On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by reviewing the disappointing Strikeforce Challengers mixed martial arts card held February 26 in San Jose, California. We criticize the lack of effective grappling and striking by many of the fighters on that card.
We also discuss the latest developments in the battle against dope cheating, including the first positive test of a dope cheat for use of human growth hormone, and how the athletic commissions regulating boxing and mixed martial arts have ignored this important development.
With all these problems in mixed martial arts and boxing, we thus conclude by looking forward to the upcoming championship tournaments in college wrestling, the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Cup 2010, the start of the 2010 roller derby season, and more.
This type of analysis is what No Holds Barred is about, so listen, learn, comment, and enjoy.
