Otavio Sousa vs Lucas Lepri - Abu Dhabi Pro Trials 2014

Two guys I haven't seen face one another before:
Otavio's game is one I've studied a bit in the past.
He goes for his DLR hook to omoplata which he normally uses to sweep if not finish with  an armlock but Lepri spins quickly and recomposes to pass. Otavio looks for his sit-up guard sweep with the DLR hook but Lepri wisely does not retreat giving Otavio the direction he needs to impose the sweep as he would normally.

Otavio is a bit lackadaisical with his guard retention and Lepri's pressure is spot on, and he gets the x-pass/torreando/tornado/whatever it's called these days pass to the back.
