UFC 235 Fallout - If I Did It

Join your host Alexei Auld, author of “7 Secret Sources of Inspiration: A Snappy Guide for Creative Procrastinators”, and his guests, John S. Nash is back, the financial columnist and co-host of our Show Money Podcast, aka: the man who knows everything there is to know about the history of MMA, and of course rounding out the team we have the infamous Eugene S. Robinson, from, the OZY CONFIDENTIAL PODCAST and author of “Fight, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You Would Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking”; Collectively, your MMA Puncholes.

This week The Puncholes feature...

  • You’re the OOF-SEE (UFC). Explain your PR plans, ‘live and in public, if you will’, in wake of last Saturday night’s UFC 235 results. - 0:43 video, 1:07 audio
  • You’re Tyron Woodley. Your failure to overcome the OOF-SEE conspiracy against you, including preventing Funky Ben Askren from cornering you during your disastrous loss to Marty from Nebraska. What is your PR plan to remain and rise in a company where you’re just not wanted? - 13:41 video, 14:00 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: LEGION OF DOOM - 22:23 video, 22:41 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: LOST BATTALION - 23:29 video, 23:40 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: Public Relations: We’re Liable to Go Michael. Join along while Alexei, Eugene and John discuss PR issues in the non-MMA world!

Let’s get to stepping!

  • Step into the shoes of a corporation in the Michael Jackson business. Does your brand need to take a stand in wake of HBO’s “Finding Neverland” documentary affirming rumors of the Gloved One’s predatory behavior, live and in public, if you will? - 0:38 video, 26:10 audio
  • Step into the shoes of Michael Bloomberg. You’ve decided that the spending the next two years in a crowded Democratic primary wasn’t worth it because, you’ve “come to realize that (you’re) less interested in talking than doing”. What’s the real reason? - 9:56 video, 35:44 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: LEGION OF DOOM - 16:31 video, 42:12 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: #MISTYAF - 29:34 video, 55:06 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.”
