Knuckle Up #455: Eugene S. Robinson reports from the frontline on The UFC-Bellator Proxy War of 2013

KNUCKLE UP host EUGENE S. ROBINSON in Round #455 breakdowns the invisible war and the not-so-invisible warriors digging in for a thoroughly brutal and bitter engagement for the very heart, soul and wallet of the future of MMA.

Knuckle Up #455: EUGENE S. ROBINSON ["S" is for "Sadist"] is, during the quiet before the MMA storm, meditating on the War of Secret Powers that's raging all around our oblivious heads as DANA WHITE and BJORN REBNEY and the UFC and BELLATOR play multi-level chess with fighters and fans in a game of winner-takes-all. [Maybe.] It's riddle-wrapped-up-in-an-enigma-swallowed-by-a-mystery time. And if this does not make sense to you now? Just stop while you're ahead.

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 in a weirder moment yet? Co-hosted with ESPN's STUART SCOTT a Superbowl fashion show in Tampa. [free t-shirt to whoever can find that video for us.] AND appeared on MIDNIGHT CALLER with GARY COLE. His latest movie Mother Mortar, Father Pestle just opened this past Thursday. Believe it.

And did we mention our sponsors? Skullgame.com? And have you bought a shirt yet? No? Perfect. We don't actually want you to buy one anyways.
