No Holds Barred: Robert Drysdale on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu All-Star Camp, Grappling, and Mixed Martial Arts 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Robert Drysdale, one of the most accomplished practitioners of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the world.

    He has won numerous world, national, and regional championships in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, as well as winning the absolute division at the 2007 ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championships, and by submission.

    From March 16 to March 26, the first annual Drysdale Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu All-Star Camp will take place at the Robert Drysdale Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Las Vegas, Nevada. This camp, which consists of ten days of intense BJJ training, is open to the public and to participants at all levels, from beginners to experienced fighters and black belts.

    We spoke with Robert Drysdale about this Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu All-Star Camp, the role of grappling and BJJ in the combat sports and mixed martial arts, the future of BJJ and grappling, where he plans to compete next both in grappling and mixed martial arts, and much more.

    No Holds Barred: John Perretti on Why We Watched Boxing over UFC This Weekend 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins the fourth year of this show as a podcast by speaking with the legendary matchmaker, promoter, announcer, and martial artist, and our senior correspondent on this show, John Perretti.

    This past Saturday night, March 7, there were two live televised fight cards on at the same time. One was an HBO boxing card featuring a TKO victory by unbeaten, rising junior middleweight James Kirkland over Joel Julio. The other was another UFC pay-per-view.

    In a lengthy discussion, we explain why we both chose to watch the boxing over the UFC (and it was not because of the price of the pay-per-view). We discuss the training methods used by James Kirkland, who is under the tutelage of former boxer Ann Wolfe. We also discuss why, despite excellent fights and fighters, televised boxing often comes off looking so lame, tired, and old. And we touch on many more issues in both boxing and mixed martial arts, including fighter safety.

    SecondsOut Radio: Khan-Barrera Preview, Knockout Weekend Review, PPV Glut, Showtime and the Internet 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on a good weekend of televised fights. These included the comeback decision win by Delvin Rodriguez over Shamone Alvarez, the second-round TKO by Victor Ortiz over Mike Arnaoutis, the breakout performance by James Kirkland in stopping Joel Julio at the end of six rounds, and the brutal knockout by Mike Alvarado of Emmanuel Clottey at 2:58 of the tenth and final round. We also discuss the implications of these fights for the rankings.

    This coming weekend marks the start of four straight weeks of mid-level pay-per-view telecasts in the U.S. The first of these, on March 14, will pit Amir Khan against the legendary but aging Marco Antonio Barrera. This is a major test for both fighters, although of a different kind for each. Can Khan, knocked out in the first round in September 2008 by little-known but unbeaten Breidis Prescott, defeat a top-level fighter? And can the 35-year-old Barrera, who has twice fought lower-level opposition since being dominated by Manny Pacquiao in October 2007, and who contemplated retirement, still safely and competitively compete in the ring?

    We had a chance on a recent media conference call to get comments from both Khan and Barrera. And we also comment on this glut of pay-per-views, and what it means, and doesn't mean, for boxing.

    Finally, we comment on the efforts to market and position the boxing shows on Showtime. Despite showing many excellent fights, Showtime is way behind their premium cable network rival, HBO, in popularity. We discuss some of the reasons why, in particular their failure to use the Internet and the Internet boxing media properly and effectively, and the almost total absence of the use of social media for their boxing program.

    It is free to listen to or download SecondsOut Radio, but you must register to gain access to it. Just click here, and listen, learn, and enjoy.
