    I've rewatched it multiple times in slowmotion, and if it's a henka, then it's a pretty light one. Yes, he twisted his body, but it was far from a blatant jump to the left. We've seen him do worse. Whatever, i'm glad he won. He and Hoshoryu will be the next Ozekis.

    So what? There's solid contact, both feet on the ground. Mid-air looks different.

    GOLD macaron.

    That's a valid point. If Takakeisho wins the basho with Hoshoryu or Wakatakakage churning out a 13-2 at the same time for a Ozeki-promotion, it could still happen, but that's highly unlikely.

    A yusho next basho? Yes. This playoff? Depends on how desperate they are for a new Yokozuna.

    ABI YUSHO! What a crazy ending.

    BOOM! And another FFS! I hope Takayasu is not injured too bad.

    Oh FFS!

    Takakeisho still needs to win for that to happen. I wouldn't bet a single dime on him. He lost the last 4 to Wakatakakage.

    YES! Advantage Abi.

    Is Nishikifuji "Well Dressed Mt. Fuji"?

    I'll stick with the franco-japanese version of Aminishiki: Friend well dressed.

    YAY, Ura KK! Oho needs to learn some tawara-dancing. He handed this to Ura.

    If Takayasu forces a play-off, they'll have at least some time to compose themselves for the grand finale.

    I wish there were a bunch of older, experienced, well respected sumotori in the lower ranks, which couldn't make it to the top, perhaps due to injury, but who are still capable to go Denzel Washington once in a while. Don't push him out, don't slap him down, just keep him in the ring and give his face a massage, until he bends the knee.

    I don't know if anyone knows, but it's the only way to explain what's going on with him since 05/22. This isn't even Mitakeumi B, he's C or D right now. Going from 11-4, 13-2Y and 11-4 to 6-9, 2-5-8 and 3-8 is not a normal decline in form for a 29y-old sumotori. EDIT: I see your question has already been answered.

    Aaand Mitakeumi's Ozeki tenure is over. I hope he get's rid of that injury, which is obviously hampering him, to rebounce next basho.

    Yeah, i hope Ura's knees hold, so we'll have a long "feud" for the title of who's the no.1 little, wily, leg grabbing annoyance on the dohyo.
