Again from three quarter mount, Victor slides his body down and keeps his weight on his opponent's leg and looks to get the cross face. But this time his opponent is defending by staying on his side and blocking Victor's arm. Now Victor uses his stomach to trap the arm, and reaches around behind the head and grabs the wrist. Next he brings his free leg up so his knee is behind the shoulders, and he feeds his other hand through, connecting his Kimura grip. From here he just opens his knee and sits back, pulling his opponent on top of him before rolling to the other side, where he can throw on his second hook and establish back control.

Xande begins in his opponent's half guard, and his first idea is to get the underhook high in the armpit on the opposite side he is passing to, and to place his head next to his opponent's head on the same side he is passing to. His inside hip stays connected and putting pressure on the thigh, and his outside leg posts far out, staying open and distributing his weight. With his free hand, he reaches down and grabs the pants to control the leg. From here, he has the leverage to maintain his base and defend any sweep attempts. When he has the space and opportunity, Xande can begin to pass by bringing his knee up and cutting it to the outside, working for the knee cut pass.
