Knuckle Up #376: UFC 184, the Art of Digging Down Deep, Being Too Smart by Half

New, 29 comments

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson of http://BloodyElbow.com lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to UFC 184 and the realization that though he actually for the first time in a long time bet actual REAL money on a fight, the fighter's loss, along with his cash, marks the genius of fighting as sport in a way that no other sport does.

In Round #376 KNUCKLE UP host and voted least likely to do you a solid or lend you a loan EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Strident"] finds himself fully recovered from the February of his discontent and fully invested in UFC 184 and its various story lines that try as they might can't convince anyone with a brain that works that anything else is going on right now other than ROUSEY v. CYBORG. Plus: thrill as he liberally craps over JOSH, MARK, GLEISON, HOLLY and a few others despite the fact that he thinks the UFC today is proof positive that the the future holds more bright spots than bad. And shit.

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 (and yes, a Cosby story is in the works), a Miller Genuine Draft commercial, and had his own TV show in Germany called? "The Eugene Robinson Show."

And Eugene says "My only regret is that Charles Schulz didn't live long enough to fashion a character after me named "Crappy" who constantly reminds everyone that death is around every corner and...well, that's it really." Just like this.
