didn't look to impressive at the Olympics IMO>

    96- the Yazdani/Varner/Gadisov rankings have been debated to death. The one that really threw me was the Ukranian. Isnt' he one of the up and comers akzent was telling us about?
    1- Yazdani, Iran. Assuming he recovers quickly and fully from his injury.
    2- Varner, USA
    3- Gadisov, Russia. Can't put him over Varner with 0 world medals, and a loss to Gogchelidze this year I believe.
    4- Andriiyev (or whatever his name is), Ukraine.
    5- Gogchelidze, Georgia. It sucks for him that his best years co-incided with Gatsalov's.
    6- Gayzumov, Azerbayjan. I coudn't believe his collapse against Ukraine. Second year in a row he loses one he shoukldn't. What's going on with this guy?

    120
    1- Taymazov, Uzbekistan. Is he now the #2 all time heavyweight behind Medved? I'm not much of a historian... anyone else?
    2- Magomedov, Georgia. Solid win over Makhov.
    3- Makhov, Russia.
    4- Iranian, who I believe took Taymazov to double clinches in addition to beating Dlagnev
    5- Dlagnev, USA
    6- Shemarov, Belarus

    As much as I'd love to play the patriotic American and back big Bruce I think Taymazov is almost equal in total number of medals (I think he might have 9 total) but greater in the number of yellow medals pushes him over the top.

    He has never lost to Gogshelidze; beat him 2x this year - in the Iranian league and at the Olympic qualification tourney.

    I think Gogchelidze beat him in an early season tournament in Armenia before the two losses you mention. Perhaps Hubbard can help out, I think he was the one who posted it on the Canadian forum.

    I remember Howe beat Gentry (and lost to Garcia) early this year. Any other significant international results?

    strictly being objective, check the math. world/olympic medals: bruce 13 taymazov 9, golds bruce 4 taymazov 5. no doubt that greater consistency and longevity have to go to bruce.
