He grabs the sleeve and drives his inside leg forward some more, and now has the option to step back and pass to the side or go straight to mount.

Now he grabs the hand that is pushing his knee, and pulls it down. He reaches over the arm and grabs the belt, trapping the arm now. Next he moves his legs so that his foot is now blocking the far leg rather than the near foot, and his other foot plants on the mat so he can bridge and sweep his opponent.
