KNUCKLE UP #310: A Father's Day Chumping at UFC Fight Night Ottawa, the Limits of Luck + A Short Show to Boot

New, 3 comments

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to UFC FIGHT NIGHT OTTAWA, not an A-List card but non di meno a card full of requisite levels of career-ending drama along with our Father's Day Meditations on the UFC sale, the real value of $4.1 Billion, the Sorrows of Young/Old Fedor, and not a word at all about why CHRIS WEIDMAN was not holding Weidman the Younger instead ceding this duty to STERLING. This plus Nazis and a deep dive into demonology. Yup.

In Round #310 KNUCKLE UP host with the most anger issues EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Socialist"] goes into and at the show like an auction barker mostly on account of needing to rush off but the coverage is solid, complete, and not without high point moments of genius that involve Nazis, Fathers, the long road to the LB and all various and sundry things along the way.

And for the listener ON THE GO? The KNUCKLE UP TIME LINE.

1] 7:01: NO THROAT CANCER

2] 8:52: BUT MAYBE THEY'RE JUST SAYING THAT

3] 30:34: STILL WANT TO HELP OXBOW OUT? DO IT

4] 41:00: I NEED: NEED

5] 41:30: CAN'T TURN MY EYES FROM THE PAST

6] 41:35: $4.1 BILLION. BITCHES.

7] 41: 37: WHAT'S A POST-ZUFFA UFC LOOK LIKE?

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 goes into his terrible and twisted relationship with his father....just in time for Father's Day and for the first time ever
