    I just sort of thought of this when i was replying.

    Looking at their weights now i do see the disparity is larger.

    Yep imo people get a false perception of Sumo because no elite sumo in his prime makes the move to mma. A 250-300 pound japanese elite Sumo wrestler has nearly unmatched balance, strenght, and toughness with otherworldly grip strenght, world class infight clinch game and quite a good cardio + fast accleration.
    Thinking about that these guys would learn submission grappling. Oh my <Eek2.0>

    Only strategy I would think of is keep the fight standing as long as possible.

    No one questions the athleticism of an NFL level offensive lineman. Sumo is basically where these guys wind up in Japan. They're not dudes you'd want to fuck with.
