MMA Tete-A-Tete: Nate & Eugene on UFC 162, Mayweather, Carwin, steroids, lawsuits and more

Kid Nate and Eugene S. Robinson author of Fight! look ahead to UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman, UFC on FX: Belfort vs Rockhold and look back at the career of Shane Carwin and Floyd Mayweather's underwhelming Showtime PPV debut. We also discuss Eddie Alvarez vs. Bellator and the usual litany of off-topic digressions.

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 Askingis 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:

  • Eddie Alvarez vs. Bellator: so much ugliness, so many costly mistakes;
  • Cris Cyborg & the mad genius management of Tito Ortiz: post the best metaphor for Tito's management style in the comments and win a t-shirt;
  • UFC on FX: Belfort vs Rockhold: Eugene thinks Rockhold is a hungry, angry starving lion and Vitor is a TRT-fattened calf;
  • UFC 162: Chris Weidman vs Anderson Silva: is Anderson getting into the kid's head by blowing off the media events this week?

Enjoy!
