Welcome to If I Did It, the show where we tackle MMA’s toughest PR kerfluffles. This week we’ll be talking about Conor McGregor’s rumored appearance before the US Congress.
Alexei Auld is back with a brand new book available 7 Secret Sources of Inspiration: A Snappy Guide for Creative Procrastinators to grill Eugene S. Robinson (who’s pushing OXBOW’s new record THIN BLACK DUKE) and me, Kid Nate, with some PR stumpers from the world of combat sports.
Subscribe to co-host Alexei Auld’s new YouTube channel to see “If The Shoe Fits” the new non-MMA version of the show.
For the audio only version check us out on SoundCloud and be sure to subscribe to MMA NATION on iTunes and subscribe to MMA Nation on YouTube so you’ll never miss an episode. This week’s kerfuffles include:
You’re WME-IMG. Congressman Markwayne Mullin told Reuters that Conor McG is down with Ali, live and in public, if you will: “We have been told by his team that he (McGregor) was going to come to the (Capitol) Hill to talk about this.” Do you care?
You’re Cris Cyborg Justino. Your team called the cops on an agent who tried to give her an anti-doping sample in Thailand. Now folks are popping off about steroids. Should you wait until the results come back before responding?
