Return of Crouching Guard Passing: Paulo Miyao @ Brazilian Nationals

It was only a matter of time.
Whether it was Galvao vs Leandro Lo, or watching Gianni Grippo in some recent matches, persistent top players are now avoiding much of the dreaded berimbolo by refusing to pass form an even semi-standing position.

As you'll see below, Saggioro, around the 3 minute mark stays standing a bit too long and Miyao almost immediately inverts, and topples him over: making it to the back by the 3:38 mark.
Miyao hunts for the choke but loses back position by 4:38.
We see a couple minutes of closed guard work by Miyao and finds the window to Berimbolo around 6:30 followed by a leg drag to a 2nd back take.
