If I Did It: Unsolicited PR advice for Nick Diaz, the Nevada Commission & the UFC

New, 27 comments

Alexei Auld tries to herd cats as Kid Nate and Eugene S. Robinson provide unsolicited public relations advice for Nick Diaz and the Nevada Athletic Commission following the NAC's decision to suspend Nick for 5 years for marijuana usage.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Once again I'm back with 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 and I brought back Alexei Auld to grill us with some PR stumpers from the world of combat sports.

Today's puzzlers include:

  • What can Nick Diaz do from here to marshall public support and pressure the Nevada Athletic Commission to reduce his suspension
  • What can the Nevada Athletic Commission do from here to recover from this self-inflicted PR black eye?
  • What, if anything, should the UFC do to avoid getting blame for this mess they had very little to do with causing?
  • Plus which GOP presidential candidates are in "Eugene's Lost Battalion"?
