No Dudaev also beat him in the finals of Russian Nationals that year. In fact Dudaev won the first period after losing the coin toss on the clinch (giving up the leg). Dudaev went on to win the Worlds.
Dudaev is a master of keeping his elbows real tight to his side which is a key to his defense. I taped a match of him wrestling Jesse Jantzen where he hits one of his patented chest locks. Jantzen actually gave him a good go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBk_46en_zI&feature=PlayList&p=C17B17D567AEA286&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=41
After that match - more Dudaev!My vote for next week is Dudaev v. Mourad Umakhanov, 2004 Russian NationalsThere are Cadet & Junior level athletes that I know studying and practicing the techniques they see in these matches and throwing around the names of these international all-time greats. Thanks for sharing Craig and showing these young men and their coaches the best of the best!I look forward to Thursday every week!
how bout some international cael? anybody ever give cael a fight? i've seen his gold medal match but did anyone almost beat cael before it?
I'd like to see all of them but would like to see Barry Davis and Charlie Heard. Heard was from Georgia as I am and I never got to see him wrestle in his prime.
I chose this match because there aren't too many out there with Batirov losing. This is a great match with a lot of action in the second period. The first period was just ok. Dudaev's defense is unreal.Anyway, I was debating between this match and:M. Murtazaliev v. I. Farniev, 2004 Russian National FinalsS. Sajidov v. C. Sanderson, 2004 Yarygin FinalsDudaev v. Mourad Umakhanov, 2004 Russian NationalsBarry Davis v. Charlie Heard, 1988 US Olympic Trials.Alexander Leipold v. Alberto Hernandez, 1991 World ChampionshipsLet me know if you guys are interested in any of these for next week.Craig
