Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: 200-Pound Judo Player Destroys Group of Hopeless Fat-Bodies in Sumo Tournament

(Props: NYCulturalPhysician via RedditMMA)

The athletic gaijin in the video above is Pavel Bojar (aka Takanoyama Shuntaro), a Czech sumo wrestler who has worked his way into Japan’s top Makuuchi division, despite being one of the lightest competitors in modern sumo history. At 6’1″ and just 200 pounds, Bojar relies on his judo background to make up for the tremendous weight disadvantages he generally faces, employing a slick arsenal of throws and trips, rather than just bull-rushing his opponents out of the ring. Watch the above video to see how far a little bit of actual grappling talent can get you in this weird sport. Look, I’m not trying to crack on the rich history of Japanese sumo wrestling, but for God’s sake, check out the tits on the guy at the 1:52 mark, who had just finished falling out of the ring like a moron. This is an athlete? Ronda Rousey would ruin half of these guys.

this guy is a tier 2 sumo wrestler. he can win most of those but when he moves up to the first level (of 5) of tier 1, he gets dominated. Asashoryu would make him his bitch

Anyway, audience seems to like and appreciate his skills.
He is a Sumo Wrestler. Just because he isn't fat doesn't mean he's not a Sumo Wrestler.

And I'm pretty sure Ronda could blow these guys away but what does that have to do with anything?

Technique>Size, take away the weight classes for a night and see who is truly the best.

Mongrel is the only one who makes sense. I love people on the internet going, "Look see? Fat People are terrible! They make me soo mad arghghg! Do they even lift?"

Dude is good and undersized, always make cool highlights, but however wrote this is an ass. I love this site but every once in a while I look and go, he couldn't have spent the 8 seconds to read his own link to the factual information contained therein?

"Watch the above video to see how far a little bit of actual grappling talent can get you in this weird sport."

Bullshit. You sound like boxers commentating on MMA with a highlight video of The Irish Hand grenade and saying, oh wow look at what just a little boxing skill can do for you in this whacky sport.

And half those guys would, in return, ruin Ronda Rousey, assuming she told them what hotel she was staying at.

Talking about surprising fighters, have you seen this?

If I could only hire one guy to guard my donut that would be the guy.

I have used some of these same techniques to deflect sloppy fat drunk bitches.

So what, I'm 5'1" 195lbs and I just pick those fat bastards up and throw them out of the ring.

If you actually took the 2 minutes to read into his Wiki profile like I did, you'd know that he's actually not that great... that's just a highlight-reel of his wins, it doesn't mention how he lost 5 in a row.

Still though, cool video.

It really is just showing the degeneration of sumo I think. I mean, I used to actually watch sumo years ago when I could, and youd see some o fthe big fucks hip throwing ech other and stuff - now they roll like E. Honda and just try to bumrush and palm strike the other guy out of the ring. No doubt this guy is really good though.
