If I Did It: Sacrificing Bisping, Ducking Demetrious

Welcome to's If I Did It, the show where we help cage fighters navigate PR kerfluffles. This week we discuss Joe Rogan's take on Michael Bisping's quick turnaround between fights and quick KO in Shanghai. Plus much more. And right after the show be sure and watch the MMA Puncholes take on kerfluffles from beyond the world of MMA on If The Shoes Fit.

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

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. Collectively we are known as the MMA Puncholes.

Subscribe to co-host Alexei Auld's new YouTube channel to see “If The Shoe Fits” the new non-MMA version of the show. Listen to the latest episode of If The Shoe Fits here.

For the audio only version check us out on Soundcloud and be sure to subscribe to MMA NATION on iTunes and subscribe to MMA Nation on YouTube so you'll never miss an episode. This week's kerfuffles include:

You’re Dana White. Joe Rogan, live and in public, if you will, articulated what was on everybody’s mind after Michael Bisping’s vicious knockout at the meaty hands of Kelvin Gastelum just three weeks after getting choked out by lithe limbs of GSP, “You really have to protect the fighter from themselves. You really can’t be letting a guy fight three weeks after an absolutely brutal fight like that. It just does not make sense. It does not make sense. I don’t think it’s smart.”. What do you think, tough guy? - 0:57

You’re Demetrious Johnson. After running your mouth about respect and money, why you so quiet now that TJ Dillashaw wants to drop down in weight and give you as close to a Mighty payday as you can git? - 8:39

You’re WME-IMG. Women’s Bantamweight Champ Amanda Nunes claims that you want her to lose and are withholding promotional opportunities from her as a result of being non-blonde. What do you say? - 16:09

You’re Colby Covington. Funky Ben Askren said, "Colby Covington has a very low IQ, he says a lot of stupid things and it's almost embarrassing that he represents our country that way." Since you like shilling for fights that won’t versus a heavyweight, the Country of Brazil, Tyrone Woodley…. why not trash talk the funky One? - 17:36
