That's the point, though isn't it.
To fight properly takes practice, and most fights in club is under rules,and regulations. Getting beat up by a few blokes with bottles,takes a little sumthin sumthin.
Anyone who does Malaysian knife fighting will tell you exactly what is wrong with the clinch, as will a Taiji player. Clinch is good for one on one, but not so good when there are other factors. Grabbing the head and smashing it against concrete does three jobs....one, it takes the place of a good knee, two - it stops you having to get too close, and three - it prevents damage to your own body (as much as you can).
Just my opinion
