    I was doing some clinch work in our Muay Thai class last night. When doing the sweep I was pressing forward to create pressure so my oppnent presses back and I release pressure and step to the side and use my foot as a barrier so he goes to the ground. is there any other sweeps that are similar I also compete in Mma and would like to learn more more sweeps to take it to the ground

    A couple of variations of those:
    1) use your knee and bump their leg out while turning them. So eg. from ortodox, your right knee bumps to the left, while you turn them to the right
    2) same thing as you did in the OP, except this one is as they are throwing a knee at you. In order words, they're on 1 leg when you do it. This one I find the easiest for me to land

    What do you mean by this? Do you mean he squats slightly and base out to prevent the sweep? If its this, just knee him. Then turn to disrupt the balance, and work from there.

    Over and under like a wrestling clinch? 1 over hook + 1 underhook? Or do you mean a single collar tie (MT)?

    If the earlier, I'm not sure. Turns usually work well when you have at least one arm controlling the head (think of pulling the ear).
