Knuckle Up #465: Eugene S. Robinson Grapples w/the terrible wonderful legacy of UFC 161

Host Eugene S. Robinson augurs into the ENTIRE card for UFC 161 + uncovers a Frankenstein monster of varying motivations and reasonings for why the card sucked/didn't suck.

Knuckle Up #465: Eugene S. Robinson, the KNUCKLE UP host, is still trying to sell his custom made shoe, dammit [https://www.aliveshoes.com/skullee]. We say "dammit" because you have no idea what it's like to have him hanging around the office trying to steal the shoes you DO have and then encouraging you to buy these when you suddenly can't find yours.

In any case, totally outside of that, KNUCKLE UP #465 pays witness to Robinson both breaking down why UFC 161 was miserably dispiriting, AS WELL AS why it was totally necessary regardless of how dispiritingly miserable it was.

Add to this up close and personal considerations of Jon Jones, the Roy Nelson-Uncle Tom brouhaha, and just more and generalized filth, you know. Just FILTH.

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], A LONG SLOW SCREW [Robotic Boot] and a play called THE INIMITABLE SOUNDS OF LOVE; A THREESOME IN FOUR ACTS [Southern] also sings for a band called OXBOW and appeared in Bill Cosby's Leonard Part 6, a Miller Genuine Draft commercial, and had his own TV show in Germany called? "The Eugene Robinson Show." And he is still about $100 from living in the juniper bushes by 7-11.
