March 2017, Day 12, Endo v Terunofuji

Terunofuji stays one loss behind tournament leader Yokozuna Kisenosato, surviving a scare at the ring’s edge when Endo gets a great low position inside and almost forces him out. Terunofuji hangs on to a desperate hold on Endo’s belt, reaching all the way over his back, working back to the center of the ring and then crushing Endo underneath his weight. Winning technique is abisetaoshi, or backward force down.
