Add to Favorites Remove From Favorites 719 1490 days ago

Xande discusses his semi-finals in the open weight division, when his opponent tried to pull guard on him, and made the mistake of using same side leg that he had the collar grip rather than the sleeve grip. Xande immediately grabbed the pants, and as his opponent was falling to the mat, he jumped and used the X-pass. His opponent was able to turn and get his knee in, so Xande jumped to the other side, where his opponent turned again, so he again jumped to the other side and established the guard pass.

Now he can fall to his side, cross his feet and finish the knee bar.
