He elevates Lo slightly with his left foot. Is this a specific sweep set up? Or just an off balancing technique?

Adam is really good. There is however no doubt Lo is not at his physical peak anymore. Lo has had to many wars and injuries. Adam is going to giving top guys problems for the foreseeable future.

Its a way to get Lo's knee to the mat. I would guess he's doing this so he can set up his A game which is butterfly guard. 

 

Here you can see Sean Roberts use this on Rodolfo.

BJJ Scout covers this in his fantastic breakdown of Adam's guard game. Starts at about 3:45 of this video:
