Knuckle Up #415: A Cavalcade of UFC Berlin/Sao Paulo, Munoz, Mousasi, Fabio, Stipe

New, 25 comments

In Round #415 KNUCKLE UP host and merchant of venom [sorry, Ricky Wayne] EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Stun-NAH"] lays out in no uncertain terms that to be a member of a Lost Battalion you must very clearly have been IN the battalion and with an eye toward the now ex-MARK MUNOZ, the very ascendant GEGARD MOUSASI, and a whole raft of those rocketing up the charts or plummeting down them, he holds no prisoners and will downright hurt your feelings. We mean if you had feelings. Which we know you don't because you're so hard and cool and all.Add to this some ur-theory of steroids in MMA, new production value, some not-even-that-deeply-disturbing personal revelation and an open admission that the clusterfuck that was 2 fights on 1 night meant that he did not see ALL the fights but will only talk about the fights he DID see. And, yes, it's this level and kind of honesty that befits the MMA journalist of the year 2014.
