Another installment of the MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discoursehas arrived. 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 Kid Nate's counterpart 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.

Please note that the "care/don't care preview" is in no way intended to disrespect the fighters in question and is merely our attempt to evaluate the marketing efforts on behalf of said fighters by the UFC and their management.

Today Kid Nate and Eugene discuss:

  • The sad passing of Shane del Rosario
  • The Ben Askren situation
  • The main event that is not: Anthony Pettis vs Josh Thomson
  • We don't mention it but this is the first time we've ever cared about every fight on a card, well done UFC!
  • How to pronounce Darren Uyenoyama vs Alptekin Ozkilic
  • The nature of wrong ("No man does evil") and Abel Trujillo's thirst to settle the score with Roger Bowling
  • Why I don't like Sam Stout that much
  • Bobby Green: low-blow specialist?
  • Nate mis-remembers Edson Barboza and blames him for Anthony Njokuani's homophobic anti-grappling comments
  • How is Mac Danzig still in the UFC?
  • Eugene's theory about Charles Manson
  • Nate tells a story of a Chicago loan shark/extortionist at a "client's" funeral
  • Is Urijah Faber too old to beat Michael McDonald
  • Is McDonald's celibacy really a choice he's making?
  • International height-ism
  • The main event that is and why people don't care as much as they should about Flyweights
  • Big John McCarthy in the cage with the Flyweights
  • And much much more!
