Knuckle Up #396: The Wonderful Horror of a Fighter's Life, Shields v. Ford, Celebrity Skin

Bloody Elbow's literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his one-of-a-kind perspective on what it actually means to be a professional fighter, JAKE SHIELDS v. RYAN FORD, the return of ANDERSON SILVA and how it inevitably leads to WEIDMAN no matter what anyone says or does, and DIAZ or no DIAZ plus TITTIES and the ramifications of them being seen by people who have already seen titties before.

In Round #396 the razor sharp, on point, straight edge, clean and sober KNUCKLE UP host EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "SERIAL KILLER"] sojourns deep into the darker philosophical ramifications of what it might mean to fill out your tax return with the word FIGHTER on the job description line while measuring it along the battle lines drawn by LENIN, the NAZI War Machine and 1970s' cinema. Followed by a segue into the JAKE SHIELDS v. RYAN FORD fumble, the ANDERSON SILVA INEVITABILITY, the American Fight Fan and the killing softly of CHRIS WEIDMAN, and the TITTIE-GATE accompanying discussions of what was or what was not on JENNIFER LAWRENCE and MIESHA TATE's phones and why no one is clamoring for his penis photos.

Or some such thing like that. If we'd been listening we'd know but we were watching LOVEBOAT reruns.

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?
