I'm back with another installment of the MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse. Eugene S. Robinson author of Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking is my counter-part for this edition.

Topics covered include:

* Rampage Jackson's departure from the UFC and his stated ambition to emulate Gary Goodridge -- a fighter who's suffering from CTE brain damage from taking too many shots to the head. Also discussion of the Quinton Jackson vs. Glover Teixeira fight that ended Rampage's UFC career.

* UFC 156 with a look at Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar, Rashad Evans vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Alistair Overeem vs. Antonio Silva and Jon Fitch vs. Demian Maia.
