Knuckle Up #386: Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory UFC Fight Night, the lawsuit, Rampage + more

Bloody Elbow's literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to another night of fights grand and glorious but for endless commercials and a swirl of shit surrounding the UFC complete with a conspiracy scorecard and an analysis not for the faint hearted.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

In Round #386 the last incarnation of the son of David Ruffin and KNUCKLE UP host EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Sehr Gut"], goes for the throat in his quasi-conspiratorial breakdown of the who's, what's and wherefores of what no one else is telling you about the UFC lawsuit, RAMPAGE's possible return, the crushingly cyclical and cynical nature of business, why this most recent UFC Fight Night had great fights but soured the mouth and spirit and largely, despite a 2015 that's promising to start off strong, makes a plea for UFC billionaires who are very possibly overmatched in a perfect storm of Fox overlords and fighter underlings.

So sort of like the Hobbit. But with fighters.

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."
