They missed the sweep that Werdum threw Fedor off balance with.

HereWeAre - They missed the sweep that Werdum threw Fedor off balance with.
Would you call that a sweep? It looked like he Granby rolled and Fedor flowed with it to pass Werdum's guard. But unfortunately, the cage prohibited that from happening (not to take away anything from Werdum).

I'll defer to them, but is it just me, or is the way they describe the sequence leading up to the triangle wrong?

As I see it, Werdum goes down and ends up going for an armbar. Fedor esacapes and begins to pass and then Werdum rolls to recompose guard and ends up rolling into the triangle setup by controlling the head.

Well from going back in watching it I dont quite think it's a granby. Looks more like a roleta type sweep and if the cage wouldn't have been there he would have ended up in top position.

If you watch the gif you can tell that Fedor is very off balance and bangs in to the cage after he escapes the initial armbar defense.

Yeah, you see... I was under the impression that it was a Granby roll (BJJ version? lol) because he didn't trap any of Fedor's limbs like in traditional sweeps. I could be wrong, but it's hard to tell from that angle.

 haha That's why I noted "BJJ version" because it appeared that he was going to wind up in a turtle position but then rolled.

Delusions.
