In his second fight at World Masters, Xande attempted a basic hook sweep but his opponent defended by posting the leg. Xande used the space to get underneath his hips and set up the curu curu guard, with one foot in the growing and the other hooking behind the far knee. By stretching both his legs, he put his opponent on the mat, and while holding the leg, he stands up into base. His opponent also stood up, so Xande changed the leg to his other hand and grabbed his opponent's belt from behind, before spinning to bring him down and finish the sweep.
