MMA Tete-A-Tete: Old lions vs young lions, BJ Penn, Shogun Rua...Eugene and Kid Nate talk UFC on Fox 5

In this edition of the MMA Tete-A-Tete Kid Nate and Eugene S. Robinson discuss UFC on Fox 5 with a focus on BJ Penn vs Rory MacDonald and Shogun Rua vs. Alexander Gustafsson.

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:

  • The old lions (BJ Penn, Mauricio Rua) vs the young lions (Rory MacDonald, Alexander Gustafsson)
    Eugene and I are both old but we split in how we see these fights. Who will win? The lions of the future or the lions of the past?
  • The return of Mike Swick
  • The undercard -- which fights do we care about?
  • Jeremy Stephens vs. Yves Edwards/
    The return of the legally challenged Stephens prompts a discussion of "MMA Goon Culture", crime, violence and sport.
Enjoy!
