No Holds Barred: John Perretti on Injuries, Violence, and the Need for Change in Combat Sports 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with former world kickboxing champion, former UFC and Extreme Fighting matchmaker, and our senior correspondent, John Perretti.

We continue our series of discussions on the critical issue of the increasing number of grave and major injuries in the combat and contact sports. As athletes get bigger, stronger, and faster than ever, and as they learn to use the rules of their sports to their advantage better, sports like American football, boxing, and mixed martial arts are becoming more dangerous and violent.

We thus examine what has been going on in these sports, what the consequences of their current direction will be, what changes they have or have not been making to protect their athletes, and what changes they should be making. We also discuss how the opponents of mixed martial arts are becoming more sophisticated (or, rather, less ignorant) in their opposition to legalizing the sport.

The No Holds Barred theme song is called "The Heist", by Ian Carpenter.
