Backing up v Backing up with a stiff jab thrown out = 2 different things.
Still, angles, angles angles..." If one wants to have a friend one must also want to wage war for him: and to wage war one must be capable of being an enemy." - Fr. Nietzsche 'On The Friend' Thus Spake Zarathustra

If the guy is shorter than you are and he comes in real close like that go ahead and throw a forearm onto his neck and push down, then blast some uppercuts into him. That's assuming you aren't allowed a real clinch. He'll change his mind about being there in a hurry.
Also, side stepping and throwing hooks is always good.

I'm not really sure I'm picturing what it is you're talking about. Clarify please?

I supose I havent really thought about trying to work with clinches on him. Usually I use my quickness and rotation while we are fighting inside, pop out every now and again and do a few 1-2s before we're back on the inside. When I get tired, I fall back to the ropes where I'm comfortable to take a rest.
Wish I knew how to clinch better though, seems like I've only been in 3-5 clinches my whole life.

I'm short and stocky so pretty much everyone that's any where near my weight class is taller than me, When I get in close I like to throw hooks and uppercuts to the body; kill the body and the head will die. I don't think trying to push my head down with your forearm isn't going to do anyting but expose your ribs and stomach to abuse. You might want to use it to push me away from you, but this idea doesn't really make sense to me.

I think what kintanon is suggesting is a more exaggerated movement, where you place your hand on the back of your opponents neck and push their head down to around waist level.
Haven't ever tried it myself, but it may be workable.
