    Default Tied periods

    Who is better Lawal or Cormier?

    96 kg/211.5 lbs. Freestyle
    Daniel Cormier (Gator WC) dec. Mo Lawal (Gator WC), 1-0, 1-0

    First Period
    No scoring in first period

    Cormier takes clinch position
    At 2:05 takedown Cormier, 1-0

    Second Period
    No scoring in regulation

    Cormier takes clinch position
    At 2:06 takedown Cormier, 1-0


    I am not a big fan of the new rules, but by far the worst part is the way they decide tied periods. What is wrong with having a tied period?
    If after three periods the match is still tied, then go to some silly tiebreaker.
    I hope they can change this rule before the Olympics.
    I would hate to see a Olympic final decided 1-1, 1-1 where the champion wins two periods becasue of scoring last point. Or worse, seeing the posturing of trying to lock up a clinch.

    That damn leg clinch is a total crock of shit
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    Agreed. I have no stats, but it seems to me that the wrestler that gets to clinch the leg wins most of the time. It's a shame that it comes down to the flip of a coin.

    I think I would be more OK with the coin flip if they let the periods remain tied then after three periods if it is still tied do the coin flip / leg clinch thing or last point scored.

    I bet Mo agrees with you! It is a ridiculous set up. What kind of schmo CAN'T get a take down when give the leg? I know I'm biased, but I have no doubt that Mo will be on the world team this year, and the Olympic team next year.
