I think Wlad looks clueless in a clinch. (i actually wouldnt have minded seeing him against Ruiz, who i think would have a better than expected chance though i am sure i am in the minority). But realistically, would it be viable for such a little guy like Fitz and many otehr old timers to use these types of techniques against a giant like Wlad. Let us not forget that Eddie chambers was substantially bigger than Fitzsimmons and many from his era. I am not so sure any sort of Chambers example is relevant because of this.
