>>4037330Is it disrespectful to start not from the center of the ring like Hakuho here?
>>4038716You can't go past the lines, but anywhere behind them is a-okay. There's tactical reasons to start farther behind the line than usual.Webm related. Mainoumi was a smaller guy who beat much larger dudes by being athletic, a good technician, and doing crazy shit like leaping around people at the tachiai. Here Takatoriki starts far back to stop any shenanigans.Nobody but Hakuho knows why he started that far back, but it clearly fucked with Shodai's head. Hakuho's a master at mind games so it's very in character for him.
>>4037348>>4037350>still has glossy toenailsnot even a foot fag but damn thats cute on a wrestler
>>4040018>wrestlerwas thinking mma fighter but also mind stuck on /pw/ on well fuck u
Oh shit sumo is pretty cool.How does a burger land get into it/understand the rules? All I know about sumo is from fighting games.
>>4038716Thats a nope. Some could call it unorthodox, but its really not. Its just another strategy
>>4039537very cool. I didnt see this match
>>4040293The basic rules are pretty simple.You win if >you force the other guy out of the ring>you make the other guy take the floor with any body part other than the soles of his feetHere's a video that explains it pretty wellhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMANOt2Jw88The site from NHK has videos explaining a bit more in depth and covers other aspects of sumo, like the ceremonial elements and suchhttps://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/tv/sumo/sumopedia/
>>4040567>>4040569Kotoeko and Tobizaru were both really disappointing in this tournament.
Anyone got the Hakuho vs Tobizaru with sound?
Terunofuji has been promoted to Yokozuna
>>4041272Anyone got google?
>>4043280Hell the stupid fucking ref could be blamed for that one.
>>4043280>make distance>get pushed into a punch by the reftop kek and they said boxing couldn't get any worse
>>4045393He probably thought the ref was trying to step in too since he was so close and put his hands on him. Poor fucking guy.
>>4045497My thoughts as well. Completely undeserved knockout. Such is life in reffed sports.
>>4045734what did he say or do to him?

>>4046925thanks to the anon who posts these clips for us
>>4037330hakuho vs tobizaru in the last tournament just now was really funny
>>4038716hakuho can do whatever he wants he's the best sumo wrestler who ever lived no comparison whatsoever from anyone
COMIN IN HOT WITH SOME OCThis was classic UFC, before they invented a bunch of pesky rules and ad breaks.Notice the patented ballbusting technique, as he rips off the guys shorts while hes choking him.
Original UFC was fucking brutal. the refs let beatdowns continue for way too long
more OC of banned moves from old UFCs
>>4047094>>4038716>>4037330isnt sumo rigged? or are the japs still not admitting that.
>>4050774every sport is rigged. literally every single one
>>4050774Sometimes I feel like its rigged. Like when they just kinda give up halfway through and get pushed even though theyre in a pretty good spot.
>>4050774>>4053143yeah there was a big scandal about sumo wrestlers rigging matches in order to secure a winning record https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Match-fixing_in_professional_sumo
