Knuckle Up #439: UFC on FOX 9 + a fight-by-fight analysis of why these fights left us empty, sad, drunk + abusive

In Round #439 EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Sic 'Em"], KNUCKLE UP host and known associate, back from his international man of mysterying, goes micro before macro here in analyzing why and how a great night of fights and fighters could leave a hardcore MMA junkie as unfulfilled as this night did. Part psychological, part historical, part pedagogical, the KNUCKLE UP analysis veers between in-depth analysis of the New York heroin trade of the 1970s, LARRY HOLMES, jet lag, PAT BARRYISM, and much, much more. A-Level KNUCKLE UP shit. Which is to say: not for the casual listener.
