MMA Tete-A-Tete: Kid Nate and Eugene Robinson talk Jones vs. Sonnen, interim titles and Benson Henderson's PR

Eugene S. Robinson, author of Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking joins Kid Nate for an MMA-Tete-A-Tete discussion of Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen on The Ultimate Fighter, Ben Henderson and whether or not interim titles should be defended.

I'm back with another installment of the MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse. Eugene S. Robinson author of Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking is my counter part for this edition.

As always if you enjoy this sort of gum flapping, subscribe to the MMA Nation YouTube channel.

Topics covered include:

  • The decision to book Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen as the coaches of the next season of The Ultimate Fighter and to book a Jones-Sonnen title fight on April 27, 2013.
  • UFC Lightweight champ Ben Henderson's recent controversy spawning comments and whether or not Ben is playing the media to build up his name and rep.
  • We handicap Henderson vs. Nate Diaz on UFC on Fox 5
  • UFC Bantamweight interim champ Renan Barao's decision to wait for injured champ Dominick Cruz to come back from ACL surgery rather than defending the interim belt.

Enjoy!
