New, comments

Knuckle Up #475: Eugene S. Robinson as "TrailMix: the cop with the groovy demeanor" covers Invicta, FC1, Bellator and UFC on Fuel TV 9 plus goes deep with Ref JOSH ROSENTHAL on HENDERSON vs. MELENDEZ and much more.

Eugene S. Robinson, host of KNUCKLE UP and recent double gold medalist, tries his level best to cover every single fight he's seen over the last few days up to and including the one in Albanian he watched at a Bodega along with the store's owner who spoke, curiously, not a single word of Albanian. From CYBORG's possibly misguided mishandling of her recent opponent he questions whether cash is enough of a motivating factor when you're fighting fights that are destroying your credibility one punch at a time plus MOUSASI vs. LATIFI, RANDY'S KID vs. ROSS PEARSON, AOKI and more. And, because he is that good? FACE TO FACE with Ref Extraordinaire JOSH ROSENTHAL who goes deep into the secret ref meetings, why we should cut the judges some slack, his expectedly even take on some of the bigger upcoming fights and how he almost died from staph.

Genius every single minute. At least he thinks it was genius. The 105 degree temperatures really made it very hard for him to know WHAT the hell he was doing but we humor him, we humor him.


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 has a play that's JUST OUT NOW, published by SOUTHERN called THE INIMITABLE SOUNDS OF LOVE; A THREESOME IN FOUR ACTS. You may not like plays but this one is about sexy deviant sex. Like dinner at CHAEL SONNEN's house or something.
