MMA Tete-A-Tete: Nate and Eugene make their picks for UFC 155, Liz Carmouche and Tito and Cyborg

In this edition of the MMA Tete-A-Tete Kid Nate and Eugene S. Robinson make their picks for the UFC 155 undercard, discuss the significance of the UFC's first openly gay fighter and the unlikely bromance of Cris Cyborg and Tito Ortiz.

SORRY THE AUDIO IS OUT OF SYNC AT THE BEGINNING. Not something we can fix but it gets better as the video goes on.

Also both Eugene and I spaced on Jim Miller coming back to beat Melvin Guillard. We regret the error.

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.

Today's episode is sponsored by Machine Works Jiu Jitsu of San Leandro, California thanks to Jeremy Atkins for hosting the shoot in his most excellent gym!

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:

* Cristian Santos' decision to hire Tito Ortiz as her manager

* Liz Carmouche, the first openly gay fighter in UFC history

* The UFC 155 undercard - we make our picks for all the fights on the card

Enjoy!
