Summary

Russia’s Gaydar Mamedaliyev was the favorite, having won the 2003 World Cup and the 2002 World Championships. He performed well and made it to the final, where he met the unlikely István Majoros of Hungary. Majoros had never made the top 10 at a major international, but in the quarter-finals he upset the 2000 silver medalist, Cuba’s Lázaro Rivas. Majoros upset Mamedaliyev, winning at 6:08 of overtime. Majoros later briefly entered professional mixed martial arts, competing in one bout in Japan in 2006.
