NO HOLDS BARRED: Jake Rosholt, Ted Ehrhardt of Team Takedown, Labor Day Salute to Las Vegas Culinary Workers Union
On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman begins with a Labor Day salute to the Culinary Workers Union Local 226.
This 60,000-member union, based in Las Vegas, has a "PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE LIST" of non-union hotels and casinos. That list includes several which are owned and operated by Station Casinos, whose two top officers are Frank J. Fertitta III and Lorenzo J. Fertitta, who also are the main moneymen behind UFC and Pride. The anti-union practices of Station Casinos were noted in a major news article.
Next, we speak with one of the hottest prospects recently to enter the world of mixed martial arts, Jake Rosholt. Jake was a three-time NCAA Div. 1 wrestling champion for the national champion Oklahoma State Cowboys. He is now 1-0 in mixed martial arts, and next fights Friday, Sept. 28, at the Masters of the Cage XVI event at the Bricktown Coca-Cola Event Center in Oklahoma City, Okla. An Internet pay-per-view is planned for that event.
We speak with both Jake Rosholt and Ted Ehrhardt, managing partner of Team Takedown, which represents Jake and several other former top collegiate wrestlers. We discuss what Team Takedown is and hopes to accomplish, Jake's adjustment to fighting from wrestling, why he decided to switch to mixed martial arts rather than continue wrestling, the different attitudes in mixed martial arts and wrestling, and more.
