When your hips are pinned flat against the cage and your opponent is working for the takedown, it's best to angle your hips, pummel in for an under-hook, and spin your opponent into the cage as you did in the previous technique. However, if your opponent has already dropped low for your legs, it can sometimes be difficult to pummel in and establish an under-hook. In such a case, this technique comes in very handy. Instead of working to under-hook your opponent's arm, you reach over his body and wrap your arms around his leg. As long as you execute the move with speed and proper form, you will be able to rip your opponent over to his back and obtain the top position.
