Any thoughts about this kimarite?

I have possibly the only sumo sculpture from the famous source of ceramic figurines, Lladro. It's called "Test of Strength" and I enjoy it very much. The photo I'm including is actually my avatar. I doubt if the people responsible for producing it knew very much about sumo and probably portrayed something they thought would be of interest.  It depicts the rikshi on the left using his right hand to apparently pull down on the front of his opponent's mawashi. That caused his opponent's knee to touch the ground.  

I've been trying to figure out which kimarite could be  depicted. The closest I can come up with is shitatehineri. Any other ideas?

Thanks. That's probably it. But I will continue to call it shitatehineri. The reason is that I want to own a sculpture that depicts a winning technique,  not a non-contact stumble by the loser.
