Dolgorsürengiin Sumyaabazar (Mongolian: Долгорсүрэнгийн Сумъяабазар, born 7 October 1974) is a Mongolian politician. Minister of mining and heavy industry of Mongolia. He was elected to the Parliament of Mongolia twice – in 2013 and 2016.[1] He was also a high-ranking Mongolian traditional wrestler, professional mixed martial artist, grappler and kickboxer who has fought for K-1 and New Japan Pro Wrestling.
