How may I ask is the USA the best in Freestyle wrestling, the last gold medal was Cejudo back in Beijing!
Going mainly by the # of medals overall not just the recent individual victories, as it tells more about the wrestling program overall not just the individual athletes. Never said USA has the best freestyle wrestlers right now anyway and that would be pretty irrelevant as I doubt any of them would train with Bisping anyway. I do think they have the best freestyle wrestling program, coaches and experience though.
Anyway USA is sitting at 108 medals out of 555 total medals won from freestyle which is pretty damn impressive. Like I said though Europe is superior at Greco-roman, Finland and Sweden for example have 58 and 56 medals from it while USA is at only 14, and we are talking about 2 countries with less than 10m people each. I wonder why greco isn't as popular in usa though... It is a shame really, because I think its better for mma than freestyle as you focus more on body control and clinch game than shooting which plays a key role in freestyle.
