the counter-intuitive thing is that just irish whipping him and having him do the 'woah, this is the edge' animation is not conductive to doing the top of cell grapple. as grappling him then will produce a regular grapple. after the 'woah' animation, punch once so the animation is neutral again but the avatar is close to the edge, THEN grapple him and he should get tossed.
