Nash, of Bloody Elbow’s Show Money, aka: the man who knows everything there is to know about the history of MMA, and Eugene S. Robinson, from ozy.com and author of “Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You’d Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking”, Collectively, MMA Puncholes.

This week The Puncholes feature...

You’re the UFC. Why are you denying the existence of a Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone match, live and in public, if you will, instead of making it so? - 1:04 video, 1:36 audio

You’re Nevada State Athletic Commission. Explain your PR plan for handling Cody McKenzie’s sexual harassment claim? - 14:33 video, 15:01 audio

REGULAR FEATURE: LEGION OF DOOM - 20:52 video, 21:21 audio

“We’ll be back next week with another installment of If I Did It; and we don’t know what we’ll be talking about yet because the PR mistakes have yet to be made.”


Welcome to another episode of If The Shoes Fit; a show where we solve salacious situations by stepping into the shoes of the shaken...the chagrined...the kerfuffed! This week: Fortnite dance drama and #FacebookDown. Join along while Alexei, Eugene and John discuss PR issues in the non-MMA world!

Now let’s get to stepping!

Step into the shoes of Epic Games. Actor Donald Faison joined 2 Milly in criticizing your jacking and selling their dance moves in Fortnite, live and in public, if you will. While the law is on your side, do you have a moral obligation to share your wealth? - 0:56 video, 29:47 audio

Step into the shoes of Facebook. Last week, the New York Times released a blistering report about your pernicious Putin-sequel PR tactics. On Tuesday, your site, along with your Instagram, went down...inspiring the hashtag #FacebookDown. Is this a flex to show consumer dependence and if not, how do you stop them from looking elsewhere for their fix? - 8:24 video, 37:14 audio

Step into the shoes of Julián Assange. After relentlessly pursuing Hillary Clinton with the hope of a more lenient Donald Trump presidency, reports surfaced that that President Trump has unleashed the CIA and the Justice Department to take you down. With enemies on both sides of the aisle, is there anything you can do...other than hope the Ecuadorian Embassy doesn’t kick you to the curb? - 13:38 video, 42:09 audio

REGULAR FEATURE: LEGION OF DOOM - 18:54 video, 47:47 audio
REGULAR FEATURE: #MISTYAF - 23:00 video, 51:49 audio

“Until next week, no matter how tight, loose, or uncomfortable, remember these words: on this show, the shoes always fit, so we can never acquit.”
