KNUCKLE UP host and the world's last angry man Eugene S. Robinson manages in the jump cut edited Round #496 to eat a whole heaping helpful of hamburger helper and crow as he digests what it actually means for RICH FRANKLIN to take a dumper at the granite-like fist of star of stage and screen MR. CUNG LE. Well, you must crawl before you walk and crawl he does. Like Rich Franklin crawled out of the cage with the shredded remnants of his "career."
Add to this an on-location interview with Dutch fighter and BAS RUTTEN protégé GERMAINE DE RANDAMIE on the UFC jumping both feet first into the "suddenly" hot WOMEN'S MMA [we'd for sure not call this a comeback], her own personal journey to being in the hunt and how success will for sure ruin her.
But but but wait, there's more: an up close and personal with former editor in chief of GRAPPLING magazine, current editor of GLADIATOR MAGAZINE and editor for the new DAVID "TANK" ABBOTT autobiographical trilogy BEFORE THERE WERE RULES: BARBRAWLER...a rollicking thrill ride of attitude adjustment.
When 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 and host of Knuckle Up brings the sexy talk he brings the sexy. And the talk. And an unhealthy disregard for the collective weal and the trembling concerns that drive it well beyond well-meaning and into base cowardice.
More comfortable with hate than love, disinterest over indifference, and cold contempt over blind love his takes, should you dare to try to follow one, break down MMA to such a high degree of granularity you'll think you were talking to DANA WHITE. Just a really really smart DANA WHITE.
It's a sunny ride through a shady place. Enjoy.Oh...and remember to subscribe to MMA Nation on YouTube to get all of the shows as soon as they're uploaded, and all our video playlists.
