Flashback Friday: Paulo Miyao 2013 Pan Jiu-Jitsu Match

Here is a match with Paulo Miyao from the 2013 IBJJF Pan Jiu-Jitsu tournament earlier this year. Unfortunately I don't know his opponent's name but it does appear to be an Absolute match.

Miyao threatens early with a leg-lasso spider/De la Riva hook which eventually allows him to attack with Berimbolo as you would expect.  His opponent does a good job to prevent the back-take by taking a seat himself and controlling Miyao's grips (note: Miyao's non-DLR leg).

At the 3:00 mark Miyao attacks with an Omoplata which was the beginning of the end.

His opponent attempts to posture out of the shoulder lock at 3:47.  Note how Miyao compromises his posture (at 3:56) and bring him back to the floor.

Miyao does an excellent job of keeping the pressure on as his opponent finally tries to somersault roll and Miyao obliges him.  He allows him to feel safe, remove the shoulder lock, then takes his back for all his efforts at 4:26.

Interestingly Miyao appears to finish the match with a modified sleeve/collar choke rather than the typical lapel choke from the back.
