On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with former mixed martial arts fighter and wrestler, the founder of the USWF (Unified Shoot Wrestling Federation), and current wrestling coach Steve Nelson. He will be covering for No Holds Barred the mixed martial arts pay-per-view event Shark Fights 13.
This card takes place Saturday, September 11, in Steve's hometown, the great fight town of Amarillo, Texas, at the Amarillo Civic Center Coliseum. The main event will feature Keith Jardine facing Shark Fights light heavyweight champion Trevor Prangley in a non-title bout.
This will be the first attempt at a pay-per-view telecast by Shark Fight Promotions, and our discussion examined the prospects for success for this relatively young promotion, which was founded in 2007. We analyzed the huge risk they are taking by spending a great deal of money to put together this show, what they have to do at least to break even, and the chances of them doing so.
We also discussed the fight card, which generally seems to have evenly-matched fights. Besides the Jardine-Prangley fight, the televised card features Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou fighting Houston Alexander in a light heavyweight bout, Jorge Masvidal fighting Paul Daley in a welterweight bout, Joey Villasenor fighting Danillo Villafort in a middleweight bout, and Brock Larson fighting Tarec Saffiedine in a welterweight bout.
In addition, we commented on how this promotion is building this show by emphasizing respect for, and among, all the fighters.
