November 2016, Day 2, Endo v Terunofuji

I don’t know if Endo watched the tape of yesterday’s Yoshikaze/Terunofuji bout to prepare for today, but he defeats the Ozeki with almost the exact same strategy. It takes him a bit longer, and he doesn’t actually lift Terunofuji off the ground, but there are some strong parallels between both matchups. Terunofuji needs to learn a lesson from this – don’t let smaller wrestlers get under your center of gravity with their arms under yours. Recipe for failure.
