    If the clinch is loosely worked or the other fighter is not a strong clincher, an uppercut can surely work. however, every time you attempt an uppercut (whether muay thai or dirty boxing, ect) you might be succeptable to elbows and knees. IMOP it would depend on the persons posture when clinching

    I always thought hooks were better in a clinch cos elbows are in the way if you want to uppercut.

    What makes Uppercuts from the clinch difficult is that your opponent has hold of you, and can control your body movement to varying degrees, depending on when you try to punch. Its a good technique to practice, but if you can't master it in the gym environment you don't want to use it in a fight. But you'll never know if you can do it if you don't train with it, so definitely give it a try.
