No Holds Barred: Evan Tanner Tribute with Steve Nelson 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on DojoRadio.com


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman is joined by Steve Nelson, founder of the Unified Shoot Wrestling Federation (USWF) of Amarillo, Texas, to talk about the passing of mixed martial arts and wrestling champion Evan Tanner.

    Evan Tanner, a native of Amarillo who was living in Oceanside, Calif., was a USWF heavyweight champion, a two-time Texas high school state wrestling champion, a UFC middleweight champion, and a Pancrase Neo-Blood Tournament champion. The 37-year-old Tanner was found dead Sept. 8 after he had been reported missing while on a camping trip in southern California.

    In this interview, we discuss how Steve, who knew Evan for about 20 years, watched him progress from being a successful high school wrestler to become a champion in professional shoot wrestling and mixed martial arts. We discuss Evan's life, his legacy, his strengths and weaknesses, his unending search to find meaning for what he did, and, to use Evan's own words, his attempt to influence children positively by opposing "the message of self-glorification and disrespect" and being "the ultimate gentleman, honorable and respectful."

    There will be a public memorial meeting for Evan Tanner Saturday, September 27, beginning at 2 PM CDT, at the Amarillo Civic Center in that building’s auditorium, at 401 S. Buchanan Street, in Amarillo. The memorial meeting is called "Evan Tanner - Celebration of Life - Memorial". Steve Nelson will be a featured speaker at this memorial.

    No Holds Barred: Golden Boy-Affliction Deal, Ginger Snap of Gotham Girls Roller Derby 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on DojoRadio.com


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing why the new deal for Golden Boy Promotions and Affliction Clothing to run joint boxing-mixed martial arts cards on pay-per-view television is a long shot at best, and what it means for both boxing and mixed martial arts. As usual, this is a no holds barred analysis.

    In the second part of this show, we return to discussing the Gotham Girls Roller Derby league, a skater-owned and operated organization based in New York City. They have just completed their regular season, and are preparing for their postseason competition. The Gotham Girls Roller Derby is currently ranked second in the U.S., and first in the east, by the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, the national organization of roller derby leagues.

    Right after their last regular season game this past Friday night, Sept. 12, where the Manhattan Mayhem routed the Brooklyn Bombshells by a score of 146-91, we spoke with Ginger Snap aka Natily Blair, the president of the Gotham Girls Roller Derby. She also skates for the Bronx Gridlock, the defending league champions, who will face the Queens of Pain Sat., Oct. 25, at Hunter College in Manhattan in their 2008 championship game.

    We discussed Friday's game, what to expect in the postseason, the structure of the regional and national postseason events, and more.

    SecondsOut Radio: Marquez Stops Casamayor, Forrest and Bradley Win, Campbell-Guzman Fiasco, Lou Duva on Peter-Klitschko 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on this past weekend's major title fights. In them, Juan Manuel Marquez (49-4-1, 36 KOs) handed lightweight champion Joel Casamayor (36-4-1, 22 KOs) his first career loss by stoppage, Vernon Forrest (41-3, 29 KOs) regained the WBC super welterweight belt by impressively decisioning Sergio Mora (21-1-1, 5 KOs) in a rematch from their first bout in June, and WBC super lightweight champion Timothy Bradley (23-0, 11 KOs) made the first defense of his belt by decisioning and dominating Edner Cherry (24-6-2, 12 KOs).

    We also discuss the fiasco which led to the fight between WBA, WBO, and IBF lightweight champion Nate Campbell (32-5-1, 25 KOs) and Joan Guzman (28-0, 17 KOs) being cancelled after Guzman failed to make weight. And we argue that the next fight for Juan Manuel Marquez and Nate Campbell should be against one another, the best against the best in the lightweight division.

    On October 11, in Berlin, Germany, WBC heavyweight champion Samuel Peter (30-1, 23 KOs) will defend his title against the former WBC champion and current "champion emeritus" Vitali Klitschko (35-2, 34 KOs), who is making his return to the ring after a four-year absence.

    In the first of a series of interviews about this fight which will be posted over the next weeks, we spoke with the veteran trainer Lou Duva, who is working with the Peter camp. We discussed what to expect in the Peter-Klitschko fight, where he believes Peter stands in the history of heavyweight boxing, and what went wrong with the U.S. Olympic boxing team at the 2008 Olympics.
