Hey Bert, were you in V. Tarnovo last weekend? I watched the match of Jordan vs. Aydin the Screwdriver on video. Unfortunately it didn't highlight what happened in the fighters' corners, so I couldn't see whether you were there.
The other 8 matches in the Chechnya v USA dual
Zelimkhan Kutsaev (fila: Kutseev) v Matt Azevedo
Bekkhan Goygereev v Henry Cejudo
Apti Gusigov v Cliff Moore
Magomed Djukaev v. Brent Metcalf
Ali Denilhanov v. Joe Heskett
Anzor Boltukaev v. Clint Wattenberg
Rustam Agaev v. Damion Hahn
Magomed Umarov v. Andy Patrick
55 kg Cejudo bout -- holy crap what a throw!!!
Who won that bout?
Please post scores if you have them. Thanks akzent.
I love this chechen style of wrestling.
Short after the Chechnya-USA dual another dual was held: Russia v USA
55 kg Labazan Askerbiev v Henry Sejudo
55 kg Jamal Otarsultanov v Matt Azevedo
60 kg Mavlet Batirov v Cliff Moore
66 kg Irbek Farniev v Brent Metcalf
74 (or 66?) kg Chamsulvar Chamsulvaraev v Jared Lawrence
74 kg Albert Saritov v Joe Heskett (Heskett won the Chechnya president?s prize of 20.000 $ for this victory over the president?s favorite)
84 kg Murad Koitemirov v Clint Wattenberg
96 kg Rustam Agaev v Damion Hahn (rematch; they met earlier in the Chechnya v USA dual)
120 kg Oleg Khorpiakov v Andy Patrick
Awards ? envelops instead of medals for everybody . A winner got 3.000 $ for a victory (i.e. some of them got it double for winning in both duals). Lost matches were paid 1.000.
In this video:
1. The US team geting envelops.
2. Joe Heskett was named the outstanding foreign wrestler for winning the matches vs Chechen wrestlers in both the Chechnya-USA dual and the Russia-USA dual. Chechnya president Kadirov personally gives him another envelop containing 20.000 $.
3. Wrestlers of the Chechen & Russian teams getting the money.
4. President Kadirov awarding the outstanding Chechen wrestler Anzor Boltukaev ? the black car which can be seen near the mat. It is a Volkswagen Touareg (55.000 $)
5. The spectators cheering Boltukaev to dance the Caucasian dance Lezginka on the mat.
Caucasian wrestlers often round off competitions with Lezginka dance. Here the performances of Irbek Farniev and Mavlet Batirov after the Umakhanov tourney:
Last minute in this tape: the US team posing with Chechen guns.

quick, its called "Obviv" in Russian or the wrap around which refers to the thrower wrapping his leg around his opponent’s leg. I actually used that throw many times in high school, especially when I was losing late in a match. I would just come in and go for it. My opponents didn’t know what hit them. I pinned Shad Benton with that move at Northeast regionals in 95 and he ended up 6th at Junior Nationals that year and won DIIs in college. I also threw my opponent in NYS freestyle finals. I was losing 4:3 and won 6:4 throwing him with 2 seconds left. Ah what memories.
They don’t teach you these throws in America. Benton and I were both at Penn State for a year. A couple of guys asked him how I beat him. He said he was winning and all of a sudden Eugene hit some funky move and pinned him.
