Part 2

While Watching this video I took some notes.

In Video 1 in Round 2:
@ 7:11 of the video, Carlos goes for an awesome 360 type spin pass that lands him in the mount.
@ 7:24 Carlos does a great job of using the Karo Pass to end up in Miura’s half guard.
@ 8:00 Miura has a “Lockdown” with double underhooks. At one point he also get’s on gets an arm hooked under the far leg, I thought he might be looking to sweep. Instead of trying to sweep from this position, he just used it to rest. He doesn’t make much of an effort to whip up to his side.
@ 9:17 Carlos is in a perfect position to use “Swim Move” to get to the “Spider Web” or armbar position. He goes for the arm, but can’t control Miura’s body and eventually loses the hold.

Great back and forth action, It was very entertaining!
