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.
