Yeah, and that works for a taller, lighter, probably quicker guy. For me it's necessary to get as close as I can so I don't get worked over by my opponents jabs.

I do most of my damage from the thai clinch and dirty boxing position. Elbows are vicious, as is my right hand and my right knee, but if I'm fighting a taller guy I have to clinch, maybe throw one or two shots on him and then take him down.

That's really the key for me, I'm always looking for the takedown, always trying to set it up. I guesss one of the reasons why my takedowns get stuffed, even by good wrestlers, is because I throw a few shots at them first to give them something to think about.
