Sayles is almost like a mini-Barbarena. Hopefully he goes back into the gym and learns some defensive wrestling.

You've never seen nor will you ever see a Penn State wrestler with somebody on their back...Why? 


Its not because they're doing stuff different or applying things unknown..but because escaping backmount is extremely easy.

Why the f*ck is Nordine smiling? Either viciously finish your opponent or die trying. Why are you having fun?
