GIF - Tim Boetsch's Awesome Hip Throw at UFC 135 - Harai Goshi

That was some spectacular no-gi Judo skills shown by Tim Boetsch at UFC 135- Joe Rogan said it was an Uchi Mata, but it would technically be closer to a Harai Goshi, as it reaps outside, not between the legs. Here's an example of the Uchi Mata Joe was thinking of shown by Karo Parisyan. 

Also, on a side note, I sincerely hope Steven Seagal gets hit by the short bus he apparently rides around on:
No one cares about your opinion, dude. And Anderson and the rest of Black House don't give a rat's ass either, if you haven't figured it out yet.

AMAZING throw!! I normally do an under hook rather than an over hook with the arm on this throw, but I was just watching a video of Shinya Aoki demonstrating his no-gi technique with this throw, and he also over hooks the arm. After watching that, and this, I'm sold. I'm going to try it :)

Also, loved your comments about Segal. What an arrogant (try to prove how not arrogant he is) jerk.

Thanks for sharing!! GREAT FREAKING THROW!

It's better with the whizzer instead of the underhook because not only can you whip their upper body forward for the throw much more easily, your opponent has a harder time whipping his arm up and around to escape.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
