No Holds Barred: Jay Larkin on the Rise and Fall of the International Fight League 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Jay Larkin, the former head of the Showtime boxing program, and more recently the CEO of the International Fight League (IFL) mixed martial arts company. Once the second most popular mixed martial arts company in America, the IFL stopped running shows in 2008 after losing millions of dollars, and is no longer in business.

    In a lengthy, candid, and spirited interview, we discuss the rise and fall of the IFL, some of the mistakes that company made, the status of mixed martial arts in America, the role of grappling in mixed martial arts, how MMA compares to boxing, the media bias which the IFL faced, and much more.

    The No Holds Barred theme song is called "The Heist", by musician Ian Carpenter.

    That guy is a total sour puss. No wonder he couldn't succeed.

    Zuffa is the obstacle, by the way. Larkin speaks as if zuffa and the brands they sell are the same thing. We only need to destroy zuffa. There are a number of options.
