Knuckle Up #436: Chris Weidman v. Larry Holmes, the Lost Battalion's call to duty for Anderson Silva + UFC Fight Night 34

In Round #436 KNUCKLE UP host, pompous prick, aggressively non-stop self-promoter and tango dancer EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Suspect"] dissects the week and the revelations following ANDERSON SILVA's dismasting, the nation's turn for the ugly in regards to the champion CHRIS WEIDMAN and the curiously conspiratorial silence on the nature of the UFC's failure to promote Weidman's "All American-ness" as well as his atrocious and addled picks for UFC FIGHT NIGHT 34. Add to this the fact that SAFFIEDINE v. LIM was probably one of the most perfect archetypes for a fight that neither ended by a knockout nor a submission and you have a roundly and soundly delivered shot to the head for fans of MMA and guys in their underwear talking about MMA.
