Sorry cry babies, Kid Nate + Eugene S. Robinson look ahead to this Saturday's UFC Fight Night Manila featuring Frankie Edgar vs. Urijah Faber in the infamous and patented Care/Don't Care Preview.

Another of our infamous and patented Care/Don't Care Previews with me, Kid Nate and co-host extraordinaire Eugene S. Robinson, author of Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking is here.

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:

  • Potentially a record number of "don't cares" on this card depending on how you score fights that get 1 care
  • Nate's threatened toothbrush mustache is AWOL
  • "The Anderson Silva of the lightweight division"
  • Stockholm syndrome
  • The legendary Georgia vs the Philippines rivalry
  • The decline and fall of Mark Munoz and allegations are almost but not quite made, insinuations however we've got
  • Insider info on Daniel Cormier's training for UFC 187 bout with Anthony Johnson
  • Costas Phillappou's many sins
  • A long digression about Matt Serra and Ray Longo
  • Is Urijah Faber done?
  • Can Frankie Edgar get the KO?
  • Much, much more

Enjoy!
