UFC light heavyweight icon Tito Ortiz is known for having one of the nastiest ground-and-pound assaults in MMA. However, without the ability to get his opponent down to the mat his skill for smashing opponents into pulp would be moot.

In this MMATraining Technique of the Day, the former champ (who faces Antonio Rogerio Nogueira this Saturday night at UFC 140) demonstrates how to do a Head-Snap Takedown in hopes of giving the viewer another method for putting an adversary on his backside rather than the standard single/double-leg takedown.
