Knuckle Up #414: The Jon Jones Juke-a-Rama, Fight Night Fury of the Also-Rans + Dana's Russian Play

In Round #414 KNUCKLE UP host and unrestricted free agent of change EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Solid State"] sidesteps both an immediate breakdown of UFC FIGHT NIGHT, as well as the upcoming UFC 174, and goes right for the throat of the forest everyone else has been missing but for the trees, to mangle a metaphor: the JON JONES 360-degree trolling of ALEXANDER GUSTAFFSON. Masterful without being moronic, mean without being spiteful, Jones, Robinson will claim, is playing THE MAULER, Mauler Nut Jumpers, casual MMA fans and all and sundry for the fools that the overly earnest are liable to be. All while training like murder was the case that they gave him.And after that? He then delves deep into why ROSS PEARSON needs to man up, why DIEGO SANCHEZ needs to slow down, why BENDO's surprised no one who's been paying attention, the real reason BRYAN CARAWAY is hated and much much more. And less. A lot of less too.
