Knuckle Up #420: No celebrating in Mudville tonight as Jon Jones readies for his Waterloo + UFC 172

In Round #420 KNUCKLE UP host + Known Associate EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "See I Told You So"] warns against the irrational exuberance that marks JON JONES recent V for Victory moment over GLOVER TEIXEIRA and pisses all on the parade by noting with no lack of alacrity that the MAULER, a possibly broken approach to coaching courtesy of GREG JACKSON, continuing physical maladies and big giant holes in his striking game are reason enough to sound the alarms for lovers of his meteoric rise to the top and desire to stay there. Add to this the milk cartoning of PHIL DAVIS ["have you seen ME recently?"], the Eddie Haskelling of LUKE ROCKHOLD and the moving from the DON'T CARE column to the CARE column for a one MR. CHRIS BEAL and you have a genius night of fights to remember.Oh, and did we mention our guest host GREG PUCIATO from DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN? We just did.
