Watch this sumo referee catch a somersault kick directly to the face

Watch this sumo referee catch a somersault kick directly to the face

Everything about this .gif of a sumo wrestler accidentally somersault kicking a ref in the face is severely hypnotic. I watched it 56 times before I could even start this article -- and now that I'm writing it, I'm finding difficult to finish it. It's just the perfect heel-to-chin kick. It even appears that when the ref dropped down his head comes crashing down on his knee. We don't really know when or where this event took place, but apparently it's fairly recent and it's probably going to go viral by the time you read this. Props to @Stullo4real for the find.
