    NO HOLDS BARRED: Frank Shamrock, Renzo Gracie, Gary Shaw 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman previews the debut of two mixed martial arts events.

    On Friday, January 19, the 2007 full debut season of the International Fight League (IFL) kicks off at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. There will be two team competitions. The San Jose Razorclaws, coached by Frank Shamrock, take on the debuting Nevada Lions, coached by Frank's brother, Ken Shamrock. The Seattle Tiger Sharks, coached by Maurice Smith, take on the Southern California Condors, coached by Marco Ruas. There will also be a superfight between Jeremy Horn and Niko Vitale.

    On Saturday, February 10, a new MMA promotion makes its debut. The EliteXC group will put on a show in the DeSoto Civic Center in Southaven, Miss., near Memphis, Tenn., which will also be shown live in the U.S. on Showtime, in that network's first MMA show. The main event will feature two MMA legends facing each other: Frank Shamrock and Renzo Gracie.

    We spoke with both Frank Shamrock and Renzo Gracie about their fight. We also spoke with Gary Shaw, the president of EliteXC, who is best known as being a major boxing promoter, about what attracted him to this brother combat sport of the sweet science.

    Since Frank Shamrock is so busy with his duties both as a coach in the IFL and a fighter in both EliteXC and Strikeforce, we also spoke with him separately to preview all these events. Frank's web page is at http://frankshamrock.com and his MySpace profile is at http://myspace.com/frankshamrock.

    NO HOLDS BARRED: Wallid Ismail, Jose Henrique Chierighini, Kurt Otto 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman begins by speaking with mixed martial arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu legend Wallid Ismail. The always-colorful Wallid has been promoting a series of shows called the Jungle Fight Championship. He tells us about his plans for the next event as well as his views on the respect due to the veterans of the MMA media, as well as other issues.

    The National Self-Defense Institute has declared January "Self-Defense Awareness Month". Numerous martial arts schools across the U.S., including many run by coaches in the International Fight League (IFL), began participating in this campaign by hosting a series of free self-defense classes in their academies.

    At the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York, we spoke with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and trainer Jose Henrique Chierighini, who conducted the first of these classes Saturday, January 13.

    We also spoke with one of those whom he regularly trains, Kurt Otto, who also of course is the co-founder and commissioner of the International Fight League (IFL). We spoke with him both about how his own training is going and the current and future plans of the IFL.

  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman speaks with two undefeated fighters, Ricky Hatton and Juan Urango, who face each other Saturday, January 20, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
