Do you guys really believe he could keep him there? It won't look much different then as Rampage got him down for 2 seconds. Right back up
That is a very clear possibility, but one of Randy's strongest points in his ground game is taking his opponents hips away from them. It doesn't matter who you are, if you can't use your hips on the ground then you are pretty much stuck till the guy on top says otherwise. I don't see Randy being able to posture up and drop bombs, but I think he could control Machida on the ground if he manages to get him there. Again, big if.
