No Holds Barred: Fedor Emelianenko, Tim Sylvia, Josh Barnett, Pedro Rizzo, Matt Lindland, Fabio "Negao" Nascimento, Ben Rothwell, Affliction Banned 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the "Affliction Banned" mixed martial arts card, which will be held Saturday, July 19, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, and shown in the U.S. on pay-per-view.

At a New York news conference this past Thursday, we spoke with many of the fighters who will appear on this show. We interviewed the top heavyweight and pound-for-pound mixed martial arts fighter in the world, Fedor Emelianenko, and his opponent, former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia. We spoke with another former UFC heavyweight champion, Josh Barnett, and his opponent, Pedro Rizzo, who fight in a rematch of their 2001 bout, which was won by Rizzo by knockout. We spoke with one of the top middleweights in the world, Olympic Greco-Roman wrestling silver medalist Matt Lindland, and his opponent, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighter Fabio "Negao" Nascimento. And we spoke with heavyweight star Ben Rothwell, who faces an opponent to be announced shortly.

As always, these are No Holds Barred interviews, covering not only MMA, but collegiate and catch wrestling, the politics of the combat sports, and the issues facing MMA fighters such as the restrictive and onerous contracts from companies such as the UFC.

No Holds Barred: Warrior Culture, Country Music and MMA, Pay-Per-View Model, IFL, Ryan Schultz, Dan Miller, Roy Nelson 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing the beating received this past Friday by former Chris Byrd in his ESPN2 bout with Shaun George. Byrd, a former heavyweight champion, was fighting at light heavyweight, and was stopped in the ninth round after looking drained and getting battered throughout the fight.

    We next focus on some important correspondence from a listener who understands the connection between the combat sports, the need for a warrior culture by people who are oppressed and downtrodden, and life in general.

    Among the other issues discussed are the appearance of EliteXC fighter Kimbo Slice on the Academy of Country Music Awards on CBS, the flaws in the pay-per-view model for the combat sports, and what the International Fight League needs to do to improve their fortunes.

    Next, we speak with the three IFL fighters who were victorious in their championship fights this past Friday, May 16, at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. They are lightweight champion Ryan Schultz, who won a unanimous decision over Deividas Taurosevicius, to retain his belt; Dan Miller, who captured the middleweight belt with a first-round kneebar submission over Ryan McGivern; and Roy Nelson, who retained his heavyweight title with a first-round TKO over Brad Imes.

    SecondsOut Radio: Ricky Hatton, Juan Lazcano, Frankie Figueroa, Buddy McGirt 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing the fragmented title picture in the 140-pound division, which again is hurting whatever credibility boxing has left, and the need for title unification.

    This past Wednesday, May 14, in New York, Frankie Figueroa (19-2, 13 KOs) successfully defended his regional NABF 140-pound title against Luis Rodriguez (22-2, 13 KOs) with a 12-round unanimous decision. He now wants a shot at a major world title. We spoke with Frankie Figueroa and his trainer, Buddy McGirt, himself a former champion at this weight, right after this fight about it and what lessons can be learned from it.

    This coming Saturday, May 24, Ricky Hatton (43-1, 31 KOs) fights in his hometown of Manchester, England, against veteran Juan Lazcano (37-4-1, 27 KOs). This fight will be televised live on the Versus network in the United States and on Sky Box Office in the United Kingdom.

    On a media conference call this past week, we spoke with both Ricky Hatton and Juan Lazcano about this fight and their plans.

    It is free to listen to SecondsOut Radio, but you must register to gain access to it. Just click here, and listen, learn, and enjoy.
