No Holds Barred: John Perretti on the Devolution of Mixed Martial Arts 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins with some comments on the new college wrestling season, and the important development of the formation of the College Wrestling Network, a joint effort of several wrestling media outlets designed to expand the coverage of college wrestling on the Internet and to promote the sport.

    In the main segment of this show, we speak with the legendary mixed martial arts matchmaker, promoter, and commentator, John Perretti.

    Among the many topics covered in this spirited and frank discussion were why the Brock Lesnar-Randy Couture fight at UFC 91 was a "debacle", why UFC is a "fossil" in terms of what is once was, the devolution of mixed martial arts, the importance of people like Wallid Ismail to the sport, the recent controversy over the promotion by UFC of anti-social behavior on "The Ultimate Fighter" television series, the issue of sportsmanship, and what the combat sports ought to be about.

    In addition, we both openly and enthusiastically endorsed the need for the formation of a fighters' union for mixed martial arts.

    No Holds Barred: Ricardo Lois Previews De La Hoya-Pacquiao 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Ricardo Lois, co-host of Boxing Confidential Radio. The main subject is the controversial fight between Oscar De La Hoya and Manny Pacquiao, which will take place Saturday, December 6, in Las Vegas, and will be shown in the U.S. on HBO Pay-Per-View. Pacquiao, who has fought at featherweight and super featherweight in recent years, and just moved up to lightweight in June, will be fighting the much larger De La Hoya at welterweight.

    In a lengthy interview, we discuss our criticisms of the De La Hoya-Pacquiao fight, why it is not good for boxing, how it is related to the decline of boxing in the U.S., the ethics of watching pay-per-views such as this one online on sites which do not hold their copyrights, and more.
