If I Did It: Conor McGregor gaffes in Gdansk

Welcome to If I Did It, the show where we provide unsolicited PR advice to the world of MMA. This week we focus on Conor McGregor's multiple PR missteps at UFC Gdansk. Right after the show tune in to If the Shoes Fit to see us advise the world beyond MMA.

Alexei Auld is back with a brand new book available 7 Secret Sources of Inspiration: A Snappy Guide for Creative Procrastinators to grill Eugene S. Robinson (who’s pushing OXBOW's new record THIN BLACK DUKE) and me, Kid Nate (who has a new podcast on the history of rock and roll), with some PR stumpers from the world of combat sports.
