Knuckle Up #388: Nate, Kogan, JDS, Lost Battalion-age, 2 UFCs, lawsuits, Reebok + how horror is here to stay

New, 22 comments

Bloody Elbow's literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" perspective to the two most recent UFCs, the lawsuits + losses that framed them, how despite winning JDS still soldiers on as the head of the Lost Battalion, why to live outside the law you must have your shit straight and much, much more.

In Round #388 KNUCKLE UP host and God's Lonely Man EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Shank"], rants apoplectic at how TWO DAYS of wonderful fights and fighting could eventually be dragged down by "intangibles" as the UFC and associated parties drag defeat from the jaws of victory by turning buckets of infuriating lemons into even more rage inducing lemonade. From CIGANO's done-ness to MATT MITRIONE's not getting no respect, NATE DIAZ's confusions, KOGAN's...well you know, lawsuits, why America still hates winners, but just feels sorry for losers, DANIEL CORMIER, JON JONES and much, much more, like Nazis, a locus point for bad decision making all around.

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."
