Hughes' sub game is pretty good, too.

Hughes has been in some epic fights.

I want to see Machida vs Rashad Evans.

I was just thinking of something that involved this, ok I don't ever expect this matchup to happen because I don't think the guy will be in the UFC much longer(I wouldn't expect it to happen anyways unless Machida lost) but what if Machida fought Houston Alexander and got KO'd? I would expect Machida to school him but hey it can happen if Houston got him in the clinch.

The thing with Houston though, is that he can't take a shot... at all lol. Houston would be so much better off if he actually moved his head in a less predictable pattern, you could totally see Irvin setting him up for the superman. I think even Lyoto could knock Houston out as he entered the clinch.

I just think Randy does the best work in the clinch, because he knows how to get there and he's all about pushing the pace. I truly believe he would pose the largest challenge for Machida.

Not to mention Randy is the king of awesome game plans in the first place, specially at LHW where he is actually one of the bigger guys. I could totally see it happen, but Machida would have to win the belt before Randy would be motivated enough to drop down and school him

Eh, Randy's good at coming up with gameplans but he's not always very good at exercising them. What good is theory without practice? Would be a great fight though.
