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

Join your host Alexei Auld, author of “7 Secret Sources of Inspiration: A Snappy Guide for Creative Procrastinators”, and his guests, Kid Nate of Bloody Elbow and producer of the Let It Roll podcast, 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”, Collectively, MMA Puncholes.

This week The Puncholes feature…

You’re the UFC. Your Lightweight Bull of the Woods, Khabib Nurmagomedov, put you on blast, live and in public, if you will, by not only threatening to leave the UFC if you fire his teammates, but blaming you for conspiring with Conor in the Barclay’s dolly attack. 50 Cent weighed in and offered Khabib TWO MILLION DOLLARS to fight for Bellator and later confirmed, “I’ll deal with Dana and your contract later. The UFC is not the only game in town. Zubaira is welcome also. #bellator ” How do you handle the sharp talons of this Eagle…UNCAGED! – 1:41

You’re Floyd Mayweather. Khabib called you out, live and in public, if you will, “Let’s go Floyd, we have to fight now…50-0 versus 27-0.” Walk us through your considerations for easy money in the ring vs a beatdown in the Octagon. – 9:03

“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.”

Now sit tight and momentarily you will be treated to an 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: Kidnapping Journalists and Identity. 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 the Main Stream Media (MSM). Your fiancee Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi embassy in Turkey, live and in public, if you will, and never came out. With footage of an alleged assassination squad and responsibility refusals from all parties, what steps can you take to get justice without losing your own life? – 1:08

Step into the shoes of the Cherokee Nation. After Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test demonstrated the existence of a Native American ancestor, why did you make a rare and public rebuke of her results? – 11:45

Step into the shoes of the Democratic Party. Is the discord between Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, and Michelle Obama something you can just ignore for the midterms, or do you need to provide context and a narrative to increase the odds of a Blue Wave? – 19:28

About the author
Alexei Auld
Alexei Auld

Nobody knows how or why Alexei Auld, a lawyer and bestselling author with zero experience in combat sports or journalism, ended up contributing to Bloody Elbow as the creator and chief kerfuffle wrangler of IF I DID IT. But he did. And somehow convinced Nate Wilcox, Eugene S. Robinson, and John Nash that it was a good idea. So much so, they joined him when he created IF THE SHOES FIT which doesn’t even handle MMA. Again, we don’t know why. But like Nate, Eugene, and John, we just can’t quit him or his shows. So here we are.
