The fighter performing the guard attempts to neutral the movement of the fighter on top in order to either escape the bottom position or to perform a submission from guard to win the match. A fighter can end up in guard position by either being taken down, being reversed, or purposely pulling their opponent into the guard in order to get the fight to the ground.
