KNUCKLE UP #277: UFC 208 + How to Exercise a Pronounced Penchant for Pissing on the Parade

New, comments

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to UFC 208 in a decidedly downbeat way that's actually totally counter to how a man who picked all but one fight correctly should feel. But there it is. So what's the stench-y problem stinking up the party? God only knows. Well God and you. Post-show. If you can make it through the Joy Division-esque battlefield of funk.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

IN Round #277, KNUCKLE UP host and hausmeiser EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Shutthefuckup"] wanders into the unraveling of UFC 208 while he wonders why with many reasons to be cheerful he feels anything but.

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

2] 8:52: INTENTIONALITY + SOMBREROS

3] 30:34: THE PARANOID NEGRO AT YOUR PARTY

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."
