Mas Wrestling: OB & Odd Headed to Dubai

Also known as stick wrestling, mas wrestling begins with two competitors squaring off, feet braced against a board and holding a stick, as each tries to pull the other out of position. 

The event was an instant hit in Los Angeles and since then, Odd Haugen formed MAS USA to develop the sport in the United States,—allowing top competitors to qualify for and compete in international mas wrestling events.

Both Haugen and Oberst have significant credentials in strongman, with Oberst, for example, making it to the finals in this year’s World’s Strongest Man contest.  Haugen, now in his seventh decade, remains a world class competitor in grip strength contests as well.
