Knuckle Up #471: Eugene S. Robinson talks to surgeon of the stars about Jon Jones' Bones plus Chael & Mayweather misery

Knuckle Up #471: Host Eugene S. Robinson goes medievally medical on youse with DR. STEVEN G. BALLINGER, surgeon of the stars, about the raft of bullshit he's calling on others' contention that Jones' injury is anything other than an irksome annoyance. Plus: Chael, and Why, Mayweather, WHY?!?!?

Knuckle Up #471: Eugene S. Robinson's rolodex weighs a ton as he pulls in a phoner with an orthopedic genius extraordinaire about the mammoth inaccuracies regarding Jones' injury. Plus Chael redux and Mayweather pointlessness.

Eugene S. Robinson, host of KNUCKLE UP, goes deep, deep, DEEP into why any light heavyweights who were expecting any kind of respite at all from JON JONES' big toe can cut that shit out RIGHT NOW since DR. STEVE G. BALLINGER, orthopedic miracle man, sees this injury slowing BONES down about eight weeks total. And afterward? Despite all of the jeremiads and naysayers? WATCH OUT. Add this to the continued chapters of the cockroach-like genius of CHAEL SONNEN and the FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR. march toward meaningless and you have a show that's short, sweet, sharp and stunningly effective.

Believe it.

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.
