Welcome to IF I DID IT, where we analyze and solve PR kerfuffles from the MMA world (insert hand gesture) not beyond.
I’m your host Alexei Auld, author of “7 Secret Sources of Inspiration: A Snappy Guide for Creative Procrastinators”, and joining me are co-hosts John S. Nash, the man who knows everything there is to know about the history of MMA (filling in for Mr. Eugene S Robinson, from ozy.com and author of “Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You’d Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking”), and Kid Nate Wilcox, Producer of the Let it Roll Podcast; Collectively, two thirds of the MMA Puncholes.
