    Dam Rhadi, attempts multiple shoots and attempts one crappy throw. He's basically tlegraphing himself so much until he does the flying arm bar! That was sweet!:icon_chee

    Yeah, Rhadi is a phenomenal athlete and has had lots of success in grappling but his standup Judo is just plain ugly. I'm not saying it doesn't work but DAMN is it ugly.

    I liked the fake "oops I slipped" fall to his stomach when it looked like the other guy was about to toss the hell out of him.

    Yup, because when you're reffing you're thinking "did he flop, or did I miss something". If it happens a second time you're pretty sure its intentional. Every competitor should do at least a bit of refereeing, you get a much better idea of how and why things are called.

    That armlock actually looks like the one that Rickson does in his Pride demo with Royler. I should see if I can find the clip. It starts off more like a guard pull than a real flying move and ends, well ... ask Steve ...

    EDIT:
    Here's the one I'm thinking about. From about 0:57 to 1:05.

    I've seen a version of this video where you can see Nakamura and Yoshida watching from the crowd. It was really funny seeing their faces...

    Nick Gill smoked Edmunds with a nice kata-guruma.

    The vid was there but I can't find it.

    30 seconds.
