MMA Tete-A-Tete: GSP vs. Anderson Silva, Nate Diaz, Rockhold vs. Larkin and more with Kid Nate & Eugene S. Robinson

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 the negotiating strategies of Georges St. Pierre and Anderson Silva, Nate Diaz' chances to take a UFC title and Luke Rockhold vs. Strikeforce.

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. Subscribers are the only ones who can watch us shoot these things live.

Topics covered include:

  • Lorenz Larkin's attacks on Luke Rockhold and the whole final Strikeforce situation -- is it even in Rockhold's interest to fight on the final SF card?
  • Nate Diaz as potential UFC champ with commentary on the paranoid world view of team Cesar Gracie. Eugene makes the case that AKA is the far more paranoid gym. With a digression into rehab for fighters failing marijuana tests
  • The negotiating strategies for GSP vs Anderson with Eugene making a case for Nick Diaz vs. Anderson as the more interesting fight
Enjoy!
