57kg 1/16: Tony Ramos (USA) goes on the shot clock first against Shavkatov (UZB). Ramos isn't able to score in :30 and goes down, 1-0. Shavkatov goes on the clock, and the score is tied when he can't score. Ramos holds criteria. A shot by Shavkatov forces Ramos out and he scores the step out point. A persistent barrage of attacks finally leads to a single that Ramos converts for a takedown.
