Bison Sumo Showdown: 4,000 Pounds of American Bison Engage in Mesmerizing ‘Sumo Wrasslin’ Spectacle at Yellowstone National Park

There’s nothing like taking a trip out to Yellowstone National Park with the family and spending some time in the great outdoors.

Breathe the fresh air, take in the gorgeous sights, and watch 4,000 pounds of pure American muscle battle it out on a road, what else could you want? As we’ve seen time and time again, bison don’t always pick the best place to pick a fight and often find themselves holding up traffic on a road while tourists line up to get a picture or video of the epic encounter.

Of course this is why many people make the pilgrimage to one of America’s most iconic places, but way to often tourists find themselves in harms way by, well, being quite dumb.

Like this guy who got thrown into a tree, or this woman who fell flat on her face running away from a charging bison…

Yeah, people can be pretty stupid.

Fortunately in this video, everyone stayed clear of the brawling bison and we were able to get a great view of two majestic beasts throwing horns. Right from the jump it appeared one of the animals had the upper-hand, pushing the other around and forcing him off to the right side of the road. They remained locked up for awhile and the guy taking the video hit us with a comment out of no where that gave me a good laugh

“It’s like sumo wrasslin”

But as I was laughing from his comment, the bison that was on the defensive the whole time found some leverage and began pushing the winner to that point clear across the road, hooves skidding on the asphalt in a last ditch effort to hold position.

Alas, it was to no avail and the upset was completed with the winner claiming the road as his own and the loser left to pant in the brush alone. As the video ends, we see the champion going off to a herd down the road, presumable the new leader of the pack.

Absolutely awesome stuff is always coming out of Yellowstone. It truly is a magical place.
