The pair met with a thunderous collision in mid-ring but Mitakeumi was unable to keep Terunofuji from latching on to his belt. Once he did, the yokozuna spun his opponent 180 degrees and then easily walked him out of the circle for the victory. Takanosho, who defeated Terunofuji earlier in the tournament, came into the final day tied for the lead at 11-3 and with a shot at his first ever title but he dropped his last match to Sadanoumi.
