If I Did It: From Chechnya with Edilov

Look out! It's's If I Did It, the show where we address PR kerfluffles from the UFC and beyond. This week we talk more Mayweather vs McGregor fall out plus the UFC's newest foreign star.

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, with some PR stumpers from the world of combat sports.

Subscribe to co-host Alexei Auld's new YouTube channel to see “If The Shoe Fits” the new non-MMA version of the show starting next week.

You’re Conor McGregor. One week removed from your MacMay payday, walk us through the PR pros and cons, live and in public, if you will, of looking for your next fight inside or outside of the Octagon. - 2:55

You’re WME-IMG. Is it good business to have a fighter who pals around with a Chechen warlord? - 15:13

You’re Ronda Rousey. Is “Browsey2017” a one-time branding event, or do you have PR plans to expand? - 21:42
