    Has Riner been promoted to 6th dan? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1zgUiHw-Zw
    He wears a kohaku belt.

    I notice this nonsense about Kano holding the 12 dan is still in circulation.  Who comes up with this stuff?

    In any event it seems we'll be seeing Teddy back on the Tatami on Sunday.
    Looking forward to it.

    The match against Czech Lukas Krpalek was probably the match of the day.

    In the end I think it was a case of "size matters" but one has to give Krpalek credit for giving Teddy possibly the toughest match he's had outside of an Olympic final.

    Will be interesting to see them go at it again. Maybe Krpalek can hit the weights and put on another 20 lbs say.

    Or maybe work on his newaza and actually manage to win the bout there ?
    He tried a few times but he didn't look 100% commited.

    disclaimer : I don't mean it would've been easy…
