    A lot of big guys like to clinch so they can use their weight and strength advantage, I normally clinch with other heavyweights a couple times so they get in a groove, then go for shuck and high crotch.

    Learn how to keep him moving and time his steps. I'd go for a trip or a single leg. Keep moving, keep him tired and explode. Lots of feints to keep him guessing and move in and out. Do whatever you can to make him work, cause the more he works the faster he burns out.

    As far as defending, I don't really know for sure. When I cant scoot my hips out sometimes it helps to push the persons head away. But I can see why you wouldnt want to extend your arm. Think scrambles.
