Knuckle Up #406: Red Hot Chili Peppers Suckitude, Diaz-Silva, Diaz-White + the Pain of Knowing it All

In Round #406 KNUCKLE HOST and hostile enemy force EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "SLOW DIVE"], due in large part to repeat requests for explanation and on the occasion of a relatively dead cage week goes into some depth regarding the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS and how his liver curdles every time he sees ANTHONY KIEDIS sitting in his seat cage side. Add to this a philosophical inquiry into the onus of authenticity in the arts, real fakes vs, fake fakes, why BENSON HENDERSON correctly pegged the PETTIS-MELENDEZ faux kerfuffle, the genius of ANDERSON SILVA-NICK DIAZ and why it's a fight NO ONE WILL EVER LOSE, and finally NATE'S fight to the death with The Bald Guy.Plus he goes soft in interviewing the car lawyer from last show when he catches the guy sleeping in his car and his heart goes out to professionals and others of their ilk who have to live in convernments while at the top of their game.
