Men's freestyle 120 kg competition at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China, was held on 21 August at the China Agricultural University Gymnasium.

This freestyle wrestling competition consists of a single-elimination tournament, with a repechage used to determine the winner of two bronze medals. The two finalists face off for gold and silver medals. Each wrestler who loses to one of the two finalists moves into the repechage, culminating in a pair of bronze medal matches featuring the semifinal losers each facing the remaining repechage opponent from their half of the bracket.

Each bout consists of up to three rounds, lasting two minutes apiece. The wrestler who scores more points in each round is the winner of that rounds; the bout ends when one wrestler has won two rounds (and thus the match).

On 5 April 2017 Artur Taymazov of Uzbekistan has been stripped off the 2008 Olympic gold medal due to a positive test for doping.[1]
