A lot has been said of the battle between Green and Khudayarov. Either way you look at it, it will be a huge collision course for both of them! That being said, as of late Khudayarov has been lifting some unbelievable weights almost unimaginable! Hows a 1014 training squat at somewhere under 260 grab you?

1752@197 without wraps went 6 for 9. Vid of all attempts, small error on 3rd bench coast me 10lb meet PR total. #2 ranked total in country in 198wt class. Not happy, but I have confidence I can hit 1800!! Thanks to everyone that supports me.
Here's recent footage of Orlando Green getting back to what he does best... deadlift!
"I haven't pulled heavy in a few months because of a couple nagging injuries. Today the stars were aligned perfect, so I decided to test it out. I only did 705lbs for 5reps, but It felt pretty good. Check out the stars floating in this video, it's like looking through the eyes of a beast!!!! When was the last time you've seen stars lol????"
"I became the lightest person in USAPL history to squat over 800 pounds raw no knee sleeves. I was very happy with my squat, I beat the open american squat record by 38 pounds. Definitely had little more in me with the squat. Now on deadlifts I was hoping for a close 800lbs dead, but opened nice and light so I could ensure that my squat record would count.
Matt Quinn hit 1870 @ 242 at the 10/25/14 SPF Irontoberfest! Matt went 705 in the squat, 465 bench and then pulled 700 to give him the 13th spot over all on the current raw/ wraps rankings!
