Mature male sea lions are like Sumo wrestlers in that they might be fat, but they are also heavily muscled and strong. In the case of the sea lions: the fat protects them from the severe bites they get from competing males.
I don't know about Sumo wrestlers, but with sea lions, all the girls like the winner- fat or not . Strong fathers means strong babies. And that means better chances for survival.
