Watch the first few UFCs, I've been watching 1-3 lately myself. A lot of times either he would put his hands high to bait the other guy into throwing punches and shoot under their punch. More often he'd use a front kick or side kick to the leg, if it lands great, if it doesn't he uses that forward momentum in place of a drop steep to shoot from. Good luck.

Royce has some very cool takedowns. I saw one in UFC where he extended his arms and grabbed a guys upper leg, then swung around like a kid on a pole and threw the guy. I tried it in competition with a body lock, but it didn't work :/ hehe

a lot of practice, take downs take a lot of practice so that you can set them up, its not the take down that is hard, its the setup.
