Please note that the "care/don't care preview" is in no way intended to disrespect the fighters in question and is merely our attempt to evaluate the marketing efforts on behalf of said fighters by the UFC and their management.

Today Kid Nate and Eugene discuss:

  • A long unbroken series of "don't care" fights on the prelims
  • Eugene's misapprehension that Dennis Bermudez -- he of the 5 fight winning streak -- is in danger of being cut
  • Kevin Gastelum's fire inside the Octagon vs. Rick Story's proven bad-assery
  • OSP vs Krylov and the quiet prejudice of low expectations
  • Some of the awful people Eugene is willing to claim as friends including a professional corporate narc and a former Under-Secretary of Defense in the first second Bush administration
  • Kid Nate teases but doesn't tell his Ketamine anecdote
  • Jake Shields and steroids and Jake's future outside the UFC
  • Eugene's inexplicably hilarious "guy getting the Joe Silva cold shoulder" voice
  • Diego Sanchez, stevia and saliva and which one works and which one is an herbal sugar substitute
  • Eugene's grudge against Carlos Condit for his "unvalorous" behavior against Nick Diaz
  • Eugene's skeptical cop voice
  • Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler -- 'nuff said
