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 me again for this week's MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse. We look back at UFC on Fuel TV 5: Struve vs. Miocic, touch on some of the UFC's TV ratings issues but mostly we focus on our predictions for UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot.
Eugene's drunk with hubris after sweeping his Struve vs. Miocic picks and gets a little crazy this time.
I added the Tete to a video playlist I made of other UFC vloggers including Joanne of MMA Girls sharing their UFC on FX 5 predictions. To watch the whole playlist just hit play on the video above and you can use the FF button to skip ahead....but only AFTER you watch the full Tete with Eugene and I.
Remember to subscribe to MMA Nation on YouTube to get all of the Tetes as soon as they're uploaded and all our video playlists.
