Knuckle Up #431: Where talk turns to steroids, steroids, losing + more steroids. Plus Machida v. Mousasi

In Round #431 EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Spite"], KNUCKLE UP host and Known Associate, uses the occasion of him finishing out of the money at his first BJJ competition of the season and trundles headlong into a surgical examination of competitive sports' love of steroids and other generalized and general performance enhancement and how the THIAGO SILVA contretemps is all but inevitable from a biochemical perspective. Added to this he throws in a tearjerking addition from a Mexico City Olympian and of course, the obligatory blaming of society and everyone else for his failure to bring home anything other than a bronze.
