Nick goes over a common mistake made when mounting your opponent, which is to throw your leg over and leave way too much space for him to replace guard. If he does throw his leg over, he switches his base first, but he much prefers to slide the knee across the belly and keep pressure the whole time while he takes the mount.

Continuing with the double unders pass, now when Nick gets to side control his opponent turns to face him. Nick is expecting him to do this and he times his movement to mount as his opponent turns. Still with his collar grip, Nick has some options to look for the choke now.

While passing the guard, Nick gets both his arms under his opponent's legs and clasps his hands above the hips. Next he lifts his opponent's hips and pulls him on top of his thighs. Now one arm reaches across to grab the far lapel, and stacks his opponent putting very heavy pressure on him, and inches his way to the side until his opponent willingly accepts side control because of the pressure.

After breaking his opponent's posture as shown previously, Nick gets the overhook, escapes his hips and pulls the head down. When his opponent makes a move to push his knee, Nick grabs the wrist and pins it to his opponent's body. From here it's easy for him to bring his leg over the top and cross his feet to start setting up the triangle.

Nick shows two ways to break your opponent's posture while in closed guard. In the first one, he swims his arms inside and pushes his opponent's arms off his belly while he pulls in with his legs. He finishes with an overhook and head control. In the second, his opponent puts his knee in Nick's but looking to open the guard, and Nick times his pull with his legs to break posture and then gets head control.
