Knuckle Up #391: the Good, Bad + Ugly of Every Fight You Saw This Past Weekend. Sort of. Plus: interviews

New, 34 comments

Bloody Elbow's literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" perspective to the horrible, average and stellar of this past weekend's explosions of fights and fight-related goodness. Plus real live interviews. And shit.

In Round #391 KNUCKLE UP host and noted contrarian EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "S"] yanks the blankets off of why the BONNAR-ORTIZ match-up was the worst piece of shit what he has ever seen, why neither of those guys have any business being in the business anymore, why ELLENBERGER got what was coming to him, MARK HUNT's stud status not at all in doubt even with the worse walkout song in the world, WSOF and the failings of WSOF, and why getting parts of your body punched off can be great for business.

Add to this live couch interviews with President of East Bay Rats Motorcycle club TREVOR LATHAM on the occasion of his upcoming ANARCHISTS vs. COMMUNISTS December 6th fight AND the man himself HECTOR "EL MATADOR" FAJARDO, judo black belt and facing his next MMA try in the next few days, who thinks he has an answer for those who think "sport BJJ" is ruining MMA.

Yeah. Because we're that good.

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."
