Knuckle Up #389: the morning line on UFC 181, MMA longevity + a take to enrage/engage on Ferguson, MO

Bloody Elbow's literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" perspective to the prequel to the sequel of UFC 181: HENDRICKS vs. LAWLER #2 with an almost fight by fight breakdown for all degenerate gamblers and touts, as well as the contrapuntal mentions of Nazis, narcotics and the fact that most, if not all, are missing the point of what just happened in Ferguson, Missouri.

In Round #389 EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Sublime"], righteous leader of the Church of KNUCKLE UP and fan of testicular fortitude does a down and deeply thorough think tank level examination of the odds on ends of what might be the possible outcomes of the upcoming HENDRICKS vs LAWLER to-do PART 2. Up to and including insider takes, handicapper insights and why this card is stacked with fights laden with all kinds of 2015 fistic significance.

Add to that a not-especially nuanced take on the shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, his cop friends' chagrin and the geo-political problems connected to unstable republics. All without having to read another one outside of this one.

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 (and yes, a Cosby story is in the works), a Miller Genuine Draft commercial, and had his own TV show in Germany called? "The Eugene Robinson Show."
