KNUCKLE UP #340: Ronda, Holly, the Zig of All Zags + UFC 193 on Trial, Conspiracy: Yes or No?

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to a show away from which he'd warn all remedial students of the MMA arts. Which is to say IF you are stupid please stop reading and just wait until other more sage commenters have explained it to you. Seriously. This think tank type stuff and it'll just hurt your head. What? Specifically the argument that pits the Grand Inquisitor against the Devil's Advocate over whether or not we should believe our eyes when our eyes are focused on the ROUSEY-HOLMS fight that saw a new champ "against all odds". Oh really....? Yes, apparently, but the arguments for and against need to made and the reality of it still remains that the best work is the one that seems the least LIKE a work.

In Round #340 KNUCKLE UP host and IBJJF World Champion EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Surprised? Not"], goes knuckle deep into UFC 193's jewel in the Don't Care crusted crown: HOLLY HOLMS v. RONDA ROUSEY and argues both sides, for and against the possibility that none of this was "against all odds" and while suckers are born every day, we don't intend to be one of them. And, oh yeah, Nazis.

And for the listener ON THE GO? The KNUCKLE UP TIME LINE.

4] 41:00: AND NOW THEY'RE LOOKING AT A SUPER LUCRATIVE TRILOGY

5] 41:30: HOW STRANGE

6] 41:35: DID NAZIS GO TO MALE PROSTITUTES
