lol, man. You can't be serious... Not only does Wanderlei clinch a little more than "sometimes," he was really one of the first if not the first to truly show how effective muay thai techniques like the clinch can be in MMA. I know because it's the reason I started liking him in the first place. Anderson of course is the new and improved version, but different topic for a different day... His fight with Mezger: dirty boxing clinch rampage 1: knees from the clinch, dirty boxing rampage 2: knees first fight with cro cop: closed the distance swinging, clinched for takedowns mark hunt: moved forward swinging, clinched for takedowns arona: closed the distance swinging, clinched for takedowns petarra: nothing but knees etc, etc Yes, he swings and occasionally has won only with swings. So has Fedor, despite being most at home grappling. But Silva's bread and butter is fighting on the inside, and he knows it. Or at least he used to, after watching the fight with Chuck.
