In a blistering interview, we discuss why this card epitomizes how not to run a mixed martial arts promotion. We target the selection of many of the fighters who were highlighted on this televised card, the lack of quality matchmaking, the often poor technique, the atrocious announcing, the horrible refereeing, the absence of submission attempts, the weak chins of so many fighters in mixed martial arts, the failure to develop new fighters, the related shortcut of bringing in competitors for so-called entertainment value, the continued misuse of the Internet by the suits running this organization, and more.
Despite some impressive performances by a few of the fighters, overall this card is indicative of "the devolution of mixed martial arts," stated John Perretti. You can hear just how and why on No Holds Barred.
