On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Strikeforce light heavyweight champion "King" Mo Lawal about the upcoming fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Fabricio Werdum. This fight will be the main event this coming Saturday, June 26, on a joint Strikeforce-M-1 Global mixed martial arts card in San Jose, California, which will be shown live in the U.S. on Showtime.
"King" Mo, who regularly trains with Werdum, offered his advice for a game plan for both Fedor and Werdum to win. We discussed the technique we expect to see displayed in this fight, including the mix of grappling and striking each fighter needs to use. We also discussed the Andre Ward- Allan Green fight in the Showtime Super Six super middleweight boxing tournament, and how mixed martial arts fighters should incorporate boxing technique into their repertoires. "King" Mo also left us with a prediction for the Fedor-Werdum fight, filled us in on what is known as of now about his next fight on August 21 in Houston, and much more.
We also open with a brief recap of the exciting Bellator 23 mixed martial arts card of June 24, where Joe Warren won a controversial split decision in a great fight with Patricio "Pitbull" Freire in the featherweight tournament finals, Alexander Shlemenko scored a first-round TKO over Bryan Baker in the middleweight tournament finals, and Zoila Frausto shocked the world with a first-round knockout of world-ranked Rosi Sexton.
