I thought that was a little more complex than a straight double and I found very nice to watch.
Actually a correct double drives sideways after contact so that the guy cannot sprawl. Sonnen hits a lot of power doubles which are just driving through a guy but if your sprawl super well it can be stopped.

Also the couture Toney fight was a low ankle pick in no way did randy shoot in and get a outside single. He was basically laying on the floor when he took James down.
