KNUCKLE UP #298: UFC 203, WHY the Laughter Will Never Stop + Shifts in Standing for MMA Rankings in the LB, Baby!

New, comments

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to UFC 203 where with bitter and biting breakdowns he discusses the hubris and hamartia that infused one of the most stunning nights of fights in recent memory. Believe it.

IN Round #298, the tuxedo-wearing KNUCKLE UP host EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Suavecito"] laughs at the vagaries of fate as only a man on the wrong side of the clock can. OVEREEM gets a Congressional Medal of Honor award in his induction into the LB, WERDUM fights like he'd very much like to get one and CM PUNK talks like he forgot he was CM PUNK. And just for the record? Not ALL dreams need to be nurtured.

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

1] 7:01: ALABAMA ANGER

2] 8:52: RATHER DRINK WATER FROM A HOLLOW LOG

3] 30:34: HOW BADLY DO YOU SUCK? VERY.

4] 41:00: WHY DO PEOPLE I WANT TO KILL KNOW I WANT TO KILL THEM.

5] 41:30: FAT IS AS FAT DOES

6] 41:35: THE HONDA CHRONICLES

7] 41: 37: CASHING CHECKS. BREAKING NECKS.

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 breaking bread with the CHURCH OF SATAN? Oh yes.
