No Holds Barred: Has Mixed Martial Arts Become the Dumbest Sport in America? 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on DojoRadio.com


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the devolution of mixed martial arts into becoming one of the dumbest, if not the dumbest, sports in America.

    Among the issues raised in this no holds barred commentary are how this sport was once a brilliant laboratory and school where discussion of technique was the order of the day, the imitation of the vulgar fake pro "wrestling" by UFC, the hatred of grappling by EliteXC which eventually led to the self-destruction of that company, the preposterous idea by Affliction of a creating a "reality" show to find an opponent for top heavyweight and pound-for-pound MMA fighter Fedor Emelianenko, the continued reliance on the technologically obsolete pay-per-view television model, and more.

    Listen to Roller Derby Girls on Joey Reynolds! 

    It was a night of fun, facts, and firsts, as four members of the Gotham Girls Roller Derby made their first guest appearances on the nationally-syndicated "Joey Reynolds Show" late Monday night/early Tuesday morning, October 20/21. Joining this animated discussion were Eddie Goldman of No Holds Barred, who is also the boxing correspondent for the "Joey Reynolds Show", and attorney Albert Wunsch.

    Representing the Gotham Girls Roller Derby were Dainty Inferno and Lemony Kickit of the Bronx Gridlock, and Dinah Party and Haulin' Cass of the Queens of Pain. Their two teams will meet for the 2008 season championship this Saturday, October 25, at the Hunter College Sportsplex on Lexington Avenue and 68th Street in Manhattan.

    Joey led this lively, open-ended discussion, which included the girls explaining how and why they got involved with roller derby, the history of the sport, its culture, the basic rules and league structure, how it is a do-it-yourself, skater-owned and -operated venture, and more. We also found some time to discuss a little boxing, including the victory this past Saturday night by Bernard Hopkins over Kelly Pavlik, and how most of the people running boxing are also ruining it.

    You can play or download this show here or here. You can also download it here. If one link does not work, please try another. The show is in MP3 format, so may take some time to download.

    The "Joey Reynolds Show" is a national radio broadcast in New York on WOR 710 AM and on 100 other stations via the WOR Network. The show airs live beginning at midnight EDT and runs to 5 AM EDT.

  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Steve Nelson, who fought in and ran the Unified Shoot Wrestling Federation (USWF) in the 1990's in Amarillo, Texas.

    Our focus on this show is the debut mixed martial arts card being held Friday, October 24, in Amarillo, of Shark Fight Promotions.

    This card, which will take place at the Amarillo National Center on the Tri-State Exposition grounds right near Interstate 40, will also be available on an Internet pay-per-view. Steve will be the lead commentator for this Internet pay-per-view.

    Besides the fight card, there will also be a tribute on this show to Amarillo native, the late Evan Tanner. One dollar of every pay-per-view purchase will be donated to the Evan Tanner Scholarship Fund.

    In a lengthy interview, we discuss the debut of Shark Fight Promotions in Amarillo, this fight card and which fighters to watch most closely, mixed martial arts and wrestling in Amarillo and Texas, and more.

    We also open the show with some comments on the masterful performance of Bernard Hopkins this past Saturday night, Oct. 18, in defeating Kelly Pavlik by a lopsided unanimous decision.

    SecondsOut Radio: Bernard Hopkins, The Old School Wins 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman discusses the masterful performance by Bernard Hopkins (49-5-1, 32 KOs) in taking a lopsided unanimous decision this past Saturday night against previously-unbeaten Kelly Pavlik (34-1, 30 KOs) at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

    We hear postfight comments from the master himself, the 43-year-old Hopkins, about what he did to win this fight. We hear from his trainer, Naazim Richardson, about why Hopkins was able to fight so energetically against Pavlik for 12 rounds. And we also discuss some problems in the way in which boxing is run which have prevented Hopkins from becoming as popular a star as his talent warrants.

    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.
