If I Did It: Jon Jones Testifies

Welcome to If I Did It, the show where we grapple with PR kerfluffles from the world of MMA. This week we talk about Jon Jones’ testimony before the California State Athletic Commission and the Jeremy Stephens illegal knee controversy and the UFC coverage of it.

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

Join us right after this show for If the Shoes Fit where we go beyond the world of MMA.

Kid Nate of Bloody Elbow (who has a new podcast about rock and roll history) and Eugene S. Robinson, from and author of “Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You’d Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking” join host Alexei Auld for another episode of If I Did It. Collectively, they make up the MMA Puncholes.

You’re Jon Jones. The California State Athletic Commission revoked your license and slapped you with a fine bearing a Stockton area code, live and in public, if you will. What PR moves do you need to make in wake of your upcoming date with USADA? - 1:06

You’re the UFC. Jeremy Stephens cracked Josh Emmett last weekend, live and in public, if you will, with an illegal knee...that went unpunished! How do you make things right? - 15:45

You’re Conor McGregor. You and Dana White are coming close to confirming a fight. What makes the most sense for your brand? - 23:14
