Chael Sonnen vs Luke Thomas - IF I DID IT

Welcome to IF I DID IT where we analyze and solve PR kerfuffles from the MMA world (insert hand gesture) not beyond.

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

Join your host, the indubitable Alexei Auld, author of “7 Secret Sources of Inspiration: A Snappy Guide for Creative Procrastinators”, and his guests, the illustrious Kid Nate Wilcox, Bloody Elbow General Manager and creator/knowledgable host of The Let it Roll Podcast, 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 have something to say about...

  • You’re Jon Jones. As the son of a preacher man, was your verbal assault on Israel Adesanya embracing a wrathful, fire and brimstone Old Time religion repartee for teaching your fellow man Proverbs 16:18: “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” live and in public, if you will? - 2:28 video, 2:41 audio
  • You’re Chael Sonnen. Luke Thomas ethered you. Is it better for your brand to squash your beef...or serve it? - 9:11 video, 9:25 audio
  • You’re Artem Lobov. After beating former boxing world Champion Paulie Malignaggi in a Bare Knuckle boxing match last weekend, what is your best PR path to maximize your monetization? - 13:41 video, 13:55 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: HEEL TURN - 17:52 video, 18:06 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: LOST BATTALION - 20:01 video, 20:15 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 non-MMA show where we solve salacious situations by stepping into the shoes of the shaken...the chagrined...the kerfuffed! Join along while Alexei, Eugene and Nate discuss PR issues in the world...

Now let’s get to stepping!

  • Step into the shoes of Duncan Hunter. With the Department of Justice at your door accusing you of illegally using campaign funds to fund multiple affairs, how can you convince the public that there’s no romance without finance, live and in public, if you will? - 1:25 video, 27:19 audio
  • Step into the shoes of a Democratic 2020 Presidential Candidate. How do you handle #CancelStudentDebt without canceling your constituency? - 5:09 video, 31:03 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: HEEL TURN - 16:07 video, 42:01 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: MISTYAF - 20:34 video, 46:27 audio

*timestamps reflect times on both the VIDEO & AUDIO podcasts.

“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.”
