Knuckle Up #423: Mostly MMA Dead Week so we go to Masters on the Mountain + get punched in the face!

New, 25 comments

In Round #423 KNUCKLE HOST + maker of the most sane men mad EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Spite"] forgoes his usual MMA meander and takes full advantage of MMA dead week to head to Truckee, California for the twice yearly, semi-super-secret Masters on the Mountain for a brush-up primer on SILAT, KNIFE WORK, AMERICAN PRISON FIGHTING aka JAILHOUSE ROCK, DIM MAK, SYSTEMA and a bunch of other stuff too heavy to even mention here. And in a tease to end all teases we'll tell you that much like Hunter S. Thompson and the HELLS ANGELS, ROBINSON mid-interview takes one for the MMA journalist team by taking one on the chin. If ever there was a GIF-worthy moment this was it and worth the price of admission alone. And the quote that completely summed up the weekend best: "I have eaten maggots to live and I love you all."

"The Eugene Robinson Show." He has two new records out now"SAL MINEO" with JAMIE STEWART from XIU XIU and STRANGER BY STARLIGHT...you should buy them. Or any of the ones by Oxbow for that matter.
