No Holds Barred: King Mo Lawal Prepares for Sengoku 7 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on the recent deaths of mixed martial arts fighters Justin Eilers and Justin Levens, and what this might possibly reflect about that sport. We also raise some major criticisms of the Sengoku 7 mixed martial arts card, which takes place Sunday, January 4, 2009, at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, near Tokyo. Fighting on that card will be heavyweight Antonio Silva, even though he is currently under suspension by the California State Athletic Commission for steroid use.

    In our main interview segment, we speak with three-time U.S. national freestyle wrestling champion and now a mixed martial arts fighter with a record of 2-0, King Mo Lawal. Mo, a light heavyweight, will next be fighting veteran Yukiya Naito on that same Sengoku 7 card.

    In a lengthy interview, we discussed what Mo knows about Yukiya Naito, how Mo prepared for this fight by training in Brazil, his plans to continue competing in wrestling and also to become a boxer, the role of freestyle and folkstyle wrestling in mixed martial arts, his attitude towards submissions, his King Mo persona in Japan and his Queens, and more.

    No Holds Barred: Teimoc Johnston-Ono and the Grappling Arts 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with one of the most well-rounded masters in grappling, Teimoc Johnston-Ono.

    Teimoc's numerous accomplishments include being a member of the 1976 U.S. Olympic judo team, serving as head judo coach at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, being the only person to win the prestigious World Masters competition in both judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and holding black belts in both judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Among his various instructional duties, he is now teaching both judo and submission grappling at the Five Points Academy in downtown New York City five nights a week.

    We had a chance this week to speak with Teimoc at length right after one of his classes at the Five Points Academy. We discussed what he teaches his students, the key role of grappling in the combat sports and martial arts, the role and changing nature of judo, why the ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship is the most important grappling event in the world, the downplaying of the role of grappling by many mixed martial arts companies, and much more.

    SecondsOut Radio: Thomas Hauser, and Weekend Boos 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman opens by serving up a volley of boos to the judges in the Nikolai Valuev-Evander Holyfield fight, to writers from Yahoo and Sports Illustrated, and to the American television networks for failing to make easily accessible and available the many major fights of interest which took place this past weekend.

    In our main interview segment, we speak with the award-winning boxing writer and author, Thomas Hauser of SecondsOut.com. In a lengthy discussion, we touch on numerous topics, including on the recent merger between SecondsOut.com and MaxBoxing.com, the growth of piracy of televised boxing shows on the Internet, the flawed economic model of boxing which places major reliance on pay-per-views, the responsibility of boxing journalists and problems faced by them, a new controversy in the Boxing Writers Association of America, and much more.

    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.
