Kid Nate and Eugene S. Robinson of BloodyElbow.com welcome a special guest Alexei Auld to launch a whole new show that's like nothing you've ever seen before....unless you've seen our other shows.

Since there's no UFC this weekend my 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 decided to try something new. Alexei Auld is a BE reader and MMA Nation viewer who's been in touch with some ideas for new shows and I really liked this one so we invited him to co-co-host.

The concept is "If I Did It" in which Eugene and I are presented with various MMA PR situations and asked how we would have handled it or what the fighter can do from here. Today's puzzlers include:

  • Should Ronda Rousey have posed for SI's swimsuit issue?
  • What does Cris Cyborg need to do to get the Rousey fight?
  • Anderson Silva's "I wasn't cheating, I was using a sexual enhancement supplement tainted with steroids" excuse
  • Hulk Hogan's disastrous suit against Gawker, should he have filed it and what can he do from here?
  • Bernie Sanders and Black Lives Matter
