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.
