Marcelo Garcia vs Rafael Lovato Jr part 4

Establishing Single X:

Marcelo has clearly had enough of being smashed and he goes to his strongest game – the X Guard. He starts by pushing his left leg in a little deeper, while stopping the mount with his right knee, to then bring his left foot up on Rafael’s right hip, establishing the Single X position.
