Heydar Aliev Grand Prix: Men's Freestyle Medal Matches Live Video

USA TODAY Sports

One of the toughest wrestling tournaments in the world is going down right now in Azerbaijan, the Heydar Aliev Grand Prix. Bloody Elbow is here to bring you the live video.

Live, on location in Baku, Bloody Elbow's intrepid wrestling specialist Mike Riordan is reporting on the final installment of FILA's Golden Grand Prix Series for 2013- The Heydar Aliev Grand Prix.

J/K, J/K, I'm not really on location, but good morning anyways.

Because FILA is doing a much better job these days (and hiring skilled writers), we have the pleasure of a nice  video stream for one of the world's premier wrestling tournaments.

The medal matches begin at 8 a.m. (EST).

Two Americans will wrestle for Bronze medals. At 66kg, former University of Illinois All-American Jimmy Kennedy, and Kyle Dake at 74kg. For those who don't recall, Dake is the wrestler from Cornell University who won four NCAA titles at four weights. Earlier in this very tournament, Dake beat two-time world champion and Olympic bronze medalist Denis Tsargush of Russia. Unfortunately, Dake appeared to hurt his hand/wrist in the match, and he submitted to this injury in the following match. We will see if he takes the mat for his next match.

The most notable match we will see will occur at 96kg. Here two Azerbaijanis will square off as Sharif Sharifov, world and Olympic champ a weight below, will take on Khetag Gayzumov, world champion and Olympic bronze medalist.

Without delay: the video, which as it turns out isn't embed capable
