Gadzhimura had taken the Iranian's leg and seemed to have leverage when Sadeghikoukandeh flipped himself over his opponents head and then grabbed control of his waist to score a take down, brining a little Lucha Libre-style flair to the amateur world

Doing a flip while no one is holding your leg and trying to wrestle you to the ground seems difficult enough, so it feels like Sadeghikoukandeh is just showing off by doing it here.
