If UFC 141 was your first introduction to the bearded-brawler known as Johny Hendricks you may have found yourself viewing him as little more than a power-puncher based on the way he put Jon Fitch to sleep. However, Hendricks is a decorated wrestler with multiple national titles to his name who just happens to pack ether in his knuckles.
In this MMATraining Technique of the Day, Hendricks teaches a group one of the core components to wrestling – the sprawl. It’s easy to learn and, at least based on the age of his students, anyone should be able to pick it up and refine their takedown defense.
