Shogun didn't 'charge' Machida, he kept him in kicking distance and punished him with kicks. Counter-striking Machida actually.
Shogun's best chance is circling ideally away from the fences, He needs to avoid JBJ getting close and taking out his legs and beating him with cardio. If the distance closes early by either fighter, JBJ has the advantage.
If he Shogun charges - that's Jones' game - the clinch - piercing elbows/brutal knees - using his balance, agility, power for trip/slams to use his brutal GnP. Maybe if Shogun has some great game plan of baiting JBJ in to a submission - otherwise it'd be stupid to charge at Jones.
I think he's referring to the second fight. Shogun charged at Machida with a barrage of punches, more punches than kicks and knocked machida out cold.
JJ's advantage in the clinch is with his trips and throws, not knees.
Shogun will go berserker on Jones and attack with with a variety of different strikes, punches and kicks, he doesn't care about being taken down because he's so comfortable from his back.
His mistake in the first machida fight was being overly cautious of Machidas striking and not pulling the trigger and going for the kill. In the second fight, he payed no respect to machidas striking power and knocked him out.
He needs to do the same thing with Jones. Charge him over and over until he knocks him out, he shouldnt fear or worry about Jones striking at all. Its the GNP on the ground he has to worry about, since the take down is inevitable.
