    Does anybody have any info about this? Is this the suggestion of FILA or IOC? When is the next meeting for FILA and discussion of the rules?
    6 weights... are you sure?
    Is the introduction of Grappling (in the Olympic program) the reason?

    Could it be that there will be 6 weights in the Olympics but there will be 7 weights in World Championships?

    And yeah if they are lowering the weight to make space for Grappling it sucks than.
    Cause Grappling is not Wrestling its fuckin Grappling

    In my opinion the problem isn't Grappling but female Wrestling and two bronze medals.

    I like the old weights better. The ones during and before Sydney. They've screwed it all up now.

    I agree with Greco.
    Also, too many wrestlers are giving up weight to move up to 55Kg and now if they force them to move up to 60Kg, there are going to be a lot of great wrestlers who cant compete with people who are just to big for them.

    I am not bashing Grappling I have nothing against Grappling.

    My opinion is that Grappling should be considered a seperate sport from Freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling.

    I hated how Fila is introducing various fighting styles like Pangration and grappling. In my opinion Fila is expanding tooo much

    And yeah the past weights were great because there wasn't a lot of gap between weights.
