    Yep.

    MT clinch aka no underhooks against a wrassler. Yeah, not gonna be too great.

    Weight on back leg? Bye bye sprawls

    Not used to trips from the clinch as those are illegal

    Hell, you can arm triangle people in MT, its technically a hold. That was an issue a but back, grapplers moving over put the nak muays there and choked them out. Played it off as a side knee KO'd him, and everyone was pissed. Couldn't do jack though, its a legal hold like a single collar

    To be honest I think muay thai clinching when done properly... as in Thai style, is VERY effective. Actual Thai style clinching largely ignores the double collar tie and is about head positioning (namely below the opponents), double underhooks, body locks.

    Guys like Matt Brown and Demetrious Johnson get it, you even see Overeem going for the Thai sweeps... it's just that Anderson Silva looked so good doing a double collar tie against a guy who'd never seen it before, that people just sorta thought that's what muay thai clinching is.

    I rarely use the double collar these days and that's because my partners are great at preventing it. So I'm really in single collar 95% of the time. Still, against greco guys, I get put on my back

    As much as I hate to say it, wonderboy dispelled the myth that side-on stance Kickboxing loses to wrestling bases. It can work. Yes he crosstrains, but he is still nowhere near the level of a wrestler.

    So a Taekwondo base can absolutely work.

    My game is all double underhooks and body locks, if someone tries to double collar me, if just cup their right bicep and crossface them off with the left. Or I'll pull on the bicep to get them to resist and then throw their arm up, take the back and dump. I'd say my clinching is fairly Thai style, but I imagine it's going to gradually get more and more sambo as time goes on.

    My defence against Arize is that sans the throws, there's not really much difference, there's only so many ways to grab a guy.
