Nice win by Sudario, he’s definitely the most comfortable looking sumo crossover on the feet so far. Would like to see more of his ground game. I feel like the Ota fight was a missed opportunity, should’ve put him against someone less experienced for his debut before throwing him Tokoro. Now your potential prospect starts his career with a loss.

With little research i picked Ota, knowing he was the gold medalist, his opponent, however was a very tough stylistic matchup. Veteran with crafty and sneaky grappling
