Haha quality. That other guy wasn't small by any means & Overeem just towered him.

Swatted him like a fly!

I've heard that rankings of sumo wrestlers in Japan are messed with and predetermined, or somehow fixed.

his opponents don't look like real sumos. I'm guessing not a real sumo competition. But still a great way to prepare for Lesnar.

Not quite how that works. To go up a level in Sumo, you have to win a certain amount of bouts (in one tournament). Say you need 8 wins out of 14 matches to go up the level, you don't need the other 6 wins. So if you face someone who needs the win when you don't, you'll usually let them win.

It was focused on in the documentary Freakanomics.

They were both 90 KG which is around 195 Lbs and he pushed them like *****es., He is 120 KG which is a lot more than them both.

He needs to face 120 KG Guys tbh.
