    WTF of the Day: UFC 3 Vet Emmanuel Yarborough to Appear in Canadian Opera Production

    According to a Canadian Press article, the Canadian Opera Company has recruited behemoth American sumo wrestler and UFC 3 veteran Emmanuel Yarborough for it’s upcoming production of “Semele,” — a Greek tragedy.

    Yarborough will apparently take part in a three-minute staged sumo bout meant to signify “a love affair between the god Jupiter and the princess Semele that goes horribly awry when Semele sets her mind to become immortal,” says COC spokeswoman Maria Lioutaia.

    The 6’8″ 640-pound Guinness World Record holder who holds the distinction of being the largest professional athlete in the world answered a casting call sent out to sumo studios across North America. His “opponent” in the opera’s scene will be a Canadian named Elmer Gale, who said he has competed against Yarborough before in both disciplines.

    “I hit him with everything I got and I bounced right out of the [sumo] ring,” said Gale, 47, who weighs around 320 pounds. ”I got to fight him a few years earlier in a judo tournament in Colorado and at that time I happened to best him, I threw him — it was cool.”
