Uchi Mata for MMA

Through my Judo training during the years I have always tried to think how Judo throws can be adapted for MMA. Since Gi's are not usually used for MMA fighting I always think about different grips for different throws and when they should be used, (for offence or counter).

The following clip shows Karo Parisyan adapting Uchi Mata, a very powerful throw used in Judo, for MMA and as a counter to a very popular MMA takedown. Enjoy.
