I added a working link for the PDF file with the research thesis in it referred to by the article.Kozushi (talk) 06:08, 2 April 2017 (UTC)


I can't find any citation for "Killa Milla", nor any fight stats for him on UFC or Sherdog websites. Who is he, how is he involved in the UFC, and why is that relevant to his expertise on ancient greek wrestling?Hexrei 18:49, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

It seems to me that the statement "outside of each other’s touching-range" in the rules of ancient Greek wrestling needs explaining as touching range has not been mentioned before. Touching what?, one's opponent? If it means that they must start in the centre of the wrestling area but not close enough to each other to be able to touch each other, it could be more succinctly phrasedAndrenapier (talk) 17:51, 15 December 2009 (UTC)andrenapier

It says that this is a current Olympic sport (or at least that's how I interpreted the "Olympic sport? Yes" table). Could we get a description/rules etc on how it's done today? Or if it's no different an indication of that? (talk) 10:08, 1 August 2012 (UTC)


Oddly the Simple version of this article is bigger and more complex. Ought they be swapped?

Discrepancy in statements of scoring[edit]

Currently the lead says

A point was scored when one player touched the ground with his back, hip or shoulder,....

But the section Rules says

A point can be scored in any of three ways: the opponent’s back touching the ground at any time,...

with no mention of a point for the opponent's hip or shoulder touching the ground. This discrepancy needs to be cleared up. Loraof (talk) 22:43, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Female referees?![edit]

The section Rules says

The referee can at any time stop the match if s/he believes a point has been scored.

The wording s/he implies that some of the referees were female. I find that hard to believe. If none were female, s/he should be changed to he. Loraof (talk) 22:48, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
