    The dehydration situation is really disappointing, pretty much the same as not making weight and going into the games, I believe he was our highest ranked wrestler.

    Not sure what time weigh ins are relative to matches, but with the UFC, you weigh in like 30 hours before a match and I think MMA guys cut more weight than wrestlers.

    So a chance at an Olympic medal was not motivation enough?

    My point exactly, I would guess he is way north of 230, so why not go Heavy? He has proven that he is not good at weight management. Focus on something that he can be good at.

    Olympics weigh-ins were the day before. I believe that there are MMA guys who are doing more weght-cutting than most wrestlers. With the weigh-in the day before, I believe it is only a matter of time before we see some deaths due to weight cutting, similar to what we had in wrestling about 10 years ago.

    thanks - I figured it was only hours before.

    He's beaten Mocco, so I imagine he can wrestle at least at the level as the big Hwts in MMA

    Yea i heard cormier was between 245-250. He seems to have enough body fat to make it to 205 but i dont know if we will consistently see him at that weight.

    Damn, closer to the Hwt max than LWT - but I guess he can make it with the big guys. This might be Hahn's chance to be on the national team for a few years.

    Hahn will have a chance, but I believe Varner will have the spot locked up for a while now.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I have no idea. He got 2nd in the last olympic tryouts, right? Maybe this will inspire him to go for another run. The Cormier situation in the last olympics really was disappointing, mitigated by Cejudo's awesome run.

    VAis - I don't see Varner beating Hahn, have they wrestled before? Are you trying to earn points with Adolf?

    If Varner was 184 this year, he would have gotten 3rd.

    Cormier would be a small, (fat) heavyweight. He would be hard pressed to compete with the giants who are legitimately near the 265 pound weight limit, (Lesnar, Carwin, etc.). At 205, he would be a threat to anyone, especially if he really focused on his cross training. I guess time will tell. I'm hoping to not see a repeat of a Ghaffari-esque physique in the heavyweight division by a decorated American wrestler.
