November 2015, Day 15, Tochiozan v Goeido

Goeido underperformed this tournament, waiting until the very last day to secure his eighth win and avoid the shame of kadoban (Ozeki probation) next tournament. He showed a few flashes of brilliance, but needs to be more consistent against the top of the division. Today against Tochiozan he starts with another harite (face slap at the tachi-ai), more for distraction than anything else, and when Tochiozan gets in close with a deep left-hand underhand grip, Goeido rotates into a tight headlock with his right arm, using it to throw Tochiozan down for the kubinage (headlock throw) win.
