I think both of you are focused on winning and being right, which escalates the conflict. If instead you focused on minimizing conflict, these situations wouldn't escalate so much.
It's wayyy easier said than done though. But try it--the next time he does something rude or sarcastic, just let it slide. Don't react negatively or escalate the situation. Unbelievable's suggestion is an interesting one--it might work, or it might be viewed as passive aggressive and anger him more. (I get WAY more angry if anyone tries to pull that "Look at me, I'm so calm, I'm so much better than you" kind of bs haha). If you do it right though, and aren't trying to be passive aggressive but just sincerely calm, I think it can work!
