Against Shogun and Machida, I see Randy catching them and taking them down and dominating. It might take a few minutes to catch em, but I dont see them KOing him quicker than he can catch em. He doesnt have a glass jaw.
Against Rashad, they'll probably trade takedowns. Rashad has better knees, randy has better hands and elbows. I think he decisions Rashad too.
Here's my take for what it's worth........I don't think Randy has a chance to get close enough to Jones to get any dirty boxing in. Jones is too fast for Randy, and Jones picks him apart all day until the brutal KO. Against Machida, I see much the same outcome as the Jones fight...Machida with his angles, and punches and kicks coming from nowhere, I see Randy ending up pretty much like Rashad did in his fight with Lyoto. Rashad...I think Rashad has better hands then Randy, by far...Rashad does to Randy what Chuck did to him twice IMO.....Ironically I see Randy's best matchup against Shogun, but Randy's strength, Dirty boxing in the clinch, also plays into Shogun's strength, the dreaded Muay Thai clinch, and I see Randy taking a nap in this fight too.
