  • You’re Paulo Costa. Yoel Romero blamed a drug test failure for your failure to fight him in the main event at UFC on ESPN+ 3. What PR steps do you need to take to put some ‘respek’ back on your name? - 11:58 video, 12:14 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: HEEL TURN - 16:48 video, 17:05 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: LOST BATTALION - 19:12 video, 19:26 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: College Cheating Scandal. Join along while Alexei, Eugene and Nate discuss PR issues in the non-MMA world!

Now let’s get to stepping!

  • Step into the shoes of a child of a parent charged in the college admissions scandal. Your parent’s payment to fake your way to college is now live and in public, if you will. What PR steps do you need to make to keep your undeserved spot? - 0:43 video, 23:30 audio
  • Step into the shoes of New York Mayor Bill De Blasio. You’ve been put on blast for flapping your wings during an R Kelly song last Sunday in church. Can you eat crow without looking like a jive turkey? - 14:45 video, 37:33 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: HEEL TURN - 23:02 video, 45:50 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: #MISTYAF - 24:50 video, 47:36 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.”
