This past Sunday, the grappling world had one of the biggest matches of the year, Gordon Ryan vs Felipe Pena 3. The much anticipated trilogy was a no time limit, submission only match. Despite going 44 minutes, the match had a good amount of action sequences and teachable moments. On this video, I’m covering the effective sweeps that Gordon used from his bottom half guard.
Both sweeps were initiated from the same error that Felipe made, sitting to his hip facing Gordon’s hips – without controlling Gordon’s top arm. This allowed Gordon to get his arm behind Felipe, and execute both sweeps – the hip bump to the back and the Overwrap leg trap.
