No Holds Barred: Frank Shamrock on Grappling Sakuraba in Rizin 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with MMA legend Frank Shamrock.

Now 44 and retired as a fighter for many years, he will be returning to competition at the Rizin Fighting World Grand-Prix 2017 Autumn this Sunday, October 15.

This match, however, will not be an MMA fight, but a submission-only grappling rules match with a ten-minute time limit. His opponent will be another MMA legend, but someone whom he never fought in MMA, the 48-year-old Kazushi Sakuraba.

This event takes place at the Marine Messe Fukuoka in Fukuoka, Japan.

The main event on this card is a women's MMA fight between RENA and Andy Nguyen, which is a first round fight in the Rizin Woman's Super Atom Tournament.

We spoke with Frank Shamrock by phone Saturday while he was in Japan (Friday New York time).

Asked why he decided to take this match against Sakuraba, whom he called "a master at submissions," he said, "The reason why I always wanted to fight him, we had the same lineage of teachings. His teachers are my teachers."

He continued, "The main reason I want to fight him is, we have the same style, and I've never fought my style, my lineage before."

We discussed more on how that lineage comes from catch wrestling, how he was contacted to be in this match, how he has had "three careers" in the combat sports, why real professional catch wrestling can succeed if it is entertaining, how this match is a one-off, how Rizin can expand its popularity beyond Japan, his current work in television and a campaign to build awareness about mental health, and much more.

From 2012 - No Holds Barred: John Perretti on His Pioneering 1997 Grappling Event, The Contenders 



Twenty years ago today, on October 11, 1997, the pioneering grappling event known as "The Contenders" was held. John Perretti was the main organizer of it, and we interviewed him on No Holds Barred about it in December 2012. Here is the original information on that show, as well as links to that original podcast:

From 2012 - No Holds Barred: John Perretti on His Pioneering 1997 Grappling Event, The Contenders

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with lifelong martial artist, former UFC and Battlecade Extreme Fighting matchmaker, TV commentator, and our senior correspondent, John Perretti.

On October 11, 1997, before the major no-gi grappling championships of today, John Perretti was the main organizer of a pioneering grappling event known simply as "The Contenders". The format was a seven-match card, held in Sioux City, Iowa, pitting a team of various martial artists against a team of elite U.S. wrestlers. Victory in each match could come by submission or, if there was none, judges' decision. There was no striking permitted, and the matches were held in a cage. The martial artists won, four matches to three, including three wins by submissions, but controversy ensued during and after the event about the rules and decisions.

This ended up being a money-losing, one-shot deal, because attendance was sparse and pay-per-view buys were minuscule. Still, it is considered a pioneering event because its concept helped inspire the numerous no-gi grappling championships which followed it.

Calling the event his "brainchild," John Perretti said in this interview, which was recorded by Skype Sunday, "I am to blame for all the problems with it." But he added, quoting a widely-held view about this event, "It's the greatest show no one ever saw."

We thus discussed what happened at this historic event, many of whose matches can be seen on YouTube, some of the lessons for today, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Deception, Trickeration, and Boxing Matchmaking 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses some of the latest trickeration and treats in boxing, including theories why the Deontay Wilder-Luis Ortiz fight was never meant to take place, and how the rematch between Wilder and Bermane Stiverne, whom Wilder defeated in 2015, was the plan all along. Also examined are the many misconceptions and mountain of misinformation and disinformation which had been spread about anti-doping procedures and why Ortiz was legitimately facing sanctions for taking two substances banned by all anti-doping organizations that were in his blood pressure medicine.

On October 14, the PBC returns with a split doubleheader full of title fights, but of planned, different levels of competitiveness. First up, live on Fox and Fox Deportes in the U.S., and taking place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, there are two featherweight title fights. Leo Santa Cruz will face Chris Avalos, and Abner Mares will fight Andres Gutierrez, both of which are designed as showcase fights to set up a much more anticipated Santa Cruz-Mares rematch following their 2015 fight, won by split decision by Santa Cruz.

Then on Showtime in the U.S, and taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, there will be a tripleheader of 154-pound title fights. WBA super champion Erislandy Lara, considered by many to be the best in the world in that division, will fight unbeaten Terrell Gausha. WBC champ Jermell Charlo will have a stiff test against undefeated Erickson Lubin. And IBF champ Jarrett Hurd will make the first defense of his belt against veteran former champion Austin Trout.

We discuss what is behind these fights, which may eventually lead to title unification fights, and get comments from Jarrett Hurd, Austin Trout, and Erickson Lubin from this past week's media conference call.

No Holds Barred: Wilder-Ortiz, Doping, and Trickeration 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses why the Nov. 4 heavyweight title fight between WBC champ Deontay Wilder and Luis "King Kong" Ortiz will apparently not take place due to a positive PED test for Ortiz. Discussed is what we know so far, how taking a medication which contained substances prohibited by anti-doping organizations led to this, the failure of Ortiz's team to list this on the forms they submitted or apply for a therapeutic use exemption, the consequences of such actions for Ortiz who already had been fined and suspended for PED use in 2014, and more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents the September 14 international media conference call hosted by ONE Championship.

This call was to publicize their return to their home base of Singapore with a major show called ONE: Immortal Pursuit.

On the call were:

Angela Lee - ONE Women's Atomweight World Champion

Mei Yamaguchi - ONE world title challenger

Ben Askren - ONE Welterweight World Champion

Shinya Aoki - Former ONE Lightweight World Champion

Chatri Sityodtong​ - ​Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship

ONE: Immortal Pursuit will feature these four fighters in title bouts.

Last year the undefeated Angela Lee won a close but unanimous decision over Mei Yamaguchi to capture the first-ever ONE women's atomweight title. This was the only fight in which Angela Lee had not stopped her opponent. Now the rematch is set for this card, and is the third defense of her belt.

In what he has said will be his retirement fight, the undefeated Ben Askren will take on submission specialist and former ONE lightweight champion Shinya Aoki in a welterweight title fight.

All the fighters discussed their careers and their approach to their fights. In addition, Chatri Sityodtong discussed the continued growth of ONE Championship and their plans for the future.

ONE: Immortal Pursuit takes place Friday, November 24, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. More details about this show are expected to be announced shortly.

Golovkin-Canelo - Trickeration or Treat? 


by Eddie Goldman

You won't find me regularly offering public predictions about major fights. It is not that I am fearful of being wrong, since on the occasions when I am wrong, I'm mostly upset at myself, as contradictory as that may sound. The reason is that I am already heavily involved in all sorts of controversies about corruption, excessive dangers, bad governance, etc., in the combat sports, and I'd prefer not to have those issues clouded by battles over who will win legit fights.

There are exceptions, of course, so when I was asked to make a prediction for the Santa Cruz-Frampton 2 fight for the official program, I complied. And I have done so once again for the Golovkin-Canelo official program.

Right or wrong, here again (I've already discussed this on No Holds Barred) is that prediction:

The obviously important fight between Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and Saúl "Canelo" Álvarez should also be an entertaining battle. The larger Golovkin often starts slowly, finding his range and testing his opponent's power. That could allow Canelo to rack up some points early. As the fight progresses, however, Golovkin should be able to break and wear Canelo down, dominate the fight, and score a late stoppage, even if the scorecards make it seem closer than it actually was. Golovkin by late TKO.

There are several caveats, however. Canelo is likely to rack up points in the early rounds, as even Golovkin's trainer, Abel Sanchez, recently indicated in the prefight conference call. Golovkin notably started slowly to gather information in his last two fights, first against Kell Brook, whom he defeated by fifth-round TKO, and then against Danny Jacobs, whom he defeated by a somewhat controversial unanimous decision.

If, as I predicted, Golovkin is able to stop Canelo, the scorecards will become historical footnotes. I noted that he should "score a late stoppage, even if the scorecards make it seem closer than it actually was."

This is where boxing's trickeration comes in. And what, you may inquire, is trickeration? As far as I can tell, the term entered the unofficial vocabulary of American English in a 1931 song of that name written by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler and popularized by singer and entertainer Cab Calloway. The lyrics are:

Just follow me,
And you will see,
What folks in Harlem
Call Trickeration.

Don't mean a thing,
This crazy swing,
Latest thing in Harlem,
Trickeration!

Rhythm, look what you went and done,
Rhythm, you are the guilty one.

Another phrase,
Just another craze,
Everyone in Harlem
Does Trickeration.


The term received a new meaning years later in boxing, when it no longer meant that it "Don't mean a thing". The esteemed etymologist and linguist Don King frequently used the term to describe trickery in boxing, a phenomenon with which he was somehow quite familiar.

While the Golovkin-Canelo fight has all the markings of being a treat for fight fans, it also could be a target for trickeration.

If my prediction is incorrect, and Canelo manages to go the distance with Golovkin, will the scorecards reflect what happened in the fight? Suppose Canelo legit wins the first three rounds. If he wins just two of the next nine rounds, and does not get dropped, it should be 7-5 for Golovkin. That gives the judges a lot of wiggle room, even if there is a knockdown in the fight.

Canelo is by far the most popular and main revenue-producing fighter for Golden Boy Promotions. He is also HBO's last pay-per-view star.

Would any of this influence the judges assigned by the Sin City Athletic Commission? Would yet another controversial and disputed decision set the stage for a lucrative rematch or even trilogy to milk this rivalry for more than it is worth? Would fans not be put off by yet another disgraceful decision in a sport that makes corpses blush?

My concern is not trying to justify my prediction. If Canelo wins legitimately by knockout or decision, or if the fight is actually one of those which is too close to call or could have gone either way, so be it and fantastic.

Perhaps warning about the possibility of trickeration beforehand could prevent it. And perhaps that is mere naive and wishful thinking. So while it is still too early to think about Halloween, we shall see Saturday night whether or not we have an early trickeration or treat dilemma, and are played for suckers once again.

Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev Meet the Media 



by Eddie Goldman

Only because I was already up and doing things -- a rarity for me on a Monday or any other morning -- I watched the live stream of the Anthony Joshua-Kubrat Pulev press conference.

Joshua (19-0, 19 KOs), who turns 28 on October 15, defends his IBF and WBA heavyweight belts against the IBF mandatory Pulev (25-1, 13 KOs), who turns 37 on September 19. This fight takes place October 28 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, U.K., where this press conference also took place.

Basically it was quite a civil and non-eventful press conference. No chairs or tables were tossed, no punches were thrown, and the language was quite fit for both newspapers and TV.

They will no doubt fill the building, which hosts rugby, football, and other events, has a retractable roof, and has a maximum capacity of 74,500. They will also do well on the U.K. pay-per-view on Sky Sports Box Office, without the staged hysteria and theatrics typical of those combat sports events which imitate the sordid W"W"E.

There were a few interesting things, though. Promoter Eddie Hearn, in touting Pulev as a worthy challenger for Joshua, said, according to The Ring, whose nickname he noted as "The Bible of Boxing", Pulev was ranked as a heavyweight only behind Joshua and WBC champ Deontay Wilder. I didn't bother to check this propaganda sheet for Golden Boy, but if that is true, where do they rank former Golden Boy fighter and unbeaten WBA mandatory Luis "King Kong" Ortiz? If you aren't already a non-believer, or at least a boxing atheist, this should make you one.

Also, so far there is no official word on if or when Showtime, with whom Joshua is contracted, will show this in the U.S. A live telecast from Wales would mean it would start on Showtime in the U.S. in the afternoon, about 5 PM EDT. But as of now, the schedule for Showtime's main channel lists a marathon of their series "Shameless" for that time. Perhaps, since it is still Monday morning here, they are still asleep.

And if you must see it, although it apparently isn't on the Sky Sports Boxing web site, a video of this press conference is already on YouTube:

https://youtu.be/UAUOwnjeQ8M

Now it's time for me to catch up on watching last night's episodes of "The Orville", "Insecure", and "Ray Donovan".

Saturday Is For Real Boxing 



by Eddie Goldman

For those folks interested in real boxing who are fortunate enough to be spared from all this devastation and tragedy going on around the world, Saturday, September 9, is a busy day.

The World Boxing Super Series has its first card Saturday, featuring the current WBO cruiserweight champion, Oleksandr Usyk, against a former champion, Marko Huck. This fight, the opening round of this event's eight-man cruiserweight tournament, takes place at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin.

While the World Boxing Super Series just recently signed TV deals with networks in several European countries, including Germany and Russia, this fight will not be televised live in the U.K. or at all in the U.S.

The U.S. will host one of the strongest cards of the year, however, as three major fights in the talented super flyweight division take place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Headlining this card, which has been dubbed "SuperFly", will be a rematch of a March fight between Wisaksil Wangek AKA Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand and Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez of Nicaragua. In their first fight, Rungvisai won a controversial majority decision, handing Chocolatito his first loss and capturing his WBC belt. In a battle of two exciting Mexican fighters, former WBA 108-pound champion Juan Francisco Estrada will face Carlos Cuadras, with the winner likely getting a title shot at the Rungvisai-Chocolatito victor. This fight could also be a show stealer. And in his first fight outside his home country, the unbeaten 24-year-old phenom Naoya Inoue of Japan will defend his WBO belt against American Antonio Nieves.

The "SuperFly" card will be shown on HBO in the U.S., WOWOW in Japan, and Sky Sports in the U.K.

I have already discussed these cards and other topics more in depth, including the TV situation, here:

No Holds Barred: A Sweet But Dysfunctional September for Boxing

Joshua-Pulev, Golovkin-Canelo, World Boxing Super Series, Parker-Fury TV News

So please be safe, and watch as many of these fights as you can. And remember, Mens sana in corpore sano.

No Holds Barred: Kid Peligro on ADCC 2017 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with our colleague and correspondent Kid Peligro.

Our main topic was the 2017 ADCC (Abu Dhabi Combat Club) Submission Fighting World Championship, which will be held Saturday, September 23, and Sunday, September 24, at the Espoo Metro Areena in Espoo, Finland.

It is the most important and prestigious grappling tournament in the world, and as always will feature competition in no-gi grappling.

There will be tournaments held featuring grapplers who either won in the many continental qualifying trials, or were former ADCC champions.

The men's weight classes are -66kg, -77kg, -88kg, -99kg, and +99kg, plus an Absolute division.

The women's weight classes are -60kg and +60kg.

Another highlight will be the Superfights.

In the main Superfight, multi-time ADCC champion Andre Galvao takes on Claudio Calasans.

There will also be two Stars Superfights featuring veteran competitors. In these, Renzo Gracie faces Sanae Kikuta and Leo Vieira faces Chael Sonnen.

The 2017 ADCC Submission Fighting World Championship will be streamed live on FloGrappling.

We spoke with Kid Peligro by phone Thursday.

For this event, there is "a lot of anticipation. It's the number one event," he said, "most prestigious and best event in the world of this type."

He continued, "If you like submission grappling, jiu-jitsu, judo, wrestling, this is a really, really great event."

We discussed the favorites in each weight class and the Superfights, some of the history of upsets by then-little-known grapplers in ADCC events, how success in grappling does not always mean success in MMA and vice versa, and much more.
