Knuckle Up #410: UFC 175, the Larry Holmesing of WEIDMAN, RONDA'S 'limited' options + Interviews, Jack!

In Round #410 KNUCKLE UP host and man with the mellow hair EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "SILENCEOFTHELAMBS"] stumbles on the realization that fans and foes alike of the estimable CHRIS WEIDMAN have conspired to create of the man, whole cloth, MMA'S first LARRY HOLMES: supremely talented, significantly under appreciated. And if there's one way for the Young Mr. Weidman to avoid this fate? Robinson's got the answer and it rhymes with "legacy." Actually, the word was "legacy" so we kind of screwed THAT up. And what can be said about RONDA ROUSEY fighting every fight but the one fight she should be fighting that hasn't already been said about the UFC getting every golden goose egg that can be gotten from that particular goose? Plus LIVE interviews with AKA's bantamweight badass SHAWN BUNCH and in the spirit of discovering tomorrow's stars today, HECTOR "EL MATADOR" FAJARDO on the occasion of his MMA debut.

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."

If you have troubles watching the vid on this player, watch it on YouTube. [Click "LIKE" when you do.]

ALSO: want to follow him on TWITTER? God knows why but here: eugeneSrobinson

OR: watch his video on why STING sucks so much, so thoroughly and why he loves him anyway

And did we mention our sponsors? Skullgame.com? Of course, we just did. And now you should. Buy what they peddle. Like what Eugene got here from MARDUK and which he will be trying to get him to peddle widely and, well, widely.
