Knuckle Up #397: UFC x TWO, Story, Nelson, Rory, Cung Le + Much More

Bloody Elbow's literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his one-of-a-kind perspective on BOTH of this past weekend's fights and covers them, the consistent theory of home town advantage/home town failure, the CUNG LE drug testing Kerfuffle and much, much more. All on not a single hour of sleep in the latest edition of Knuckle Up.

In Round #397 KNUCKLE UP host, friend, known associate and habitué of places dark and low EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "SLEEPLESS"] on absolutely zero sleep from his weekend sojourn at the semi-secret conclave called MASTERS ON THE MOUNTAIN, along with the concussive power with which he was struck on or about the head by 320 pound Russians, dives deep into BOTH of this past weekend's UFC fights. To wit: why every single Scandinavian fighter disgraced both himself AND the Shaolin Temple, what this might mean for GUNNAR going forward, how RORY MAC DONALD finally smelled the freakin' coffee, why LATIFI looks great in a doorman's uniform and much, much more. Like the slowly developing case of Friend of Knuckle Up [FOKU] CUNG LE and his present problems with both drug testing and the drugs he was being tested for.

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."
