    butterfly guard can also be used to set up the opponent on top easier. often wit a regular fuard in MMA, most ppl just keep it closed and wit their inexperience are left to just hold on

    The guys hips is where all power comes from.. if you control a guys hips you can dominate him with ease... thats if you know what youre doing

    the butterfly guard allows you to control your opponents hips and conrol were they move easier but the closed guard stops pretty much any offense the opponent has. to go for any sub attempts your gonna have to open your guard sometime.

    He used a butterfly against Evan Tanner, who has an uncanny ability at getting a full mount on his opponents. The butterfly guard negated Tanner's attempts.

    In general, there are more submission options from open guard and more more sweep options while in butterfly guard, but it depends largely on how you train. Most people train regular guard more, so they are better at it but also their opponents are better at defending attacks from guard.

    but if youre looking to hit a triangle wouldnt that be better for a distance factor keeping the guy from hitting you?
