Knuckle Up #407: Lawler Lasers Brown, Green Gores Thomson + UFC on Fox 12 Definitely OVER Delivers

In Round #407 EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "SPORTING LIFE"], KNUCKLE UP host and serial sex commenter, is high…on life...and the promised possibility that MMA really can change things -- perspectives, points of view, possibilities -- while displaying the irreducibility of the human spirit. And shit. But what MMA does well is what it does best: let you delight in the misery of others. Specifically losers that probably deserved to lose backed with your misery over winners that even if they deserved to win, you still hate them anyway. So it went on UFC on FOX 12 as Robinson breaks down why LAWLER is a genius, RUMBLE might be deserving of serious consideration, character flaws and all, BOBBY GREEN crushed when he needed it most and a whole raft of rip-roaring chatter about fights that were just about everything MMA is supposed to be. BACKED RIGHT UP TO the borderline outright hostility that only a man whose lawyer lives in a car can bring to MMA commentary.
