In about a month Strikeforce lightweight Pat Healy will take to the cage for the most important fight of his career – a bout against divisional champion Gilbert Melendez. Melendez, who has crisp boxing backed by solid wrestling, is a stiff challenge to be sure though not an unbeatable one.

In this MMATraining Grappling Technique of the Day, Healy demonstrates some of the strategy he’s likely to use if put on his back, and from the looks of it he should be fully prepared come showtime on September 29.
