White-trash honky-tonks please, as someone else pointed out there wasnt much sumo in that. He just fell on him a few times... and he was too big to get back up easily. Thats what lost him the fight. Actually the Gracie has some difficulties simply because so much weight was on him. But I didn't see the sumo do any of the standard sumo ****: slapping, pushing from a low stance, charging etc. So this aint the real sumo.... lets get a world reknowned sumo guy and see how theyd go... i think theyd have big problems fighting from the guard position because of the weight.

well apparently Akebono IS a world renowned sumo. but you coulda fooled me seeing as how all he does is wobble about the ring pushing people down and hitting them in the back of the head.

Wasn't Akebono a yokozuna (sumo grand champion)?
