IF I DID IT - Colby Covington & Cyborg Bizarre PR

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.

*** NOTE: Kid Nate will no longer be part of the ITSF or IIDI crew, these were his last episodes. The shows will no longer appear on Bloody Elbow Platforms either. Be sure to follow Alexei’s ‘If The Shoes Fit YouTube Channel’ if you wish to follow him and Eugene and their new guest, who will continue to produce ITSF episodes there. There is a chance there may be an occasional MMA-related IIDI episode produced, in which case we will be sure to bring that content to you right here on Bloody Elbow Presents Platforms. Thank you all for your viewership! (Previous episodes of the shows can be found on BE Presents IIDI playlists, or for newer episodes - check out playlists on Alexei’s channel mentioned above).


This week, 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, knowledgable host and creator of ‘The Let it Roll Podcast’, and of course rounding out the team we have the infamous Eugene S. Robinson, from ozy.com, 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 the OOF-SEE (UFC). Colby Covington has been struggling to do your job in promoting his fights. With a dominant performance against Ruthless Robbie Lawler, the Trump sons ringside, and a celebratory call from our President Donald J. Trump, is….it…..TIME to put some PR muscle behind Chaos, live and in public, if you will? - 0:48 video, 1:05 audio
  • You’re Cris Cyborg. What are your post OOF-SEE career plans now after Dana White threw you under the bus? - 8:49 video, 9:06 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: HEEL TURN - 15:51 video, 16:09 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: LOST BATTALION - 20:00 video, 20:19 audio

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

“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 The New York Times. You’re under attack for your “TRUMP URGES UNITY VS RACISM headline: #CancelNYT from the Left, who interpreted your headline as confirmation of your cowardice. And cuck Calls from the Right after you punked under pressure and changed the headline to “ASSAILING HATE NOT GUNS”. How can you appease both sides, live and in public, if you will? - 0:30 video, 25:44 audio
  • Step into the shoes of Mitch McConnell. A photo of Teenage boys wearing “Team Mitch” shirts choking and groping an AOC cutout went viral. Explain the PR behind your campaign manager’s reply: “Team Mitch in no way condones any aggressive, suggestive, or demeaning act toward life-sized cardboard cutouts of any gender.” - 9:18 video, 34:33 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: HEEL TURN - 20:11 video, 45:26 audio
  • REGULAR FEATURE: #MISTYAF - 23:41 video, 48:55 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.”
