so as for the typical boxing clinch that is out and so is infighting, but what about body shots?

Knees are more effective if you want to deliver hits in the clinch since they leave your hands up to help control your opponent, and they're stronger. In MMA the clinch becomes a worry for pure standup fighters because any Greco wrestler or judoka that gets you there is going to toss you all over the place.

Wait, you're asking about hitting to the body. You don't see them quite as much during standing, especially with the hands, because there are stronger hits to work with, and the matches don't last as long as they do in boxing, so there's less pay off. The liver is still a viable target though, and plenty of fights have been won off liver shots. Thai kicks to the ribs and knees from sidemount ftw.

Body shots (via punching) also force you to be in closer to your opponent. When you're close enough to throw those, you're close enough to be tied up in the clinch.

Knees to the body are great however.
