Knuckle Up #366: The Hunt-Miocic Paradox, the Canelo-Kirkland conundrum + no sympathy for the Devil in Jon Jones

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to the appearance of MARK HUNT's EVIL TWIN, the one who doesn't fight so good, STIPE MIOCIC and the inevitability of his upward failures, how no matter how gifted CANELO is, he's not strong enough to eradicate last week's stink and last but not least The Lifeboat Theorem and how and why it was totally OK for us to realize that the boat was not big enough for JON JONES.

In Round #366 EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Straight Razor"], KNUCKLE UP host, voice of reason and the coffee you better wake up and start smelling, digs deep into the skid of sameness that marks a combat sport arena still reeling from a very, very, very bad Spring and intimations of an impending summer of shit with the unavoidable realization that the doldrums of "just OK" fights might no longer be the exception but instead the norm. Which is to say: maybe it's time to completely panic about the baseballizing of MMA. This, a critique of LIAM NEESON's direction in life, Nazis, how Eugene needs your help and much much more. Especially if by "much much more" you mean disturbing details done dirt cheap.

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."
