Knuckle Up #408: the crush of Irish Power, the return of MMA joy, Kogan v. Dana + Miller's Crossing

In Round #408 KNUCKLE UP host and the fighter of giants EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "SOPHISTICATEDLIKEHERBDEAN"] throws his hat in the air to celebrate the return of MMA to be Happy About, courtesy of aggrieved nation nonpareil IRELAND and the bandy-legged, shillelagh-toting Lucky Charms leprechauns that dwell therein. AND his love for them with or without their pots of gold and crescent moons. For? Singlehandedly showing an MMA-weary world what MMA at its most gutsy looks like. And this joy is doubled up on by the friend of KNUCKLE UP and Known Associate MIKE KOGAN doing battle with The Bald One over whether or not NATE DIAZ is a money-making needle mover. Plus how the JIM MILLER loss uncovers what is now emerging as a pattern in Robinson's fight picking with his score on undercards being damned near perfect while he's scratched on the last, like, three cards. Robinson blames society. We blame society's booze.
