You think Khabib Nurmagomedov can grapple? His technique pales in comparison to the Geomyidae family.
That’s right. The entire wrestling tradition of Dagestan would get school by the natural ferocity of gophers. Don’t believe me? Check out this bus driver who found some gophers on the side of the road engaged in a grappling war that puts the NCAA wrestling tourney to shame.
As an unbiased judge of this fight, I’d give the gopher on the right the win via aggression, forward movement, and that moment when he jerked his opponent’s face back with a stiff arm.
Someone get that gopher to AKA and sign him to Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series.
