Training for my fight (Questions)

I train and spar with a few buddies of mine (Including one guy who I swear is a kung fu master) and while I do, I notice that I'm constantly changing my stance. I go from southpaw to orthodox all the time, and I constantly put my hands in different spots. By this I mean, I may switch from a orthodox muay thai stance to a southpaw "machida" stance if you catch my drift.

The people I spar with usually have a hard time hitting me, but when I'm up against the wall/cage/what have you I get a little lost and I start to close myself up and defend trying to scramble away. I struggle in the clinch and they notice it and punish me for it.

So, basically my question is, is there anyway that my style can be used in a clinching scenario? I always eat a few shots before going for a thai clinch or just throwing randomly.

I have a similar problem, I use a southpaw stance but sometimes switch back and forth, though not usually because of an old knee injury on my planting foot for lead leg roundhouses and sidesnaps...I still worry about on my right knee in orthodox.

But my clinch skills...asuck. I don't move right, I get too stiff and close, because I overcompensate when I come in for the clinch. I end up standing straight...Humungo no no with my knee.

But even without the injury the way I go for the clinch seems...ameteury to me. I just come in straight ahead, no subtle weight shift, no fluidity, just a raucus charge at my opponent.
