Knuckle Up #467: Eugene S. Robinson rampages on Rampage move, GSP's Jedi Mind Trickery, Jones V. Silva

Eugene Robinson unpacks the real politik of Rampage's move to Bellator, the mechanics of the Silva V. Jones Inevitability & UFC on Fuel TV 10. Bitches.

Knuckle Up #467: Eugene S. Robinson, the host/fist, walks around the ridiculously sublime arithmetic that made a man out of RampageJackson and why Bellator did it, the freakonomics of living under bridges and in carports, and why this signals the first major indication that the MMA mob war has begun in earnest. Back that up to GSP's attempts to telepathically create the reality where Chris Weidman does anything but LOSE against Anderson Silva, as well as Anderson Silva's real game plan versus the young and irritable Jon "Bones" Jones, and the breakdown, brief as it might be, on UFC on Fuel TV 10.

Which is to say: Werdum and Thiago Silva. Which you are recommended to place in your pipe and smoke.

And in the 209 two enterprising young men go "hunh?"

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 calledTHE 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, and a Miller Genuine Draft commercial. And he does not drink beer. And if he did it would not be Miller.
