If anything like I mentioned on another forum. Machida is gonna be swinging his hips to used his "one striking" style. Kicking Bones' legs but there is one problem.
For every kick Machida try to throw, Jones gonna back him up with a jab. Then he'll be stalling and thinking of what to do.
For anybody thinking Machida's other method is getting within clinch distance and striking. Let see.. unpredictable back fists, spinning elbows, push kick.
If you wants to see Machida's last known fight in the clinch distance. Re-watch the Rampage fight and you will see Machida is lost for ideas of what to do. Rampage just shutted down his game. Its wasn't like Couture's match where he had the distance to used his favourite weapon, leg kicks.
Once you eliminated his strike distance for kicks, he's not strong with his hands. Sure, you can point out his win over Rashad but Machida isn't the same after Shogun exposed his game and beat him in every category in both fight.
Machida will be a gate keeper soon. His run for the title is finish because we don't see any wrestling from him nor BJJ or anything that make a point saying.. 'Hey guys, I'm evolving.. with the sports' Instead, he'll keep being the same and slippin' on his pee juice.
Just my 2 cents.
