November 2016, Day 13, Mitakeumi v Yoshikaze

Yoshikaze picks up his fifth win of the tournament with a slick move against Mitakeumi. After a fairly even tachiai, Yoshikaze works to his right to secure the right-handed overarm belt grip. But by the time he latches on, he’s in a terrible position right on the edge of the ring with Mitakeumi poised to push him out. So he just keeps going right, using Mitakeumi’s weight as the anchor for his spin move and dancing around Mitakeumi’s outstretched left foot. Yoshikaze ends up standing in the ring, and Mitakeumi hits the dirt like a guy tripping over his dog in a pitch-black room in the middle of the night.
