first really noticed it during silva/franklin 1. the fear in franklin's eyes and how he couldn't get out of it was a major wow moment.

It used to be a trademark of the Chute Box fighters back in the day. Anderson used it with great success in his early UFC days and Wanderlei absolutely destroyed Cung Le's face with it.

Such a brutal technique when done correctly Unfortunatly it's dangerous with all the wrestlers around these days :/

Barely anybody in MMA has a good clinch. Anderson has a great clinch. When clinching in MMA you want to have control of the opponents neck whilst keeping your body as far away from theirs as possible (think of it like a Thai Clinch sprawl), good reach is essential.

Yeah I just think Anderson hasn't came across an oppertunity yet. Silva's really an "oppertunist". He uses any skill if it appears to him. He doesnt ever really set up his work, he just waits for the oppertunity to arrive and then he takes it. Franklin obviously had a hole there and Anderson jumped right on it with one of the most controlled Thai Clinches seen in the UFC. Franklin couldnt do anything to break it.
