Video: Technique of the Week - How to do a Jon Jones double leg takedown

Watch Shawn Davies explain how to do a Jon Jones double leg takedown, similar to the ones he used on Alexander Gustafsson.

On Saturday night, fight fans will be treated to an enthralling night of action, as light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and title challenger Daniel Cormier cross paths in arguably the most competitive 205-pound title fight in recent memory. The match-up, which takes place at UFC 182, is months of animosity in the making and will likely result in a memorable start to 2015.

To coincide with the event, Submission Radio's latest ‘Technique of the Week' video is specifically about Jones and his double leg takedown. Shawn Davies breaks down exactly how to perform the champion's wrestling attack. It is an pivotal part of Jones' game and has used it in the past to hinder fighters like Alexander Gustafsson and Chael Sonnen. It will be interesting to see whether he will encorporate into his gameplan against the Olympic-calibre wrestler Daniel Cormier.

Watch the video above.

UFC 182 takes place Saturday, Jan. 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
