World Clubs Cup Rosters Released

Tony Rotundo

Can I interest you in battles between Abdulrashid Sadulaev and J'Den Cox, as well as Kyle Dake and Aniuar Geduev?

Those dream matchups and more could happen at the fourth annual World Wrestling Clubs Cup, making it perhaps the biggest and most intriguing iteration of the event to date. This year's edition will be December 7th and in Tehran.

It will be Geduev's first action since beating Jordan Burroughs en route to a silver medal at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

Sadulaev will be down at 92kg, and along with Cox this will be his first competition since this year's world championships in Paris.

Titan Mercury are the defending champs and have made the finals all three years of the event's existence.

Also on the roster for Titan Mercury is world and Olympic champ Kyle Snyder, who last year at this event actually lost twice. Check out TMWC's roster, as well as that of Bimeh Razi, who won the first two Clubs Cups and lost in the finals to TMWC last year.

Get Pumped For Final X Lehigh

On Saturday evening, the third installment of Final X takes the stage. Six world team series, as well as a handful of true third matchups, will take place at historic Grace Hall on the campus of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA.

Tech Notes: Haley Augello vs. Sarah Hildebrandt

Tony Rotundo
Final X Lehigh Hype

Sarah Hildebrandt will obviously make adjustments to how she wrestles Haley Augello this time around. Hildebrandt may own a victory over Augello from their 53kg finals bout at the U.S. Open back in April, but winning a match doesn’t always equate to a perfect performance. 

Tech Notes: Victoria Anthony vs. Whitney Conder

Final X Lehigh Hype

Whitney Conder punched her ticket to Final X Lehigh by taking out Victoria Anthony in the finals of the U.S. Open, and now they will go at it once again in the best-of-three series for the 50kg spot on the world team this Saturday at Grace Hall in Bethlehem, PA.
