Ura Undergoes Knee Surgery


Reports from Japan this morning that Ura has elected to undergo surgery to repair knee damage, specifically the “right anterior cruciate ligament”. His recovery is expected to last at least three months, but the article sports optimism that he will return to sumo at a more rapid pace.

Frankly, I would much rather see Ura fully recovered and strong a few months later. But all of his fans (myself included) wish him good fortune in surgery, and a solid recovery.

  1. I was hoping that he would just fix both his ligament and his meniscus together. It’s the meniscus that caused him to tear that ligament in the first place.
