    NO HOLDS BARRED: Todd and Tamera Sturgis, Ross Greenburg, Randy Gordon, Why UFC Does Not Matter 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing why the UFC should not matter to real aficionados of the combat sports. This commentary is as no holds barred as it gets.

    We then spoke with Todd and Tamera Sturgis, who have just released a wonderful documentary called "Under Pressure: Diary of a Cage Fighter's Wife". This film, which is premiering at select locations across the US, will soon be available on DVD. It is a must-see for all who want to learn about what combat sports athletes go through on a daily basis, and what their lives are really like.

    Next, we pestered Ross Greenburg, the president of HBO Sports, about the never-ending reports that HBO will be televising UFC shows. We caught up with him at this past week's Mayweather-Hatton news conference in New York. We also spoke there with Randy Gordon, former editor of The Ring magazine and chairman of the New York State Athletic Commission from 1988 to 1995, who now has a show on Sirius Satellite Radio called Fight Club.

    The academic research you mentioned sounds fascinating - I don't suppose there's any way to find out when the people involved might have completed their theses? I know of at least one person who has given presentations at conferences (a guy here in the UK called John Hopton), but not yet had a chance to look at a full-blown PhD thesis on the topic of MMA.
     
    I don't know the time frame of their work, but the person from NYU doing this research wants to sit down and talk with me, so I will ask. As you know, academic research by design is often incredibly dull and tedious reading. Hopefully their conclusions can eventually be rewritten in more accessible forms.
     
    Cheers, I look forward to hearing more about it: hopefully I'll then be able to access the completed thesis through the various electronic resources here at Warwick, or some other method (though my field is poetry, so this would be out of interest rather than research on my part).

    Can definitely sympathise on the dull and tedious: Lacan makes for painful reading. ;)
