No Holds Barred: NHB E-Mailbag on BLAF, Dr. Margaret Goodman on Cyborg-Akano and Margarito Controversies 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by briefly commenting on the breaking news about the defamation suit filed by attorney Rob Maysey, who is the founder of the Mixed Martial Arts Fighters Association, against CraveOnline, the parent company of the Sherdog.com web site. We expect to have more on this story shortly.

    In a follow-up to our last show, we have a new interview with Dr. Margaret Goodman, a neurologist and former chairman of the Medical Advisory Board of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, who is now also the medical correspondent for No Holds Barred. We discuss two major controversies in mixed martial arts and boxing: the seven-pound weight discrepancy between Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos and Hitomi Akano in their April 11 Strikeforce mixed martial arts fight in San Jose, Calif., and the ongoing scandal involving the hand wraps trainer Javier Capetillo attempted to place on Antonio Margarito for his Jan. 24 boxing match with Shane Mosley, which have since been found to have contained the ingredients used to make plaster of Paris. Dr. Goodman tells it like it is on these important issues.

    Next, we go into the No Holds Barred e-mailbag to hear what the listeners of this show think about the issues that have been raised here. Particularly addressed is the recent video blog rant by BLAF aka UFC president Dana White, which was filled with misogynistic, homophobic, and other anti-social and negative epithets.

    As expected, we received numerous intelligent, witty, and socially conscious comments, and you can hear those here as well.

    No Holds Barred: Dr. Margaret Goodman on Doping, Fighter Health and Safety, and What Must Be Done 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Dr. Margaret Goodman, a neurologist and former chairman of the Medical Advisory Board of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Dr. Goodman is now also the medical correspondent for No Holds Barred, and we are very proud to be associated with her.

    This lengthy interview, conducted March 12, first was posted on SecondsOut Radio in two parts. Here we have it in its entirety.

    The topics include why certain substances such as steroids and marijuana are dangerous to the health of fighters and are thus banned in the combat sports. We also discuss many other issues related to the health and safety of fighters, especially what can be done to improve the health and safety measures in the combat sports, and what role a national boxing commission in the U.S. should play.

    SecondsOut Radio: Can Chris Arreola Become Heavyweight Champion of the World? 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman discusses the fourth-round knockout victory by heavyweight Chris Arreola (27-0, 24 KOs) over the veteran former title challenger, Jameel McCline (39-10-3, 23 KOs), Saturday, April 11, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    We examine Arreola's career, the potential for him to get a title shot against WBC champion Vitali Klitschko, how he might fare, how he has strong support from the boxing establishment, but also how he may be blowing the opportunity of a lifetime by not training properly and continuing to come into the ring carrying too much weight.

    In addition, we critique some of the historical analysis in the HBO documentary on the Ali-Frazier 3 "Thrilla in Manila" fight.

    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.
