Wow. I honestly didn't remember it being that
bad. That's pathetic. The majority of those clinches were entirely initiated, as the video states, by Ward. Kessler grabbed too in a couple, but basically all of them were to stop Kessler from being able to do anything.
You can punch inside if you are the one being held, not if you're the one holding as Ward was. Very strong Ward bias from ref Jack Reiss.
