There’s no question Strikeforce welterweight Tyron Woodley is one of the division’s better grapplers. As such, he’s not only well-versed in takedowns and ground-work but also familiar with how to work in a clinch – skills he hopes to put on display Saturday night against Jordan Mein at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine.

In this MMATraining Technique of the Day, Woodley demonstrates some basic defense to either work out of an opponent’s clinch or position yourself in an advantageous manner to dish out some damage of your own.
