    Chasing him will be playing right into his hands. I thought his lands two fights would show that he can go on the offensive as well.

    How would you reccomend one go about fighting Machida? (Not a sarcastic question, I haven't seen many fights of his myself).

    Silva won't be pressured into going after anyone who is not hurt - he proved that for 2 fights strait (before Forrest came after him). Dana was so pissed about Cote and Silva stuck to his style for 5 rounds the very next fight (pissing Dana off even more).

    I think Arm Spin is saying if we had two super conservative counter strikers who refused to change their style, the winner would have to go to the guy who came forward

    Clinch work is where I believe Machida can be neutralized and placed in difficult situations.

    I guess that's what Randy thinks, but I think it would be hard to get him in that position - he'd hit you and it would be hard to close the distance.

    I thought Rampage was a real threat with his great chin and solid wrestling and of course, I am looking forward to seeing him fight Shogun very much (more than any other scheduled fight at the moment).

    Yes you're going to get hit coming in, it's a fight, that will happen. Head movement, footwork, ring generalship, that's what it will take in order to cut off the cage and corner the mysterious Machida. Once in the clinch, it is important o work effectively. With his judo back ground, Machida could use the position as an advantage himself. I'd love to see Randy vs Machida, but I think the natural may be too old at this point.
