Double KO! Karo's head smacked the mat also. Im sure he was alittle dizzy after that. Nice work though.

Regarding Laimon's "head throw" comment - it's a really risky move. In Judo, you don't care if someone takes your back after you've thrown him hard, 'cause the match is over by then, and even if it's not, you don't get penalized for having your back taken (massive flaw in the judo rules IMO). In MMA or even sub grappling, it can be disastrous. In my very first sub grappling tourney, I won two fights because people tried that throw on me. And if I remember, in that scene in TUF, the guy who went for the throw got countered and had his back taken.
Karo's throw is great, except for his own ukemi (ouch). I'd say it's an o soto gari attempt that turns out a harai goshi.

BTW it reminds me this comment
"it maybe works in takada dojo, but it will never work in a ring"
eddie bravo about the kimura from the back that a japanese pro wrestler (you-know-who) was doing in renzo gracie before he broke renzo's arm
