No Holds Barred: Scott Coker of Strikeforce 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Scott Coker, the founder and CEO of the mixed martial arts company Strikeforce.

    Strikeforce announced Thursday, Feb. 5, that they had purchased key assets from ProElite, the parent company of EliteXC, including the contracts of numerous of their top and best-known fighters. EliteXC stopped running shows in October 2008. Strikeforce will also run live events to be televised in the U.S. on Showtime, with the first one being April 11 in San Jose, Calif. There are also plans for up to four live televised shows on CBS. Both Showtime and CBS had previously been airing EliteXC shows.

    In a lengthy interview, we discussed the status of the fighter contracts which were purchased by Strikeforce, which fighters Scott expects will fight for Strikeforce, their plans for the April 11 show and beyond, their deals with Showtime and CBS, their continuing weekly show on NBC, what to expect regarding the issue of EliteXC and Strikeforce champions, what has happened to kickboxing, the evolution of mixed martial arts as a sport, and much more.

    No Holds Barred: Bjorn Rebney of Bellator Fighting Championships; Cheating in MMA and Sports 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on the controversy which arose at the recent UFC event in the fight between Georges St-Pierre and BJ Penn. According to numerous reports, St-Pierre's corner had to be stopped by officials from the Nevada State Athletic Commission from continuing to grease his body between rounds. This controversy is discussed in the context of the exposures of widespread cheating in the sports world in general, and also, of course, in society.

    In our main interview, we speak with Bjorn Rebney, the founder and CEO of the Bellator Fighting Championships. This new mixed martial arts company will air its shows on the Spanish-language ESPN Deportes network in the U.S. for 12 consecutive Saturday nights, beginning April 4.

    In a lengthy interview, we discuss the vision and positioning of the Bellator Fighting Championships, which is primarily targeting a Latino audience. We discuss the fighters they have signed so far, their extended tournament format, the rules, the plans for both live events and televised shows, how they want to approach the non-Spanish-speaking audience, and much more.

    SecondsOut Radio: Vic Darchinyan, Jorge Arce, Bruce Silverglade 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman previews two very different boxing shows coming up this week.

    On Saturday, February 7, the long-awaited showdown between two champion sluggers, the IBF, WBC, and WBA 115-pound champion, Vic Darchinyan (31-1-1, 25 KOs), and the WBA interim super flyweight champion and former WBC 108 and 112-pound and WBO 108-pound champion, Jorge Arce (51-4-1, 39 KOs), takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. This fight will be shown in the U.S. on Showtime.

    We had a chance to speak with both Vic Darchinyan and Jorge Arce on a media conference call about this highly-anticipated fight, which most people expect to be one of the most action-packed of the year.

    Also this coming week, on Tuesday, February 3, the first in a series of local shows featuring up-and-coming fighters and run by the world-famous Gleason's Gym will take place at the Masonic Temple in Brooklyn, New York. Most of the fights will be four-rounders, plus a main event featuring two top-level super flyweights, Rafael Concepcion (12-3-1, 8 KOs) against veteran Kermin Guardia (37-8, 21 KOs). This card marks the return to promoting after a two-decade long absence by Bruce Silverglade, who owns Gleason's Gym.

    At a news conference this past week at Portobello's Pizzeria and Sicilian Kitchen in New York, we spoke with Bruce Silverglade about his goals as a promoter and with these shows.
