I finally found a good one!!!!
Actually, this is an excellent o soto gari (big outdide reap, outside leg sweep, outside trip) that Yoshihiro Akiyama exectuted on Alan Belcher late in the thrid round of their fight at UFC 100. Notice how Sexiyama follows Belcher to the ground, maintaining contact all the way, in order to continue the fight and attain dominance in matwork. h1.ripway.com/gkavanagh/akiyama osotgari.gif[/img]
Edit: I have been correct by my Sensei! He said that this is actually an osoto otoshi. "Otoshi" means drop, and this is exactly what Yoshihiro di: he dropped with his opponent to the mat. "Gari" means reap, and would have occurred if Akiyama came across and put his right leg around Belcher's left, as he did, but simply pushed up and back with the right foot, send Belcher and not himself to the mat.

Here is a Fantastic video demonstration by Shinya Aoki, utilizing Judo for MMA. Aoki is a high level judoka and top level MMA talent who most may remember is his losing effort against Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Glibert Melendez.
Shown are o soto gari, ko soto gari, saese tsurikomi ashi, harai goshi, uchi mata, o uchi gari, and a move called Sabaori. Sabaori is not one of the 69 throws recognized by the Kodokan, but is an effective technique for gaining a good mount/ top position.
