EUGENE S. ROBINSON, host of KNUCKLE UP, boulevardier, and honorary Frenchmen in good standing delivers an altogether unusual show with ROUND #493…straight outta of TOULOUSE, FRANCE where he is on tour as guest vocalist with the French band L’Enfance Rouge and finds his longstanding query “ARE YOU THE TOUGHEST GUY IN THE VENUE?” answered aggressively in the affirmative by SYPVAIN [pronounced SIL-Vain] THIEULIN…a GRACIE BARRA purple belt, muay thai fighter, and journeyman MMA fella with a 2-2 win-loss record. Thieulin gives us a breakdown on the ins and outs of French MMA [no strikes on the ground] and why boxing is dying [too many strikes to the head]. Lightning in a bottle.

Back this up with Robinson’s take on the upcoming UFC on FOX, his stone cold picks and you have a show that makes up for what it loses in length with an untold depth. All from a place where the weather is so cold you could die just by LOOKING at it.

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], as well as A LONG SLOW SCREW is prone to making points with his hands. Specifically the portion of his hands that constitute a fist. If you know what we mean.

KNUCKLE UP! [Free t-shirts to anyone caught on video screaming this while they’re being arrested!!!]

It's a sunny ride through a shady place. Enjoy.
