Knuckle Up #370: CroCop Is Back? And? Plus UFC FN & why Manuwa killed us

New, 12 comments

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to UFC FIGHT NIGHT CRO COP vs GONZAGA 2 and why to paraphrase the terrible band Metallica's song, none of this matters. Including the MANUWA fight that almost killed us with not kindness but bone-crushing tedium. There WERE, however, major power moves made from C to DC so there is that. And did we mention that he did the show drunk after being beaten up by a guy with a shovel? Well, he did.

In Round #370 KNUCKLE UP host, dipsomaniac, monomaniac, and maniacmaniac EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Soused"] notes the curiosity that has the CRO COP vs. GONZAGA fight being perfectly entertaining while paradoxically not being very entertained by it at all. Which is a compliment. However that MANUWA shit storm? Not a compliment. This, the DC's that became C's and a shorter show than usual what on account of him drinking and having been beaten with a shovel, not necessarily in that order.

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."
