Also watched some clips of clinching and some of the best Thai guys at it. You def see Buakaw tossing guys around in K1 very easily esp with that spinning twist very much like a sasae tsuri komi ashi in judo. As a wrestler/judo guy, Im finding this part of Thai very interesting because its a bit like dirty boxing but not really but where clinching (stand up grappling) and striking come together. Ill try to find that Thai clinch training clip at home. I guess its a bit like judo though where the style of clinching is limited to the rules. In judo, because getting taken down to your stomach doesnt matter so much, that effects the attacks and the stance. In MT, because you cant shoot for the legs for example, the stance is obviously very up right so as to not give up neck/plum position, yeah?

I know Buakaw has competed in the SCup but cant recall specifically how he has done in the clinch vs more grappling orientated guys. Toby Imada is a grappler, right? I'll have to look up some more SCup.

Ive made some threads on this but still trying to think of major MMA bouts between a clinch heavy MT guy vs a grappler esp a Greco or Judo guy. There was Overeem/Lesnar. Shogun fought Randleman but not sure how much clinch there was. Anderson/Chael but most of that was Anderson on the defense more against Chael's td attempts. Anderson was creative in the clinch vs Bonnnar though even Bonnar isnt a strong grappler and Anderson, because he's an MMAer, has more freedom to do things in the clinch (2 on 1 which is more used in wrestling for example).

I think the potential Randy/Wand fight would have been interesting vs Greco vs Thai clinch.

Sakurai vs Trigg was a bit of an example I guess though Sakurai did not dominate with the Thai clinch until he rocked Trigg with a punch first though the punch happened in close quarters.

I like both to be honest. I love traditional Thai style of fighting with slow build. I have fought both as well and strangely prefer K1 rules but Thai style without elbows as I can stay pretty
