Knuckle Up #447: UFC 166, the dawning of the age of AKA domination + the ineffable joy of saying 'I told you so'

In Round #447 EUGENE S. ROBINSON, KNUCKLE UP host and now winner of a silver medal at the U.S. Open, watches in wonderment and no small amount of smug self-satisfied belief as CAIN VELASQUEZ, DANIEL CORMIER and AKA, in total, have one of the winningest years ever. This plus the DIEGO SANCHEZ-ESQUE art of winning through losing, TJ WALDBERGER'S rapid dispatch, and one of the best cards ever as fighter folks figure out that eating begins with fighting great fights. And did he break down his U.S. Open win with the able assistance of BJJ great GARTH TAYLOR? He certainly did.
