I agree, Clay had solid striking and good take down defense. It was refreshing to see a guy who could actually defend take downs without getting pushed up against the cage for minutes at a time on the show. Some guys showed good take down defense, but that is their problem. They had trouble stuffing a take down without getting hugged against the cage, which resulted in them risking a potential loss because of still getting controlled. He managed to shrug the take down attempts off quite easily and he would be the one controlling the clinch against the cage when ever the fight would go there. It's a shame that he will probably have to drop out of the competition now. He showed a lot of toughness continuing on with that injury on his finger.
