No Holds Barred: Todd Hester of Gladiator Magazine on Art of War 12 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents the third in our series of shows reviewing the historic Art of War 12 mixed martial arts card, which we covered live from Beijing, China, Saturday, May 23, 2009.

    Todd Hester, the veteran mixed martial arts and grappling journalist, who first trained with the Gracies over 20 years ago, and covered the first UFC live, was also in Beijing for Art of War 12. He is now the editor and publisher of Gladiator Magazine, as well as a correspondent on this show and an old friend and colleague.

    We had a chance to speak with him at length while we were in Beijing. We began with an interesting discussion about our observations about China as a society, refuting some common misconceptions held primarily in the West about it. We then reviewed the Art of War 12 card, discussed star fighters Wu Hao Tian and Rolles Gracie, analyzed the potential for the Art of War Fighting Championship to become as popular and successful as the Pride Fighting Championships were in their heyday, and much more.

    No Holds Barred: Wu Hao Tian, Rolles Gracie, and Carlos Santos on Art of War 12 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents the second in our series of shows reviewing the historic Art of War 12 mixed martial arts card, which we covered live from Beijing, China, Saturday, May 23, 2009.

    We begin by commenting on some aspects of the international economic situation which affect the growth of the Art of War Fighting Championship, in which the economy of China is rising while those of the West and elsewhere are declining. We also comment on some positive and helpful suggestions which have been made to the Art of War Fighting Championship about making their fight videos and information more available online.

    Right after the Art of War 12 card concluded at the National Olympic Sports Centre Gymnasium in Beijing, we had a chance to speak with Carlos Santos, the head coach of the Emirates Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Team, about this card.

    We spoke with the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and now mixed martial arts fighter Rolles Gracie of Brazil and the U.S. about his first round victory over Baga Agaev of Russia on this card by rear naked choke.

    And, at the postfight banquet, we spoke with the top star of this show, the 22-year-old phenom from China, Wu Hao Tian, who defeated Yutaka Kobayashi of Japan by TKO in the first round.
