‪Abdullaev, Arif (AZE) vs Quintana, Miguel (CUB)‬‏ - YouTube
Quintana/Abdullev 2003 world finals. I remember hearing about Quintana's "stupid" decision to remain in the tripod (beginning of match) instead of flattening out at practice.

Finally the Worst Match Ever, Mishin vs Abrahamain for 2004 Olympic gold. I don't envy the officials who had to pick a winner from this shoving party. Abrahamain later alleged that the Russian federation threatened the officials to ensure Mishin got a victory.

Everyone feel free to post good ones from the worlds here as they appear!
2011 Worlds Greco 66kg Quarters - Justin Lester (USA) vs. Kanatbek Begaliev (KGZ) - YouTube
Incredible greco match 66 kg Lester vs Belagliev. It should shock absolutely no one who followed these two guys' careers that this one ends on a questionable call!
2011 Worlds Greco Semis - Manuchar Tskhadaia (GEO) vs. Justin Lester (USA) - YouTube
66 kg semis- Lester is one of my favorites, but he gets a lot of airmiles here!
2011 Worlds Greco 96kg Final - Elis Guri (BUL) vs. Jimmy Lidberg (SWE) - YouTube
Guri vs Lindberg 96 kg finals. I remember akzent hyping this guy after he pinned the Olympic Champ and NYAC, clearly he knew what he was talking about.
2011 Greco Worlds 60kg Final - Omid Noroozi (IRI) vs. Almat Kebispayev (KAZ) - YouTube
60 kg greco final- another awesome match! Got to say though, the Iranian was VERY close to losing by fall.
2011 World Championships – Greco-Roman
84 kg finals... such raw emotion for all guys as Selimov scores a gut wrench right at the buzzer to win it. On another note- how much weight do these guys cut? They look absolutely enormous.

Wow, the international forum is pretty dead considering the worlds just happened.
