This match will not be for the World Title but to me it is as interesting as Andrey Pushkar vs Dmitry Trubin World Title Armfight. These two athletes met years ago at the Arnold Classic. Neither of them were as their best ever shape but stil Denis Cyplenkov was the clear favorite at that event. Something surprising happenned and Michael beat Denis on that day at the A side after a very tough battle. Most likely Denis did not have any experience about the way that Michael pulled and he was not able to finish him. He got tired and Michael just finished him with a dead wrist as far as i remember. Since the Arnolds is a two day event they pulled their final match on next day and Denis was able to beat Michael twice to win the event. I remember Michael was saying that the way that he pulls puts so much stress on his arms and once his arm is cold he can not perform as good anymore. He explained his loss against Denis on that day.
Since that time Michael became much better in what he is doing and it became very very hard to beat him in his game. Recently he lost against Trubin but Trubin had everything that someone needs to beat Michael Todd and still it was a very very hard Armfight. What i realised on that day was that if you want to beat Michael then you must have the right skills, intelligence, so much power, a big heart and you must not make ANY mistake. Michael may lose but for sure he makes you pay the price and for sure he does not miss any mistake of his opponent. I am not a fan of his pulling style but i accept that it is a huge challenge to defeat him.
