Welcome to If I Did It, the show where we grapple with PR kerfluffles from the world of MMA. This week we talk about Raquel Pennington’s plea for mercy going unheeded by her corner at UFC 224 plus Wiz Khalifa in MMA.
Join Kid Nate of Bloody Elbow and the Let It Roll podcast and Eugene S Robinson, from ozy.com and author of “Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You’d Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking” with your host, Alexei Auld, author of “7 Secret Sources of Inspiration: A Snappy Guide for Creative Procrastinators”. Collectively, the MMA Puncholes.
You’re the UFC. Raquel Pennington’s corner enabling her brutal beat down at UFC 224 generated mainstream attention, live and in public, if you will. How do you maximize the spotlight to your brand’s advantage? – 1:04
You’re The UFC. Jay Glazer’s glowing analysis of his student and platinum album rapper Wiz Khalifa’s MMA skillz resulted in Khalifa telling TMZ that he’s fight in MMA….if the money is right. Should you make it happen? – 10:21
You’re Bellator. Paul Daley booed the fight he was in…while he was fighting. Is there any way to make this a McNuggets mainstream moment? – 17:25
REGULAR FEATURE: KID NATE’S HEEL TURN – 22:35
