Knuckle Up #444: UFC Fight Night 32 + the undeniable but ultimately damaging allure of steroids, er, TRT

In Round #444 KNUCKLE UP host EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Sardonicus"] does a Socratic analysis of UFC Fight Night 32 while at first trying to ignore the stench of steroids coming off of it and then finally giving up the pretense and embracing the failure, in total, of what they represent: a fantasia of bullshit around athletic COMPETITION. Plus a breakdown of exactly how HENDERSON will ride out on his shield, how BELFORT still has dwindling options, why various elements of the U.S. military owe him an apology and why DANA WHITE's "accidental" invigoration of the UFC through strategic firings, while bad for certain fighters, is good for the sport in general.

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." He has two new records out now "SAL MINEO" with JAMIE STEWART from XIU XIU and STRANGER BY should buy them. Or any of the ones by Oxbow for that matter.

Alternatively, you could just read his article on Olympic gold medalist and early UFC fighter MARK SCHULTZ
