On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with mixed martial arts fighter and former wrestler Kenny "Deuce" Garner, who will fight in the heavyweight finals of the M-1 Global Americas Selection tournament Saturday, September 18, 2010, at Bally's Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. His opponent will be Pat Bennett, who had been a two-time Div. 3 All-American wrestler at SUNY-Brockport. We spoke with the colorful Kenny Garner by phone to get his view on how this fight, which is expected to feature a lot of action, will go.
We open the show by discussing some of the lessons from the recently-concluded World Championships of Wrestling, which took place September 6-12 in Moscow. This was one of the most exciting world championships in recent memory, and also saw the wrestlers using some amazing techniques, but this event got little attention outside the wrestling community. We explain some of the reasons why, and offer some suggestions.
In addition, we squarely address the myth that wrestling is a "boring" sport. While some wrestlers may wrestle a boring style, the philosophy behind the sport emphasizes seeking dominance. We comment on this issue both regarding wrestling as a sport, and wrestling and wrestlers in mixed martial arts, borrowing some advice from wrestling legend Dan Gable.
