    Not a lot of talk anymore about sweeps in the elite echelons of MMA. Seems to be more geared towards getting back to your feet cos once you're on your back, you're losing.

    What are some of your favourite sweeps you've seen from a fighter of their back in MMA?

    Pick any Condit sweep off the cage. He does them often.

    Mike Pyle's Marcelo style side control escape against Jesse Lennox comes to mind. A perfect display of timing.
