Knuckle Up #357: UFC 189 + a query: how does it feel to be a sucker?

New, 200 comments

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to the greatness that was UFC 189 vis a vis seeing City Hall win again [because you can't fight City Hall], quick stoppages, why even MENDES was happy to see McGREGOR win, The Man-ness of MR. LAWLER and why the REEBOK deal was very possibly as ill-considered as having sex with ugly people. And oh yeah: nazis.

In Round #357 MAGNUM the illustrious KNUCKLE UP host, known associate, fellow traveler and gad-about we're mad about EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "SUCKAH"] yanks the blanket off of a fundamentally remedial rendering of how business in America works, why it mattered to CHAD MENDES + CONOR McGREGOR, why you shouldn't be mad, why the fights that were great WERE great and why the ones that smelled bad really also smelled great. This and unusually healthy serving of sex, smut and nazi conspiracy theory. 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."
