Knuckle Up #473: Eugene S. Robinson meanders through sorrow over the possible end of the 3rd UFC era courtesy of the harbinger of the end: UFC on FOX 7.
Host of KNUCKLE UP Eugene S. Robinson filmed this entire show on his phone. Hunh, who, what, why, how? Well, his $2000 computer was apparently not robust enough to handle it and so it goes: what once was new and vital and necessary all eventually becomes old, mordant and totally unnecessary and so it goes that a fight circumstance that should have seen him crowing, Nietzsche-style about how good he is due to the over abundance of his correct handicapping [ROMERO, DILLASHAW, MASVIDAL, THOMSON, CORMIER, MENDES], sees him instead grousing about UYENOYAMA, DIAZ, MELENDEZ and the limitations of earthly power.
Can't blame it on the judges, the refs, the weather or the crowd. So what's left? You. And some cold hard facts. You want jokes? Look somewhere else this week. You think ROBINSON is here to amuse you? Like he's a clown? Like he's funny to you? HOW is he funny to you? WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME HOW HE'S FUCKING FUNNY TO YOU?!?!? God. Joe Pesci, we hardly knew ye.
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 SCREW has a play that's JUST OUT NOW, published by SOUTHERN called THE INIMITABLE SOUNDS OF LOVE; A THREESOME IN FOUR ACTS. Buy it!
