Knuckle Up #416: UFC 173, Barao Breakdown, DC v. Cap'n Ahab, Brawler Lawler + Post-TRT Times

In Round #416 EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Stunner"], KNUCKLE UP host and finder of lost souls, sings the praises of challengers fighting like champions and champions struggling with the overwhelming evidence in evidence that they're no longer the men they once were. To wit: champions. So from watching BARAO come face to face with the eventuality of his failure, LAWLER digging down deep, and HENDO getting the heave-ho, Robinson not only forgets on several occasions the last name of the man who has guaranteed he should not be forgotten -- T.J. DILLASHAW -- but covers the philosophical spread concerning DANIEL CORMIER's possible invincibility, ELLENBERGER's stumbles and much much more.And not a word about men's synchronized rhythmic gymnastics or nazis.
