Knuckle Up #425: UFC Fight Night 39, Bellator 113, the joy of the dig deep, BJJ chicanery + an epic [?] surprise

In Round #425 KNUCKLE UP host and acknowledger of the fact that you can't spell HOST without HOSTILE EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Stevedore"] goes into the SHOGUN-HENDO to-do, the ramifications for a division virtually calcified under JON JONES, the MALDONADO + DOLLAWAY do-to's, the extra-special satisfaction that comes from seeing a man, a fighter dig down deep, EMMANUEL NEWTON, BJJ "belts-by-webcam" controversy and a surprise that will only be described here as quasi-epic and possibly totally underwhelming for anyone other than the erstwhile Mr. Robinson.And just in case you were listening JUST for this: this edition is NAZI-mention-free. Well, outside of THIS mention. Which technically makes the show not NAZI-frei at all. And see what we just did there? Free = Frei? Man, we are just THAT good.
