No Holds Barred: Renzo Gracie, Chris Weidman, and Luca Atalla on ADCC East Coast Trials 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on some recent issues in mixed martial arts. We applaud the wise contract negotiations by Mirko Cro Cop with the UFC and Dream, and condemn the absurd fight between former top heavyweight boxer Ray Mercer and former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia, won by Mercer with a one-punch knockout.

This past Saturday, June 13, the ADCC East Coast Trials were held at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, New Jersey. The winners of the five weight classes contested all earned berths in the 2009 ADCC Submission Fighting World Championship, which will be held September 26-27 in Barcelona, Spain.

Right after his match, we had a chance to speak with Chris Weidman of Serra Jiu-Jitsu, who defeated James Brasco (Pablo Popovitch) by anaconda choke in the middleweight finals. We spoke about this match, what it means for his career, his wrestling background, and his plans in both grappling and mixed martial arts.

At this event was the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, grappling, and mixed martial arts legend Renzo Gracie. As always, Renzo had some very poignant comments about the importance of what we had just witnessed.

We also spoke with our old colleague Luca Atalla of Gracie Magazine. Luca has covered all the ADCC world championships, so his comments about these East Coast Trials were particularly insightful.

Good stuff.

Tim Sylvia has never been known as a great striker, even for MMA. I'm not against an MMA fighter trying their hands at boxing but I guess they delude themselves.

Perhaps only a few mma'ers could strike with even an average professional boxer. MMA fighters and fans alike have no clue what they're looking at in regards to striking. Case in point, they called Frank Mir good at "stand-up" after he beat a Nog who appeared as if he just rolled out of a hospital bed. They've also said Phil Baroni's strength was striking. People just repeat the things joe rogan types say. Despite his unfathomable ability to earn a living at it, joe rogan isn't even insightful as a comedian. I don't see why his analysis would be any better of "fight science."
