Knuckle Up #464: Knight of KNUCKLE UP and Host Eternal Eugene S. Robinson goes out to Vallejo this past weekend to check out the first of what seems like many TEAM CESAR GRACIE proteges and their first big swings at MMA promotions with Gilbert Melendez's solid take on amateur MMA. On the day of the night where Nick Diaz's first promotion hits. Fad or lasting trend? Unknown but when considering FABER'S MMA Combine it seems someone or someones are calling bullshit on there being no second acts in American lives.
And outside of the 3000 degree heat in Vallejo? And chatting with GIL's DAD about KNUCKLE UP? And Jake Shields about Robinson's continuing efforts to gin up a fight with Herschel Walker? A tease of the done and completed Jon Jones interview with an interview shocker and a minor league meditation on Anderson Silva.
No bad for an off week. Not bad at all.
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 that's without even mentioning all of the porn he's been in.
And did we mention our sponsors? Skullgame.com? And have you bought a shirt yet? Shame is what you should be feeling if not.
