Dolgorsürengiin "Slippery" Sumiyaabazar (Mongolian: Долгорсүрэнгийн Сумьяабазар) is a high-ranking Mongolian traditional wrestler, former professional mixed martial artist, grappler, and kickboxer who has fought for K-1 and New Japan Pro Wrestling.
On July 13, 2006, Sumiyaabazar became the grand champion of Mongolian wrestling during the annual Naadam festival held in Ulaanbaatar. He came out first of 1024 contestants (10 tournament rounds). Prior to 2006, Sumiyaabazar finished in 2nd place on four occasions.
Between 2003 and 2006, he competed in three mixed martial arts bouts, losing two and winning one. Perhaps his most famous fight was against American football player Bob Sapp at K-1 Beast 2004 in Niigata.
His younger brothers Dolgorsürengiin Serjbüdee, and Dolgorsürengiin Dagvadorj are also both skilled wrestlers. However, they are now participating in different types of wrestling in Japan.
