200 lb Judoka soaring in Sumo
While the UG is devoted to mixed martial arts, other sports events are of regularl interest, including the Mundials, ADCC World Championships, Div I Nationals for folkstyle, K-1 kickboxing, and others.
A curious other is Takanoyama Shuntaro (real name Pavel Bojar). At 6’1″ and just 200 pounds Bojar is one of the lightest competitors in modern sumo history, and relies on Judo to overcome sometimes enormous weight differences. Bojar is however well versed in Sumo, having spent over a decade in the discipline.
Makes you wonder how Ronda Rousey would do in Sumo?
