Travis Stevens has won 3 matches by ippon to make it to the finals in -81 kg ! I believe all 3 were won via ne waza.

And yes, Rayce, he is a BJJ black belt (in 18 months, no less) as well, LOL!

His guard pass to ippon pin was very nice.

LOL at the Bulgarian looking for the ref stand-up half way through an over-under pass.

Unfortunately not so much for Antoine Valois-Fortier. He lost to the Russian in the quarters and then had to face Nagase in the repechage. That's 0 for 3 head to head against him for Antoine. I was surprised to see Nagase lose in the quarters as well, but I didn't see the matches.

Spoiler: Stevens lost by ippon in Golden Score to the same Russian who took out my boy Antoine in the quarters.

It wasn't in Golden Score, I was mixed up. It was halfway through regular time.

No better than blue belt level, of course, and a simple pass at that...

Antoine is a great guy, that's too bad.

Wow, some people were arguing on the judo subreddit that this throw started too low, but if that still is any indication Stevens is about to get pasted.

Here is a link to a photo sequence on the IJF webpage. I'm assuming it's the same throw that started with the photo I posted. If so, Travis managed to go to one knee, then get rolled over. I'd guess waza ari.

In any case, he is totally out-gripped and locked up in the picture I posted.

"The Gold Medal Match between Stevens and Khalmurzaev featured plenty of activity, with Stevens trying hard to apply a hold when the judokas entered into newaza. But ultimately it was a counter from Khalmurzaev that put Stevens on his back for an ippon and ended the match."
