Fresh off his victory over Akbarh Arreola at UFC 193, Jake Matthews returns for another edition of Submission Radio's "Technique of the Week".

This week, the 21-year-old Australian demonstrates how to set up takedowns using a level-change and striking combination. Keeping your opponent guessing is a powerful tool, as they won't know whether you're coming to knock them out or take them to the ground.

Enjoy the video above, and happy training!

Submission Radio posts technique videos every Wednesday, demonstrating a variety of moves from BJJ, MMA, boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, Muay Thai, Sambo, and much more.
