Another of our infamous and patented Care/Don’t Care Previews with me, Kid Nate and co-host extraordinaire 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 here.

As always with the Care/Don’t Care preview — the caveat — no disrespect is intended to the fighters. This isn’t a commentary on the skill, heart or entertainment potential of any fighter, just a commentary on the UFC’s marketing of said fighters and whether or not any anticipation has been built for the fight.

Today Kid Nate and Eugene discuss:

  • Tons of random crap before we even get started on the fights including a nazi up on 300,000 counts of accessory to murder, drugs and the usual uncomfortable sexual speculation
  • The collapse of the card (Nate incorrectly blames Renan Barao for the Dillashaw cancellation when it was TJ’s injury that killed the fight)
  • Marie Letourneau’s forbidden love for a student (Valerie Letourneau is on the card, see the connection?)
  • Joe Riggs and the art of shooting yourself while cleaning a fire arm
  • The alleged “famous in Montreal” celebrity status of Patrick Cote, whom Eugene may or may not have once hung out with
  • We bid on each fight on the PPV card to get to the magic $65 number
  • How much better John Makdessi vs Abel Trujillo would have been than Makdessi vs. Shane Campbell
  • The nature of GICTS (Guy I Can’t Trust) and how you can’t pick ’em and can’t pick against ’em, in this instance C.B. Dollaway
  • Hating Michael Bisping but still kinda liking him
  • Whether or not Rampage Jackson is so shot that Fabio Maldonado has a chance
  • Will losing to Demetrious Johnson enhance or diminish Kyoji Horiguchi?
  • Much much more
