His name…is Rasul. His passion…is DANCE.

The video above was captured earlier this week at the Summer Universiade athletic competition in Kazan, Russia, where Azerbaijani wrestler Rasul Chunayev defeated his Russian opponent Islam-Beka Albiev for the 66-kg gold-medal in Greco-Roman wrestling. And my goodness, what an excited young man. MMA victory dancers, it’s time to step up your game.

After the jump: Meanwhile in the 60-kg division, Russian wrestler Bekkhan Goygereev┬ápulls off one of the most incredible escapes you’ll ever see.

Baby Boo and Big Loke can't be too pleased with Raz Dog's C-Walk. I mean, we know he's Russian but c'mon now, playa. For one, he didn't flash his set. Two, his gangsta boogie looked more like a twinkletoe two-step. Three, he shook the ref's hand after as opposed to cracking him upside the head. That's not how you represent.

It looks like if Michael Flatley were to crip walk. That dude is definitely Lord of the Dance!

The second video is technically a takedown, not an escape. You have to be taken down first in order to score an escape. Badass move regardless.

This is what happens when wrestling gets cut from the Olympics. They turn to rythmic gymnastics.
