    Sumo wrestlers don't submit, they only know how to apply forward pressure, that's about it. As long as Average Joe stays out of reach, he can easily run circles around him and strike at will.

    Considering the average sumo wrestler is at least 100 pounds heavier than the average joe I don't think it would be much of a contest.

    It depends on what they were doing!

    Sumo is as much an art form as a physical contest. It takes years to learn how to do it properly; it is as much a mind game as a physical contest. The "average joe" would not have the training for that part of it. Like, do you know why they throw salt before they begin? Little things like that.

    So, an average joe might be stronger or faster or whatever, but miss the nuances that make Sumo what it is.

    Average Joe, being average, is likely to lose. A sumo wrestler is a trained athlete.

    The average Joe would definately outrun the sumo wrestler.

    the sumo would eat the average joe. Sumo wrestling was originally a form of combat or martial arts that was turned into a combative sport.
