Knuckle Up #470: Eugene S. Robinson w/Germaine de Randamie on her UFC debut with Julie Kedzie plus Luke Rockhold nut jumping

Knuckle Up #470: Host Eugene S. Robinson does a phoner with Iron Lady GERMAINE DE RANDAMIE [since y'all were RIDICULOUS last time she was in house] about her crushing, killing + pending destroying of the great JULIE KEDZIE. Add to this a slack but spirited defense of LUKE ROCKHOLD and an exhaustive breakdown of UFC on FX8 with a special breakout on The HeadGame.

Knuckle Up #470: MMA Journalist of Next Year Eugene S. Robinson exults in his early adoption of WOMEN'S MMA with Dutch Phenom GERMAINE DE RANDAMIE and while he's at it gives a scattershot rendering of UFC on FX8, as well as why LUKE "RODNEY DANGERFIELD" ROCKHOLD will prevail in stunning fashion, and THE HEAVYWEIGHTS, always THE HEAVYWEIGHTS.

Eugene S. Robinson, host de most of KNUCKLE UP, chats up women's MMA rising star GERMAINE DE RANDAMIE about the credit owed to RONDA ROUSEY, her JULIE KEDZIE strategy and matters all and sundry. The segue from here to UFC ON FX8 is staggered and rambling, like Robinson himself would have been had he not been seated when heat exhaustion brought him low. Yeah. "Exhaustion." Plus an apologetic tribute to LUKE ROCKHOLD, ROY NELSON, MARK HUNT and the always entertaining HEAVYWEIGHTS.

And for the impatient, ADD-addled, afraid of their bosses...


1] Some Dutch woman...

2] ...talks about swimming + beating some other woman

3] Drinking a quadruple dose of something not meant to be consumed in quadruple doses

4] Not trusting TIBAU or DOS ANJOS. But betting on TIBAU.


6] tears

7] taking a real good look at your face

Dig it.
