Seeing  how Wrestling is one of the most popular bases in MMA, i thought that it would be goof if i started a thread that  would allow for people to understand and follow the storylines and techniques at the highest level collegiate and international level competition.  I will create a Ranking system and give scouting reports of the top 10 guys at each weight class and provide updated weekly rankings every Monday. The first event i'm covering is NWCA National dual finals between Iowa and Missouri.

Review of the Turkish Qualifier.

Unfortunately Frank Molinaro was unable to qualify 65 KG for the United States, so we will not be sending anyone at 65 KG to Rio. But for those interested in MMA, 5-0 prospect Alexey Krupnyakov made the semis at 120 KG, but failed to qualify. For those wondering why he isn't fighting anymore it's because his doping suspension was lifted.  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cTJNIn85U6hjAUKNkyMF0i6bpKc8rKX4FLF73jdEuro/edit

Patrick Cummins:  Originally a walk on to the Penn State wrestling team after never having placed in the Pennsylvania State Tournament, and through his first two seasons he did not yield spectacular results, but come his junior season he truly began to flourish placing fourth 285 as the seventh seed, and the next year he continued his success his senior year beating 2x national champ, 2005 University world champ, and 2007 world fifth place finisher at 120 KG Tommy Rowlands in an early season dual, and carried the #1 ranking in the country to the National tournament where he would lose to Rowlands in  the finals. Cummins would go on to drop to the 96 KG weight class after college and won the 2010 U.S. Open and  made the world team trials finals in 2010 losing to 2011 world bronze medallist and 2012 Olympic champion Jake Varner which would ultimately be the end of his competitive wrestling career.
