Daijuyama from '81 to '89 had 7 basho at sanyaku getting 6 MK and 1 KK (8-7)
Fujinokawa did the same in the late 60's.
Fujizakura in the 70's & 80's had 10 sanyaku basho with 9 MK's
Tsurugamine in the 50's and 60's had 11 basho with 9 MK's.

The rikishi with the most MK's from lower sanyaku as far as I can see is
Takamiyama who had 27 basho as Komusubi or Sekiwake and went MK in 15 of
them and of his 12 KK's 9 of them were 8-7.
