    Awesome performance by Matt. I especially loved the sweeps. Why nobody else uses sweeps regularly? Looks pretty damn effective. Please share if you have any gifs, Matt vs Eric or any other fight. Wanna see more sweeps :)

    Only half of them were sweeps. The other half Matt just grabbed silva by the neck with both hands and tossed him on the ground. Looked like a schoolyard fight

    Silva was gassed and beaten mentally, so it made the sweeps much more dramatic. Not taking any credit away from Brown though, dude went into beast mode and fucked shit up. Good for him.

    My old muay Thai coach use to use those sweeps regularly and even worked them on UFC fighters in our old gym regularly. They are beautiful and yes even if you don't trip it's still a sweep.

    Anyway, what beautiful destruction. A sunset on the Rocky mountains has nothing on that.

    Pague vs. Jabouin... I think Pague has pulled this off before too

    that's pretty sweet. doesn't look like he has that much control from the clinch to begin with but then...

    They are still sweeps. You grab the back of the head not neck. Guys with really strong clinch pull that off and it's so bad ass.

    Machida vs Hendo, machida pulled off a nice trip in the clinch.

    IIRC Maia hit an amazing sweep on Sonnen right into the triangle.

    No. Just no. Watch some Saenchai highlights. I'd wager that Matt Brown has.

    That sweep then the triangle was absolutely beautiful, the sort of shit that makes you appreciate the beauty of submissions

    That's a sasae tsurikomi ashi, Brown's looked more like a de ashi barai if I remember correctly but I'd need to re-watch it.

    Sasae is where you bring them over the foot whereas a de ashi barai is where you get your opponent moving and sweep their leg across the front of them.

    Silva was exhausted, that's why those were so effective

    Hmm thats not a muay thai sweep. Jabouin has the thai plum and should have control of the head but got swept by pague

    First person that came to mind. Pretty much the only takedown lyoto uses is foot trips

    Machida definitely has beautiful trips.
