MMA Tete-A-Tete: Nate and Eugene on Rampage Jackson and UFC 156

Kid Nate and Eugene S. Robinson of VICE's Fightland blog talk about UFC 156 and Rampage Jackson's departure from the UFC.

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:

* Rampage Jackson's departure from the UFC and his stated ambition to emulate Gary Goodridge -- a fighter who's suffering from CTE brain damage from taking too many shots to the head. Also discussion of the Quinton Jackson vs. Glover Teixeira fight that ended Rampage's UFC career.

* UFC 156 with a look at Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar, Rashad Evans vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Alistair Overeem vs. Antonio Silva and Jon Fitch vs. Demian Maia.

Enjoy!
