January 2017, Day 5, Chiyotairyu v Sokokurai

Chiyotairyu knows what’s coming if he lets Sokokurai get a hold of his belt, so he uses all his energy trying to keep his opponent away. Once he runs out of steam and Sokokurai gets the left-handed underhand grip, you can almost see the concern etch itself into wrinkles on Chiyotairyu’s forehead. And rightly so, as Sokokurai finishes nicely with a shitatedashinage (pulling underarm throw). Sokokurai wins his fifth bout in a row, Chiyotairyu drops to 2-3.
