No Holds Barred: Turi Altavilla on Demise of EliteXC 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic

  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Turi Altavilla, a vice president of EliteXC until the very recent demise of that mixed martial arts company. Turi also was formerly a vice president of the Pride Fighting Championships.

    In a lengthy interview, we get a rare, behind-the-scenes look at how EliteXC operated, and discuss what led to EliteXC closing its operations, the controversy stemming from the Kimbo Slice-Seth Petruzelli fight, what direction mixed martial arts should take, what his plans are now, and much, much more.

    No Holds Barred: Haulin Cass of Gotham Girls Roller Derby, NHB Mailbag on Dumb MMA 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on DojoRadio.com


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman continues our discussions about the fastest-growing sport in America, roller derby, and the dumbest sport in America, mixed martial arts, and their interrelationship.

    This past Saturday, October 25, the Gotham Girls Roller Derby held their 2008 season championship bout at Hunter College in New York. In an upset and a surprising rout, the former league champions, the Queens of Pain, toppled the defending champions, the Bronx Gridlock, by a score of 161-113.

    After the game, we spoke with Haulin' Cass, a blocker for Queens, about their victory, and what is coming up in the post-season.

    The Gotham Girls All-Stars are ranked number one in the East by the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), and will be competing in the 2008 WFTDA Championship Tournament, November 14-16, in Portland, Oregon.

    Next, we discuss some of the e-mails we received regarding our last show, which was entitled, "Has Mixed Martial Arts Become the Dumbest Sport in America?" We answered in the affirmative, and we got an overwhelmingly positive response from many people who have grown disgusted with the present direction of MMA in general, and UFC in particular.

    SecondsOut Radio: Cristian Mijares, Vic Darchinyan, George Kimball on the Four Kings 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman discusses the present and past of boxing, and its present and past champions.

    This coming Saturday, November 1, there will be a title unification bout in one of boxing's most exciting and talented weight classes, the super flyweight division (115 pounds). WBA and WBC champion Cristian Mijares (35-3-2, 13 KOs), of Gomez Palacio, Mexico, will face IBF champion Vic Darchinyan (30-1-1, 24 KOs), of Sydney, Australia, at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. This fight will be telecast live on Showtime in the U.S.

    We spoke with both Cristian Mijares and Vic Darchinyan on a media conference call this past week about what to expect in this fight.

    Boxing is also a sport in which you can live simultaneously in the present and the past, and sanely, too. A new book by veteran boxing writer George Kimball transports us back into the past by tracing the intertwined careers of Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Thomas Hearns, and Roberto Duran. The book is entitled Four Kings: Leonard, Hagler, Hearns, Duran and the Last Great Era of Boxing.

    We spoke with George Kimball about his book and the past, present, and future of boxing, right before the Oct. 18 Bernard Hopkins-Kelly Pavlik fight in Atlantic City, and after he had participated in a forum on the book with trainer Emanuel Steward, promoter Bob Arum, and announcer Larry Merchant.

    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.
