Another installment of the MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse has arrived. 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 Kid Nate’s counterpart for this edition.

As always if you enjoy this sort of gum flapping, subscribe to the MMA Nation YouTube channel. Subscribers are the only ones who can watch us shoot these things live.

If you have issues with the video embed here you can always watch it on YouTube.

Please note that the “care/don’t care preview” is in no way intended to disrespect the fighters in question and is merely our attempt to evaluate the marketing efforts on behalf of said fighters by the UFC and their management.

Today Kid Nate and Eugene discuss:

  • TRT, Steroids, PEDs, the NSAC, and the potential media PR disaster the UFC is courting by allowing the use of TRT by top fighters
  • The Lost Battalion of fighters like Rich Franklin, Josh Koscheck etc who’ve lost too many title shots but are still too tough for most guys to want to fight
  • Why we both care about Jason High
  • The Brian Ebersole vs Rick Story bout
  • Ali Bagautinov and the Russians are coming!
  • Will Josh Koscheck be cut if he loses to Tyron Woodley
  • Is Woodly a GIT (Guy I Can’t Trust)?
  • Rory MacDonald vs Robbie Lawler
  • Why we don’t care about Rashad Evans vs Chael Sonnen
  • GSP vs Johny Hendricks
  • Will Georges St-Pierre retire after this bout, win or lose?
  • A nightmare scenario in which Evans vs Sonnen is as bad as Rashad’s last two fights, goes 3 rounds and then GSP toys with Hendricks for 5 long rounds
  • And much much more!

Enjoy!
