    Technically a reversal, and not a sweep. Fedor has him basically in Knee On Belly and the move Dan hits is very similar mechanics to a half guard single leg sweep(even though it's not from HG but from bottom KOB). He comes up on the leg and takes the back. But you are right, it is a reversal since it started from a dominant position.

    Also not really a sweep and I can't find a gif but Ramos his Kimura to a back take last weekend on Nick Hein was awesome.

    My all time favorite is Carlos Newton sweeping Matt Hughes from full guard to full mount, absolutely beautiful but cannot find a gif anywhere

    Yeah it was, amazing grappling match for the best part of three rounds, Jason held his own for a good while

    His grappling comps haven't been that impressive to watch. Think that was before training with Danis so he's probably a lot better now tbf.

    I'm not a fan of Conor but you're just embarrasing yourself. It was a nice sweep, don't be salty.

    I was looking for a really nice kimura sweep that Mark Hominick hit back in WEC but couldn't find a gif. I forget who the opponent was.

    Second one that came to mind was Mir vs Nog II

    and this amazing sweep defense:

    EDIT: Fight I was thinking of with Hominick was against Yves Jabouin. Kimura sweep to full mount to gnp stoppage. Beautiful stuff.

    Holloway was barely a blue belt and still training out of his garage. Nate wasn't grappling he was punching.

    Conor's ground game isn't underrated.

    GSP's pendulum sweep is as clean as they get.

    That was a pretty terrible argument you made there.

    Honest to God....If I was a young man training MMA....I'd spend half my time learning sweeps.
