Tachiai has meritoriously awarded a generous bounty of 10,000 mawashi points to reader Nista, who was so incredibly kind to post the video of our favorite Texas sumotori.
Sadly, he did in fact lose his match, but there are a number of interesting cues we can gather from watching his first battle in Sandanme. Firstly, the rikishi he is facing now are much tougher. Second, they are still struggling with his hair. Lastly, I think he may have actually lost weight from Aki.
