He did it!

The 51-year-old Baba Ramdev defeated Olympic champion Andriy Stadnik 12-0 (12 points to zero) in a friendly wrestling match at the start of the Pro Wrestling League season two on Wednesday.



The yoga guru displayed swiftness and technique on the mat as he grappled with the 2008 Beijing Olympic Silver medallist.


Ramdev did not allow the Ukrainian enough space to get an upper hand throughout their encounter. Stadnik is the same man who defeated wrestler Sushil Kumar in Beijing.

While the 34-year-old Stadnik wrestled in proper Olympic wrestling attire, Ramdev simply wore his saffron langot.

Every move that the Baba made was a pure delight to watch. So watch it and enjoy. (And pay attention to the commentary.)
