In his final fight, Xande faced an opponent with a good butterfly guard, so he knew that he wanted to force the half guard. First, he grips the pants and gets the underhook, and when his opponent tries to lift him with the butterfly hook, he keeps his hand on the back rather than posting on the mat. While he is lifted off the mat, he breaks his hip, turning it to the outside and freeing his leg from the butterfly hook. At this point, his opponent locked the half guard. Xande reacted by opening his opponent's arm that was controlling his own arm, bringing his knee to the hip, and flattening him out to force the half guard.
