There is no place five-time world champion Jordan Burroughs enjoys competing more than wrestling-crazed Iran. The passion of the fans and level of competition is unmatched anywhere in the world. So you can imagine his concern this weekend when the Iranian Foreign Ministry responded to Donald Trump's immigration ban by saying it would not allow to Americans to enter Iran indefinitely.

Burroughs and a handful of other Americans are scheduled to leave Feb. 8 for a World Cup tournament in Kermanshah, Iran.
