The Senior Freestyle Wrestling World Cup was held in Los Angeles, the United States of America. Besides Azerbaijan, the national teams of Russia, Cuba, the USA, Mongolia, Iran, Belarus and Turkey also participated at the championship.

According to the draw, the Azerbaijani wrestlers competed against Iran, Belarus and Turkey in group B, whereas the Russia, Cuban, American and Mongolian teams wrestled against one another in group A.

Our wrestlers scored a 7:1 victory against the Turkish team in the first round, and then won against Belarus with the score 6:2. Our sportsmen held the last bouts within the group against the Iranian team. Having lost after a very intense bout, our national team ranked second in the group. Thus, our wrestlers had to fight against the second place holder of the other group, the Russian team, for the third place. Despite a 4:4 tie in the decisive round, our team scored more points than the Russian wrestlers, ranked third in the World Cup and became the bronze owners.

The Freestyle Wrestling World Cup competitions have been held since 1973. Our freestyle wrestlers have won the World Cup twice (2004 and 2009) so far. They ranked second in 2012 and came in third in 2010, 2011 and 2015.
