Knuckle Up #449: the Weidman-Silva wind up, Kongo-nomics + the glory of being #1 in the world in BJJ

In Round #449 EUGENE S. ROBINSON, KNUCKLE UP host and WORLD CHAMPION, goes deep, ever so deep, into the altered reality that was/is the IBJJF WORLD MASTERS where he secured a Gold Medal and a #1 world ranking, be-yotch-iz. While ROBINSON is amusing in defeat, in victory? When you factor in the gloating, the bitter recriminations, the dark mutterings and the playing out of a variety of revenge scenarios well let us just say, he's easier to live with when he loses. On top of that he glides and rides through the masterful march up to WEIDMAN-SILVA, CHEICK KONGO and the UFC-BELLATOR Proxy War, and why VELASQUEZ-DOS SANTOS will have as its final outcome someone whose career is done.

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], A LONG SLOW SCREW [Robotic Boot] and a play called THE INIMITABLE SOUNDS OF LOVE; A THREESOME IN FOUR ACTS [Southern] also sings for a band called OXBOW and appeared in Bill Cosby's Leonard Part 6, a Miller Genuine Draft commercial, and had his own TV show in Germany called? "The Eugene Robinson Show." And in a weirder moment yet? Just after ROUND #451 wherein he called Reality TV a "garbage scow" he gets offered? A reality show, natch. And his response: "if it pays and I don't have to eat POOP on camera, YES!!!"

And on top of that? JOE KAVEY [0-24] is pissed off with him.
