I am still interested to see if Machida CAN "hit Jones numerous times". His reach is 6'2", Jones is 7'1/2". As a counter striker it will be very tough to counter strike, when you can't even reach your opponent as they punch you in the face. He has a shot due to his unorthodox style, but I don't know if I would go so far as to say he WILL do damage. More like, he MAY do damage.

Either way I am excited to see what happens.
