    I liked Sumo a lot more back in the day before it got invaded by dudes who were more just huge than technical.

    Chiyonofuji was renowned for being smaller, more technical, and more athletic than his competitors. Probably the last great rikishi to weigh less than 300 lbs. RIP to the fierce Wolf.

    ^^ Oh come on. There's no comparison between Chiyonofuji and Takanoyama, and you know it. Chiyonofuji is a legend, top 10 in the record books for most wins and championships. Takanoyama was a novelty, he was never going to win enough to be a yokozuna.
