Host of KNUCKLE UP and non-sleeper EUGENE S. ROBINSON (the "S" stands for Style: as in he's "got too much for this planet") experiments this ROUND #480 with a kinder, gentler, witty and much more urbane approach to carving widely and deeply into the mix of Mixed Martial Arts while doing strafing runs over the THC-corpse of MATT RIDDLE, why STANN-SILVA should be a training film for any fighter who still likes to eat, FOX FALLON, the only transgender MMA fighter (that we know), how MARK HUNT is now in the hunt (presciently Robinson said this BEFORE the campaign went up and out to get Hunt to replace the injured Overeem against JDS) and really what it takes to break a man's jaw like STRUVE'S was. Mix in the usual mix stories darker and more disturbing than a night at the rectory with the rector (rector? He damn near tried to kill her) and you have MMA reporting at its finest.
Which means we're counting on youse to remember that shit NEXT year when voting comes up on that best MMA Journalist thing again. You remember it or we'll remember you.
