They avoid his clinch like the plague.

Against Gustafsson Machida would be able to come in closer because Gustafsson does not have great top game yet. Evene Rua with his average footwork was able to land big punches against Gus imagine what the quick legged Machida could do.
Many of the exchanges in this fight were take some to give some, Shogun had success because he of his hard head and fearlessness. I think Machida will try to kick Gus a lot but when he gets close to punch, I can't see him taking too many counters. Which Gustaf WILL land.
