Why doesn't BJJ utilize Judo throws?

Sorry, I have never taken any BJJ classes, but I know it was derived from Judo right? Well it seems like all of the BJJ specialists have their main flaw of not being able to get the fight to the ground and I have seen how effective Judo throws are by fighters such as Karo and even Sambo users such as Fedor since Sambo is also derived from Judo. I never see BJJ specialists utilizing many throws though and was just wondering why that is...sorry if this is a stupid question just curious and trying to learn more about the art and just thought it would be much more beneficial for fighters in MMA. I know it isn't that big of a deal in BJJ competitions since they are purely grappling, but I think it would definitely make some BJJ guys in the UFC a lot more dangerous if they could get the fight to the ground whenever they wanted.

Actually we had couple of judo lessons in our bjj class. They brought sum brownbelt to teach us how to get your opponent to the ground. It was suppouse to help us in competitions but I havn't found it useful in any of my fights, maybe it's because of we didn't trained it enough tho.

BJJ does involve Judo, in my classes the warm up usually consists of some Judo. All BJJ matches start standing so naturally Judo is a main part of BJJ since your goal is to get them down. You don't see it much in MMA becasue there is no Gi to grab onto, eliminating Judo almost entirely.

well most MMA fighters only have blue or brown belts when they start to compete. In BJJ you start learning throws when your purple and brown belt and they do study Judo throws as you get more advanced. I think you don't see a lot of it in MMA due to the cage and take down defense tech. From everyone else that nulifies it a bit. But you will see it here and there and it happens fast. So Lots of people didn't realize it was a Judo Throw. Where a double or single leg takedowns can take a spell for it to happen. Judo is very Great art espcially if they land on there head. That really slows em down a bit.

I'm certain that everybody in the UFC is familiar with Judo. But, just as everyone is familiar with Jiu jitsu, a lot of competitors don't want to go for submissions because it's not their strength. If we were to see Brock vs. JDS, I'm sure Brock would try to avoid standing and trading for too long.

 

So, a guy who has a pretty good basic Judo throw doesn't risk using it in a fight because a good wrestler might suplex him or a good BJJ guy might take his back.
