UFC 184 Care/Don't Care Audio As always with the Care/Don't Care preview -- the caveat -- no disrespect is intended to the fighters. This isn't a commentary on the skill, heart or entertainment potential of any fighter, just a commentary on the UFC's marketing of said fighters and whether or not any anticipation has been built for the fight.
Today Kid Nate and Eugene discuss:
- Is Cat Zingano the biggest threat ever to Ronda Rousey?
- Hitler in Argentina, Adolph Eichmann and the whole banalty of evil thing Hannah Arendt was on about
- James Krause bitching about the UFC Reebok deal and Eugen's new-found "care" for Krause as a fellow malcontent
- Ruan Potts and the value of a HW with a propensity for getting himself KTFO'd
- The sad fall of Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto
- Loaning money to prostitutes and revenge porn as a lever to get the money back
- Hey Mark Munoz, it's time to go
- The estimated cash value of each fight on the main PPV card
- Holly Holm, phenom or hype?
- A bonus 17 minutes at the end dedicated to jabber about random sex, drugs and violence related topics
