Sasae Judo Throw GIF at Freestyle Wrestling World Cup 2014

I saw this video posted on Sherdog’s grappling forum and noticed a nice throw at the beginning of this 65kg match between Brent Metcalf (USA) Meysam Nasiri (Iran).

In judo it’s called a sasae tsurikomi ashi (lifting pulling ankle block), a very common throw or setup.

Is there a name for this in wrestling, other than double under leg trip?

How common is it?  Post in the comments below!
