Quick Trip Tip from Cain Velasquez

Cool stuff you might use in your next bar fight or the next time you get jumped in a dark alley. Oh yeah, this might work in the cage too.

UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez, with the assistance of Strikeforce fighter Luke Rockhold, demonstrates a basic foot sweep from the over-and-under (clinch) position. Notice how Cain pulls downward from the underhook side while circling toward the underhook side. He then pivots on his overhook-side foot while canting his body slightly back and to the side. This offsets his opponent's balance. Lastly, Cain extends his underhook-side leg, placing his foot and leg in front of his opponent's to create a tripping, sweeping effect.
