On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman offers a tribute to Jay Larkin, who was the head of the Showtime boxing program for over two decades, and the CEO of the now-defunct International Fight League mixed martial arts organization. Jay passed away Monday, August 9, from brain cancer, at the age of 59. We also discuss the use of green tea as one means to prevent and battle cancer.
We next review the Bellator 24 mixed martial arts show, which took place Thursday, August 12, in Hollywood, Florida. Their 115-pound women's tournament kicked off with impressive submission victories by Megumi Fujii over Carla Esparza, and Jessica Aguilar over Lynn Alvarez. We also discuss the first-round TKOs by Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard over Herbert Goodman in a non-title fight, and Neil Grove over Eddie Sanchez in the first bout of the Bellator heavyweight tournament.
And we discuss two important events for mixed martial arts in New York City: the MMA World Expo on November 12-13, and the talk by former UFC executive Campbell McLaren Tuesday, August 17, at New York Jiu-Jitsu about how the UFC got started.
