MMA Tete-A-Tete: Nate & Eugene on the UFC contract & UFC on FX 8

Kid Nate and Eugene S. Robinson discuss the newly revealed UFC contract and the upcoming UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs Rockhold card.

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:

  • The general weakness of the UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs. Rockhold card
  • The UFC contract as revealed in the Eddie Alvarez vs. Bellator lawsuit -- is it a violation of the 13th Amendment? Does Alvarez have any chance to prevail? Is the suit really a proxy war for UFC vs. Viacom? Is Eddie Alvarez just a battlefield like Korea during the Cold War?
We also ramble over a number of off-topics like Black Flag vs. Flag, a possible Whipping Boy reunion, the time Eugene got in the cage with Chuck Liddell and more.

Enjoy!
