I remember one more rikishi who lost to a yokozuna (I don't remember which Y it was) but was voted into the top 3 spirited rikishis: Ura.

Kitataiki was also voted most spirited rikishi of the day in the NSK popularity poll, though he qualifies as a "grey" rikishi (but the home boy), before Goeido and Ikioi.

In juryo Satoyama was first, but Jokoryo in spite of losing was 2nd.
