Knuckle Up #398: UFC 178, Cry Babies, HeadGames + Suddenly Your DNA Is Forever Changed…

Bloody Elbow's literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his one-of-a-kind perspective on UFC 178 up to and including the TEARS of TIM KENNEDY, how McGREGOR and DJ crush minds, championship calculus with a minor aside on RACE MATTERS on the latest edition of Knuckle Up.

In Round #398 Panamanian Strong Man and KNUCKLE UP host EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "SATISFRIED"] almost hasn't stopped screaming long enough to celebrate the genius that was UFC 178 and how it was a virtual model for what a good night of fights look like despite TIM KENNEDY's tears that focus on the STOOL and not the grabbing of the GLOVES, and because of the HELL...O brought to bear by DOMINICK CRUZ, CONOR McGREGOR's destruction of POIRIER's very DNA and DEMETRIOUS JOHNSON'S crushing of the same in CARIASO. And if you think some of the fighters in the L column tonight won't find their lives changed forever and ever? You weren't watching.

Eugene S. Robinson host of Knuckle Up and author of Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking [Harper Collins], A LONG SLOW SCREW [Robotic Boot] and a play called THE INIMITABLE SOUNDS OF LOVE; A THREESOME IN FOUR ACTS [Southern] also sings for a band called OXBOW and appeared in Bill Cosby's Leonard Part 6, a Miller Genuine Draft commercial, and had his own TV show in Germany called? "The Eugene Robinson Show."
