Katasukashi. On the day Midorifuji took his first loss, Ura beat Shodai with a fantastic version of the Green Fuji's signature move. (And Midorifuji lost because Wakamotoharu saw it coming and tackled him out.)
Match of the Day
20 Maegashira #6 East Endo versus 04 Sekiwake #1 West Hoshoryu
For a short match, this one had a lot going on to end Day Eleven. At the tachiai, Hoshoryu got off much more quickly. It almost looked like a matta, except replay showed Endo's hands were down and just didn't move that fast. Endo also seemed like he was maybe sidestepping, but Hoshoryu grabbed a hold of the back of Endo's mawashi. By all rights, that would end the match. Instead, Endo grabbed the back of Hoshoryu's mawashi, which required Hoshoryu to perform an even heavier uwatenage for a win.
