    I've seen it been scored like what you have said, and i've seen it scored 3 red, 2 blue, and i've seen it scored as it was today, but thats usually when blue is held on his back, like with amini vs ktsoev.

    hmm i wanted to see lash in the finals.

    84 espinal wrestled at the recent german grand prix (where gomez beat kuduhov). he placed 3rd there, lost to saritov but scored a 3pt throw in that match.

    First time i watched Besik vs Iran i thought the iranian got screwed. But after watching the replay i think the right call was made.

    Kudukov forced him out of bounds with the front headlock (irans knee and arm were completely out of bounds while besik was still out of bounds) then the action continued and looked like iran kind of came out on top, which was irrelevant because he had already been pushed out.

    As for the challenge. Of course they didn't let Iran challenge at the end of the period. You have to throw in the brick right after the call in question occurs.

    I have no issues with the way that match was called

    Maybe download hotspot sheild, it helps me when i watch american broadcast, then go on bbc they covered 120 all day, over under suplex makhov to his back as makhov was looking for a pushout, makhov looked pinned as well they tried challenging for a pin but they said it was too late.

    So I guess he trains at the Nittany Lion wrestling club. Cody Sanderson was in his corner. He threw an awesome leg lace throw for five.

    i cant watch bbc (geo-blocked). i am watching eurovision - they covered 60 and 84 on 2 mats; no 120-kg matches.
