Point is there if you wish too see it. whilst we are on this point, which medium lent itself to the clinch the best, cage or ring?
The cage, like the clinch, is the grappler's friend. Rorion Gracie created the 1st UFC and it was in cage for a reason. Rorion's family had been fighting for decades, in all sorts of environments. The first UFC did not take place on a mat or in a ring. It took place in a cage because that is grappler's best environment.

Clinching against the cage can be mind numbingly boring. I know how effective it can be, and I realize that there are a lot of subtleties to appreciate, but I can't even pretend that it is exciting. Take a look at Nik Lentz/Andre Winner to see how truly awful it can be. I'd rather watch LNP and someone grinding out a decision against the cage.
