    I am just rewatching the Joslin/Koscheck fight, is it possible to sweep by rolling over from the bottom here?

    it looks like he is adjusting his guard and waiting for a triangle.

    He could possibly get a hook in and do a butterfly sweep or pull off a sloppy armpit toss, galileo or scissor sweep since kos doesn't appear to have a good base on his right side. Then again he could switch bases. It's really hard to tell with one pic.

    Yeah the way I learned it you reach up like that maybe for a kimura open your guard and turn your hips over, I guess it would be to the right in that picture, and you got a back sweep

    yeah thats a hip bump, but its usually done when the guy on top sits back. Koscheck has so much weight on top of joslin in that picture, I'd imagine it being difficult to pull off.
