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.

Topics addressed include;

  • The unpredictability of Derrick Lewis
  • Our sincere apologies to Chico Camus for getting him mixed up with Chris Cariaso last week
  • Sergio Pettis and is the UFC giving up on him?
  • Best wishes to Donna Shalala who just had a stroke
  • Rose Namajunas: GICT (Gal I Can’t Trust)?
  • Is the Fox Sports 1 portion of the show worth Eugene making a 45 minute drive since the rest of it is available on Fight Pass?
  • A hair raising yet unfinished tale of living with a speed freak, the underage girls he brought home and attack of the zombie base heads
  • Shawn Jordan: GICTA (Guy I Can’t Trust Anymore)?
  • Is Rashad Evans too rusty to beat Ryan Bader?
  • Whose tears were more damning: Alexander Gustafsson or Daniel Cormier?
  • The academic conspiracy to deny Hitler’s escape from the bunker.
  • Much much more

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.
