Knuckle Up #426: Why UFC 171 restored MMA fluidity + faith. Plus: how Miles Jury enrages + semi-related sex chatter

In Round #426 EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "SkullGame"] KNUCKLE UP host and collector of lost sheep rediscovers his long-lasting love and affection for what MMA can be and was all while exulting in his financial windfall from putting his money where his mouth is and the fine-tooth comb examination of HENDRICKS v LAWLER, OSP + the VON FLUE special, SHIELDS v LOMBARD and most significantly why watching MILES JURY fight inevitably involves words like "technical" and "precision" which are really just other ways of saying you need a good accountant and that accountant is Jury OR you are going to get a beer. Add to this Tales from the Swinging Lifestyle why ANDERSON SILVA + GSP's sacrifice's are messianic in nature and other general threats and a few hard, hard friggin' truths.
