The defensive player gets points by getting himself out of bounds while the offensive player is in-bounds. Like every other part of wrestling, that is greatly effected by mobility. And who is more mobile, the guy on one leg or two? Or scoring a fall. Who is easier to topple, the man on one leg or two? This guy does have an edge in upper-body strength, but not having a leg is a serious-enough disadvantage that anyone complaining about how easy having three limbs makes things is pretty much an idiot that should never speak again.

^ Exactly. Also, there is no way he can shoot with only 1 leg, which is probably the most basic move in wrestling. The NCAA finals match was amazing, especially the way he got his takedowns and back points.
