Again from the closed guard, Victor drags his opponent's arm across and escapes his hips, looking to climb to the back. But this time his opponent drives his weight back into him, so Victor swivels his hips and underhooks the near leg. Now he opens his leg wide and swings like a pendulum to sweep to the mount. Since the arm is across the body, it's easy for Victor to switch to S-mount right away and go for the armbar.

With his opponent defending his neck by crossing his arms, Kayan hugs the bent arm and sits back as he would to finish an armbar.
