No Holds Barred: Carlos Diaz and Brett Boyce on ADCC Regional Championships 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman continues our coverage of the worldwide grappling revival by focusing on the ADCC Regional Championships.

Three events are scheduled in the coming weeks in the U.S. on this newly-created circuit, which uses the same rules as those of the Abu Dhabi Combat Club's Submission Fighting World Championships.

On Friday, July 24, and Saturday, July 25, the ADCC Texas Championships will take place at the Legends Sports Complex in Spring, Texas, near Houston. The first day will feature a free seminar for registrants with ADCC standout and two-time finalist Pablo Popovitch, as well as weigh-ins and registration. After a rules meeting and late weigh-ins and registration, the tournament will begin Saturday at 9:30 AM.

The following weekend, Friday, July 31, and Saturday, August 1, the ADCC Las Vegas Championships will take place at Bally's Event Center. There is a similar format, with a free seminar for registrants that Friday evening with two-time ADCC champion Jeff Monson.

On August 14 and 15, the tournaments move north, as the ADCC Northeast Regional Championships take place at the Richard J. Codey Arena in South Mountain, New Jersey, near West Orange. Registrants will also have a free seminar with three-time ADCC champion Marcelo Garcia.

To introduce us to this important and innovative series of events, we spoke with Carlos Diaz and Brett Boyce of the ADCC Regional Championships. They explained the origin and goals of these events, how and why they are different from other grappling tournaments, precisely what the format for them will be, what their plans for future tournaments are, and much more.

No Holds Barred: World Boxing Classic Preview with Carl Froch, Mikkel Kessler, Arthur Abraham, Andre Dirrell, Ken Hershman, Steve Farhood, Lou DiBella 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews one of the most innovative and welcome developments in boxing, the Super Six World Boxing Classic, a round-robin, six-fighter tournament in the super middleweight division featuring the best fighters in the world at that weight.

Competing in this tournament are the unbeaten WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch (25-0, 20 KOs) of England, the WBA super middleweight champion Mikkel Kessler (41-1, 31 KOs) of Denmark, the former undisputed middleweight world champion Jermain Taylor (28-3-1, 17 KOs) of Little Rock, Ark., the now-former and still-unbeaten IBF middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (30-0, 24 KOs) of Germany, the 2004 Olympic gold medalist and unbeaten WBC number one contender Andre Ward (19-0, 12 KOs) of Oakland, Calif., and the 2004 Olympic bronze medalist and unbeaten WBC number two contender Andre Dirrell (18-0, 13 KOs) of Flint, Mich.

The winner of this tournament is certain to be regarded as the true super middleweight champion of the world.

The opening round will have three fights, beginning this fall, on dates and at locations to be announced. Carl Froch will face Andre Dirrell, Mikkel Kessler will face Andre Ward, and Arthur Abraham will face Jermain Taylor.

At the kickoff news conference at Madison Square Garden in New York this Monday for this history-making event, we had a chance to speak with fighters Carl Froch, Mikkel Kessler, Arthur Abraham, and Andre Dirrell about this tournament and their fights. We also spoke with promoters Lou DiBella and Dan Goossen, with boxing writer and television analyst Steve Farhood, and with Ken Hershman, senior vice president and general manager of Showtime Sports, which is the key force behind this tournament and will televise it in the U.S.

No Holds Barred: Bob Carson Deconstructs UFC 100 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with our correspondent Bob Carson, who is also the host of the Carson's Corner podcast.

Bob had the misfortune of having viewed the latest Zuffa spectacle, UFC 100, this past Saturday night, July 11. The atmosphere and the direct imitation of the fake pro "wrestling" left him and many others, as he put it, "outraged." He requested to be come on No Holds Barred to explain just why, and we were more than willing to oblige him.

So sit back and listen to UFC 100 be deconstructed, to hear how and why the Zuffa owners are treating their fans like marks, and to learn why we advise people not to watch or report about their events anymore.

No Holds Barred: Beatrix Slaughter and Hard Anya of Gotham Girls Roller Derby 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with two skaters from the Gotham Girls Roller Derby, Beatrix Slaughter of the Bronx Gridlock and Hard Anya of the Brooklyn Bombshells.

Their two teams had a bout Sat., July 11, in which Bronx won, 131-58, after the score was tied 40-40 towards the end of the first half. With this victory, the Bronx Gridlock, the 2007 Gotham Girls Roller Derby league champions, clinch a berth in the 2009 league championships against the Manhattan Mayhem. Bronx will also play Manhattan on August 8 in the last regular season matchup for both.

Right after the bout, we spoke with both Beatrix Slaughter and Hard Anya. Although they had just been competing hard against each other, they spoke with us together, once again showing the deep camaraderie which is embedded in the world of roller derby, the fastest-growing sport in America.

We spoke with them both about this game, the return to skating by Beatrix after an injury last season, the June 19 come-from-behind 84-76 victory by the Gotham Girls All-Stars over the legendary Texas Rollergirls, why roller derby is still so much fun, and more.

As a league, the Gotham Girls Roller Derby won the 2008 Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) national championship, and are still undefeated and ranked number one in the U.S. The 2009 WFTDA Nationals Tournament will take place November 13-15 in Philadelphia, PA.
