On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Donovan Craig, the editor-in-chief of Fight! Magazine. We opened by discussing his recent trip to Russia, where he covered the M-1 Selection 2010 - Eastern and Western Europe Finals, on July 22 in Moscow, Russia, and interviewed the legendary mixed martial arts fighter, Fedor Emelianenko.
In a lively and lengthy interview, we discussed the high level of mixed martial arts fighters in these M-1 events in Europe, including the unbeaten Magomed Shikhshabekov, who won the super fight at the event he covered. We discussed the potential for the next great wave of mixed martial arts fighters to come from Eastern Europe, and why that is. We also delved a bit into the history, politics, and economics of the collapse of the old Soviet Union, and how that affects the combat sports. We also discussed boxing and mixed martial arts, and much more.
