Robin Black returns to In The Fight this week and broke down a lot of the hot buzz words flying around the MMA world at the moment.
When Robin Black came on “In The Fight” in December, one of the things he and I talked about were the trends in MMA. Like all sports, MMA’s strategic tendencies come in waves.
In December, we discussed the rematch between Poirier and Mcgregor. Black’s analysis was spot on. He couldn’t have been more clear.
“If you want to know anything about the second fight, don’t watch the first fight.”
And so that’s what I proposed to Black early in this episode. Now that we have seen the two fight on different occasions, now what do we do?
“People change. Fighting changes.”
Robin has an incredible mind for combat sports. He processes, analyzes, and then explains to the general audience how things happen. Ultimately, Black has realized what it is he does for a living.
“My job is to enhance the viewing experience for the audience.”
Whether it be calf kicks… false narratives in MMA… breaking down UFC 261’s incredible knockouts by Kamaru Usman or Rose Namajunas… or looking ahead to fights like Michael Chandler vs Charles Oliveira and Nate Diaz vs Leon Edwards… Robin Black brings it.
