65kg- Tulga Tumur-Ochir VPO1 Yianni Diakomihalis 10-3

The Tumur-Ochir win is not too surprising as a lot of people would have had him as the favorite here but a 10-3 win shows that he will be back in the hunt for a world title after being close in 2021.

70kg- Tyler Berger VSU Munkhtulga Zuunbayan 10-0

Good win from Berger here just showing pure dominance and taking care of business.

74kg- Sumiyabazar Zandanbud VPO Vincenze Joseph 4-0

This is one of the situations with Mongolia’s weaker wrestlers where if he wrestle Jason Nolf it is probably a win but the dual looks to be all but looked up at this point.

79kg- Jordan Burroughs VSU Temuujin Mendbileg 10-0

Jordan Burroughs taking care of business picking up the tech in about a minute.

86kg- Zahid Valencia VSU Bat Bayasgalan

Zahid takes care of business with a 30 second 10-0 tech and it just looks like an outmatch at 86kg along with 79kg having Burroughs there.

92kg- Nate Jackson VFO Mongolia

97kg- Kyle Snyder VFO Mongolia

125kg- Lkhagvagerel Munkhtur VPO1 Zillmer 3-1

A win is a win here but Munkhtur did not look to be able to produce any offense here which has proved to be a problem for him in a big matches. Coming into the scene as another younger heavyweight phenom he will have his work cut out for him.
