Knuckle Up 485: Eugene S. Robinson talks King Mo, Rampage Jackson, Shaq and flyweights

In this installment of Knuckle Up, host Eugene S. Robinson talks about the pain of seeing King Mo win and Rampage Jackson lose as well as a Shaquille O'Neal story no one wants to hear. Eugene also talks about UFC vs. Bellator and the Eddie Alvarez law suit.

EUGENE S. ROBINSON, host of KNUCKLE UP and a stranger to no one who knows hate, completes last week's crazy train missive on getting 86'd, the existential ramifications of sleeplessness and undernourishment, GEORGE CLOONEY, the empty feeling that came from watching KING MO win and RAMPAGE lose (as well as the underwhelming sensation of seeing GLOVER win), why flyweights need flyweight refs and the terrible sport killing stasis that comes from having bracket dominating athletes dominating their brackets.

Add to this the SHAQUILLE O'NEAL sex story that no one wants to hear and you've got a great show by a man who is not in his car, driving in his car, or standing in the middle of a parking lot at 2 in the morning wondering where it all went wrong.

Yup. Perfect.

Eugene S. Robinson host of Knuckle Up and author of Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking [Harper Collins], as well as A LONG SLOW SCREWknows for a FACT that you own NONE of his books. Which is why he is silently judging you. Watching. Judging.

Oh, and Knuckle Up is brought to you by our sole sponsor: SkullGame.com: an expression of bellicosity universe-wide.

Whatever.

KNUCKLE UP! [Free t-shirts to anyone caught on video screaming this while they're being arrested!!!]

It's a sunny ride through a shady place. Enjoy.
