From his classic guard, maybe when he goes for the scissors sweep, Xande's opponent steps over his leg so Xande immediately snake bites the trapped leg. At the same time, he catches his opponent's chin with his wrist making the collar grip. From here he can make his other collar grip and finish the choke, which is a better option for him than trying to get back to a closed guard to finish.

Diving into some specifics about setting up and catching the triangle, Xande shows how he needs to be squared up to his opponent when he pulls him in, rather than trying to go at an angle. If he pulls from an angle, he opens himself up to getting passed right away, but when he pulls straight, his opponent has to brace himself and gives Xande a better opportunity to catch the triangle.
