MMA Tete-A-Tete: Kid Nate & Eugene S. Robinson talk GSP's return, Cung Le, more

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 Georges St. Pierre and his problems finishing, Cung Le and his unusual style and more UFC and MMA related topics.

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 critics say Georges St. Pierre can't finish. Is that going to be his biggest problem when he walks into the Octagon against Carlos Condit at UFC 154 or is the GSP we know and love finished because he'll never be the same again after ACL surgery?

  • Cung Le will headline UFC Macau: Le vs. Franklin against Rich Franklin, is he too old? too small? too busy making movies? Is Cung's unique style a one-off or is he a true innovator whose influence will be seen again and again as MMA evolves? What about other traditional martial arts based fighters like John Makdessi or Stephen Thompson? Are those guys a stylistic dead end or a sign post to the future?

  • And whatever else we feel like talking about. Post your questions in the comments and we'll get to 'em if we have time.
Enjoy!
