Replacing rear exhaust, do I need a clamp?

I am replacing my rear exhaust pipe with a direct fit one. The old one came off fairly easily with me having to gently cut through the exhaust's direct fit connection to the Y pipe.

Now that I have the new exhaust on do I need a clamp to hold it together or is there some other method I should use? There was no clamp on the original that's why I'm a bit confused.

If so, is there a particular size? I have a 2004 X.

Thanks.

I have no idea what I'm doing but I'm gonna do it anyway.

To be more clear, I used an angle grinder to slit the old pipe and used a prybar to peel the old exhaust fitting off. Couldn't tell if it was factory-coupled in any way but it definitely wasn't a welded or bolted joint.

Here is the replacement exhaust I used. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006ZXUNBM/

I am no mechanic but I am guessing there is not a need for a clamp if the original exhaust does not come with it. Even so, since you mentioned that you need to gently cut through the opening before connecting it to the Y-pipe previously? Then perhaps that might enable the new exhaust to fit in nicely without clamping.
