What's up fight fans?

Welcome to another special episode of TTTHS (The Tommy Toe Hold Show) exclusively for SB Nation. I'm the cartoon version of the Donald Cerrone vs. Ben Henderson 3 decision, Tommy Toe Hold.

Today: Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre teach us a thing or two about public relations.

Mixed martial arts (MMA) is still a very new and raw sport. And part of the fun is that it's new and raw -- mistakes are made. We're only a few decades in and it's still very much the Wild West. Fighters are still learning how to deal with media and with fans. They're learning what to do in a controversy and how to get out of a jam.

So, I thought it would be funny if I took two of the more celebrated and relatively controversy-free fighters of all time, and gave them a public relations firm so they could teach the rest of the MMA world how to avoid a PR disaster or two ahead of UFC 183 this weekend (complete results here).
