    Wow! What a match! What an inspiration! I almost got teary eyed watching that one!

    I thought Murtazaliev looked very tired. Saitiev went after him the entire match.

    Fadzaev will always have a place in my heart but man that Saitiev is something special.

    Did it look like Saitiev broke exposure in the second period?

    I like how the screen says "legend" in Russian as Saitiev walks by. I know its an ad for something but I thought that was pretty cool.

    I was thinking the same thing when I saw it, but my guess is that, like Ichiro, Saitiev gets all of the close calls.

    Saitiev went Iowa style on Murtazaliev. A mixture of Brands, Sanderson and Saitiev's technique all in one person. All takedowns by Saitiev. No attempts at exposure.

    No exposure because you have to be on your elbows. Saitiev was on his hands.

    That's what I was thinking. One point for either the hand-to-hand exposure or the takedown, not both.

    Man that was a great match. In Murta-Saitiev 1 (one of my favorite matches) I thought Saitiev looked old and slow. Now it looks like some training has fixed all that; he actually outscrambled Murta, and went after him the entire match.
