    2nd period - Gogshelidze from the clinch.
    3rd period - Yazdani 1 on push out; Gogshelidze 1 on single leg (then he attemted leg lace but couldn't score); Yazdani 1 takedown (then he successfully leg-laced Gogshelidze but at the point of the very turn, the time was over).
    awesome, mashallah Yazdani, he is a major force now at 96 gogshelidze, tigiev, kurbanov, ebrahimi and gave gatsalov serious problems, i was thinking only a few days ago how gog seems to give iranian wrestlers such a hard time and can any beat him, the last thing i'd expect is for a guy who is more known for clinching and strength at 84kg to go up in weight and beat a guy as strong as gogshelidze.
    As for the p4p, this year i see mirzaei breaking in, he's beaten yazdani, sokhiev, aldatov, azgharbazrei, lashgari and really should have beaten salas in 2009 i don't know how he messed that match up, i think this year he will do big things at 84kg
    Any news when the next matches are gonna be on? Or if they will replay the match online.

    No doubt that Hasaynov is a stud and Sushil beat him heads up. However, I still contend that if those five guys hadn't been bunched together (among the five of them accounted for three gold, two silver and four bronze medals since 2005), Kumar very well might not have made the finals.

    The real shame is that Garzon was probably the best at that weight, he looked unstoppable before the suspect Russia match.

    Why is this match in fast-motion? It's kind of off-putting, still exciting though.

    I know, loses all the hand fighting, which i was really interested in seeing between these two, and doesn't have the second period clinch and the whole 3rd just repeats the first and second.

    I was going to update top 12 rankings after the Yarygin, but it's kind of pointless since most of the top guys haven't wrestled since worlds, so I'm going to attempt some rankings weight-by-weight. Since I am way too lazy to look up stats, this is based mostly on my opinion of who is the best rather than any set criteria.

    55 kg:
    This is a tough one for me. The defending world champ Lebedev lost handily to Yang at last year's Yarygin, and Yang lost to a sucked-down Mansurov at the Asian games. Doesn't feel right to rank the champ 3rd, but here goes:
    1: Masurov, Uzbekistan (Asian champ, 2x world champ at this weight, bronze medal at 60 kg)
    2: Yang, North Korea (Asian games champ, former World and Yarygin champ)
    3: Lebedev, Russia (world champion)
    4: Asgarov, Azerbayjan (world, jr world runner-up)
    5: Otarsultranov, Russia (Yarygin champ, former European champ)

    60 kg:
    1: Kudukhov, Russia (3x world champ, 2x medallist)
    2: Fedorishin, Ukraine (multiple world medallist- beat Sat but lost to Chakaev)
    3: Mohammedi, Iran (former world champ)
    4: Huseynov, Azerbayjan (2x world medallist)
    5: Sat, Russia (Yarygin, European champ)

    66 kg: This is a wierd one too, mostly because I believe that Garzon could have beaten Gogaev at this year's worlds and was paid not too. Of course, I can't prove this but it affects my rankings. I think Shahin is the most talented guy at this weight but he needs to get into shape and wrestle consistently again.
    1: Kumar, India (defending world, commonwealth champ. Olympic bronze)
    2: Hasanov, Azerbayjan (world bronze, European champ- lost 2x to Kumar, beat Garzon)
    3: Garzon, Cuba (multiple world medallist, Pan Am champ)
    4: Yonimitsu, Japan (Asian champ, Yarygin medallist, beat Taghavi)
    5: Gogaev, Russia (world silver medallist, jr. world champ)

    74 kg:
    1: Tsargush, Russia (2x world champ)
    2: Goudrazi, Iran (2x world medallist)
    3: Chamasurlaev, Azerbayjan (for now... hasn't been spectacular lately)
    4: Gotsiev, Russia (multiple international medallist, can't beat Tsargush)
    5: Fundora, Cuba (2x bronze medallist, beat Chama)

    84: I'm not ranking defending world champion Ganev right now, as he was recently stabbed and I don't know when he'll be wrestling again.
    1: Sokhiev, Uzbekistan (multiple world medallist, former world champ)
    2: Salas, Cuba (bronze medallist, Pan Am champ)
    3: Urishev, Russia (beat Aldatov last year. Any of the top Russians could have this spot really, but Urishev won the last Yarygin over the others)
    4: Aldatov, Ukraine (former world champ)
    5: Ktsoev, Russia (world bronze medallist)

    96: The toughest weight in the world right now IMO.
    1: Gayzumov, Azerbayjan (world champ, Fila's wrestler of the year)
    2: Gatsalov, Russia (5x world/olympic champ- assuming he isn't retired as some have suggested)
    3: Yazdani, Iran (Asian champ. beat Gogchelidze and Tigiev, won a round against Gatsalov but got hurt last year)
    4: Gogchelidze, Georgia (former world champ, many-time medallist)
    5: Akhmedov, Russia (Yarygin champ. Not sure who to put here but the top Russians are always great at this weight.)

    120 kg.
    1: Makhov, Russia (3x world champ)
    2: Taymazov, Uzbekistan (former multiple world, Olympic champ)
    3: Akhmedov, Russia (Olympic silver, Yarygin champ)
    4: Dlagnev, USA (former world bronze, many international medals)
    5: Azourmandis, Greece (2x world bronze)
