No Holds Barred: Mike Chapman of Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum, Tom Atencio of Affliction 



  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic
  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins with another commentary on the poor level of striking in the mixed martial arts, especially as compared even to mid-level boxing, and the even worse reporting and analysis by many in the so-called MMA "media" regarding various key issues, in particular reflecting their bias in favor of the current UFC owners.

    Mike Chapman, the founder of the Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum in Waterloo, Iowa, has long been the top wrestling historian in America. Now that museum has been severely damaged by the storms and floods that have been recently ravaging Iowa and much of the Midwest.

    We spoke with Mike about what physical damage has been done to the museum, what this means for its future, and what people can do to assist them.

    We also spoke with Tom Atencio, vice president of Affliction, about the move by UFC to run a free cable show directly opposite their July 19 pay-per-view. We also discussed the news that their main event, involving top heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko and former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia, will be contested for the heavyweight championship of the new World Alliance of Mixed Martial Arts (WAMMA), which is an independent sanctioning body.

    Problems Listening to No Holds Barred 

    I have received many reports that No Holds Barred is not playing or downloading properly on the main site which hosts it, PodOmatic.com. As I stated on the show, that site has had incredible problems since its "upgrade" in late May.

    I have thus been making the show available through a few other sites.

    To access the latest episode, "No Holds Barred: MMA in New York, Grappling in MMA, EliteXC, Dream, Holm-Sanders, Daniel Cormier and Olympic Wrestling Trials", click one of these links:

    http://www.nowpublic.com/sports/no-holds-barred-ny-mma-cormier-olympic-wrestling-0

    http://dojotube.com/

    We are also working on either making sure PodOmatic works properly, or moving the show, so stay tuned for more information.

    No Holds Barred: MMA in New York, Grappling in MMA, EliteXC, Dream, Holm-Sanders, Daniel Cormier and Olympic Wrestling Trials 


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins with a highly-charged commentary on what has been happening with the attempt to legalize mixed martial arts in New York State, how both the mixed martial arts and mainstream media have once again offered distorted accounts of the history and nature of the sport and what has been occurring in this latest episode, and what must be done in New York both to legalize the sport and protect the rights of the fighters and provide them with the same protections already afforded boxers.

    Next, we draw some lessons from the June 13 Holly Holm-Mary Jo Sanders fight billed as determining the top pound-for-pound women's boxer, the June 14 EliteXC mixed martial arts show in Hawaii, and the June 15 Dream 4 mixed martial arts card in Yokohama, Japan. Once again, the issue of the pivotal role of grappling in the mixed martial arts is addressed.

    This past weekend, the 2008 U.S. Olympic Wrestling Trials took place in Las Vegas. We address the crazy rules put in place by FILA, the international wrestling federation.

    Right after his victory at the Olympic Trials, we spoke by phone with Daniel Cormier, who will represent the U.S. at 96 kg/211.5 lbs. in freestyle wrestling. He is also expected to be part of a group of Olympic wrestlers who will be visiting New York this coming Thursday and Friday to make fan and media appearances.

    Mixed martial arts, wrestling, and boxing, all with a no-holds- barred flavor -- now where else can you get all that?

    To listen to No Holds Barred, click here or here and just press the play button on the player.

    The show is in MP3 format, so may take some time to download.

    SecondsOut Radio: Deandre Latimore, Paulie Malignaggi, Teddy Atlas, Lou DiBella 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman discusses the recent string of upsets of hometown and undefeated fighters on ESPN2's series of Wednesday and Friday night televised shows, and why undefeated records should not be valued as much as they are in boxing.

    This past Wednesday, June 11, yet another upset took place. IBF top 154-pound contender Sechew Powell of Brooklyn, fighting a subway ride away from home in the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square in Manhattan, was stopped in the seventh round by unheralded 22-year-old Deandre Latimore of Las Vegas and St. Louis. Powell, now 23-2 with 14 KOs, is promoted by Seminole Warriors Boxing, the co-promoter of this card and whose Seminole Tribe also owns the Hard Rock. All of the prior fights of Latimore, now 19-1 with 16 KOs, had been in Missouri against little-known opposition, with his one loss coming by KO against Ian Gardner last year.

    After this fight, we spoke with a victorious and jubilant Deandre Latimore. We spoke with promoter Lou DiBella, who formerly promoted Powell and now has been in negotiations with Latimore, We also spoke with ESPN2 announcer Teddy Atlas, who has been calling all these upsets from ringside. And we spoke with IBF 140-pound champion Paulie Malignaggi, who was attending this card, about his plans to fight Ricky Hatton in the fall and his injured right hand.

    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.
