    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Maybe weight classes aren't all that important after all...

    Sure. Posting a video/pic followed only by the word discuss is what the powers that be around here refer to as a low content thread. They're none too keen on them either.

    Ignoring the fact that this video already appears in one on Holy Moment's David v Goliath threads (amongst others), what do YOU think about this video? Does it undermine the point of weight classes in your opinion? What is it about this fight that you thought needed to be brought to our attention?

    People do realise when you fight you also are matched up with someone who has about the same skill level.

    Best part about many of those old Pride fights is Bas's commentary, especially the parts done after the fact.

    Sumo generally has a crappy record in old MMA (note this vid is many years old, when people loved freakshow fights). This one, where Yarborough is beaten by a small guy, or when he was beaten by Keith Hackney, or when Akibono was beaten by Royce Gracie, or when Koji Kitao got punched in the face once and quit due to broken nose, or when Genki Sudo beat Butterbean (not really a sumo guy, but still). To infer that weight classes aren't important is only a tiny part of the picture. One could just as easily note that the sumo guys (and one huge boxer) trained in a discipline that WASN'T MMA. They were not trained to deal with grappling on the ground, or with an opponent who could punch, kick and knee them.

    I feel there's also a point of diminishing returns when it comes to being huge. Size is an asset, until it starts being a hindrance. 700lbs is huge even for a sumo wrestler.

    You are completely right. I posted this around 1am, when I found the video and almost split my sides laughing.

    Holy effin' crap that's one bigass opponent. But the little guy squirmed out of his grip. Too funny.
