Now Xande's opponent has his back with both collar grips, and has pulled him on his side, looking to finish the choke. Xande's first line of defense is to keep his opponent's triceps on the floor and prevent him from sitting up to his forearm. He pushes the top hook and scoots over the bottom leg, same as before, but this time he cannot get to side control because of the choke grips. Instead he kicks his leg back diagonally and rolls over his outside shoulder to his knees. From here he fights to establish side control.
