NO HOLDS BARRED: Shamrock-Le Preview, African-American Wrestling Legends at NCAA Wrestling Championship
On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman begins by previewing the mixed martial arts fight between Frank Shamrock and Cung Le. This will be held Saturday night, March 29, at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. It will be shown in the U.S. as the main event of a joint EliteXC and Strikeforce telecast on Showtime at 9 PM ET/PT.
We next present the discussion which took place at the tribute organized by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame to the African-American wrestling experience, held March 20, at the 2008 NCAA Div. I Wrestling Championship in St. Louis, Missouri.
Speaking are five African-American wrestling legends: Simon Roberts, who in 1957 wrestling at Iowa became the first African-American wrestler to win an NCAA wrestling championship; Bobby Douglas, the first African-American wrestler to represent the U.S. twice in the Olympics (1964 and 1968), the first African-American coach of an NCAA championship team (Arizona State in 1988), and the coach of undefeated four-time NCAA champion Cael Sanderson at Iowa State; Lee Kemp, a three-time NCAA champion at the University of Wisconsin and a three-time freestyle world champion (1978, 1979, and 1982); Lloyd Keaser, a 1973 world champion in freestyle and a two-time All-American at the Naval Academy; and Kenny Monday, the first African-American wrestler to win an Olympic gold medal (1988), a silver medalist in 1992 in freestyle wrestling, a world champion in freestyle wrestling in 1983, an NCAA champion in 1984 wrestling for Oklahoma State, and the Extreme Fighting welterweight championship in 1997.
