But if Sumo involves this kind of throws, then they are probably from Sumo. Nic picture by the way^^

but come on I am not just one of the biggest Machida fans here, I am the biggest

ask me any question you want about him I am like his brother already^^
Sumo is virtually entirely about trips, throws and balance, no? All crucial skills for MMA.

Yes thats right

I just watched some Sumo vids on youtube, many are from the big belts those guys wear without the use of legs. But many are also from leg sweeps, not precisely how Lyoto does them but I guess he took them over from it and from his other Martial arts. Probably a combination of everthing!

C'mon guy you're one of the biggest Machida fans on the board, haha.



When Lyoto won a Sumo tournament. Says he was 8-1.

Haha that pic is funny. He does look a little out of place. I thought only fat guys could sumo!
