Welcome to If I Did It, the show where we grapple with PR kerfluffles from the world of MMA. This week we look at the UFC’s decision to not re-sign union organizer Leslie Smith while bringing controversial NFL veteran Greg Hardy into the fold. Right after the show, watch the same team tackle PR kerfluffles from the worlds of media and politics on If The Shoes Fit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpkNy…
Welcome to IF I DID IT where we analyze and solve PR kerfuffles from the MMA world (insert hand gesture) not beyond.
Kid Nate of Bloody Elbow (who has a podcast about rock and roll history) 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” join host Alexei Auld for another episode of If I Did It. Collectively, they make up the MMA Puncholes. Join them right after this show for If the Shoes Fit, where they go beyond the world of MMA.
