No Holds Barred: Bob Carson Previews Strikeforce Miami 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with our colleague and correspondent Bob Carson, who is also the host of Carson's Corner. We preview the Strikeforce: Miami mixed martial arts card, which takes place this Saturday, January 30, at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida, near Miami. It will be televised live in the U.S. on Showtime.

In our lengthy discussion, we break down the strengths and weaknesses of the main fighters on this card, which features two title fights.

The main event has Cesar Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Nick Diaz facing the Dream welterweight champion Marius Zaromskis for the Strikeforce welterweight title. The Strikeforce women's 145-pound champion Cris "Cyborg" Santos of the legendary Chute Boxe team from Curitiba, Brazil, defends her belt against the versatile Marloes Coenen of Deventer, Holland.

Also on the televised card, Robbie Lawler returns to Strikeforce against Melvin Manhoef (24-6-1) in a middleweight fight which is expected to be a slugfest. Former NAIA college wrestling champion Bobby Lashley makes his Strikeforce debut against veteran Wes Sims. And in a controversial bout, 47-year-old former football star Herschel Walker makes his MMA debut against Greg Nagy of Phoenix, Arizona.

Also on the card, former IFL welterweight champion Jay Hieron takes on veteran Joe Riggs. That fight will be streamed live and for free on the EA Sports MMA web site at http://www.easportsmma.com.

As usual, we hold nothing back in analyzing what to expect on this overall worthwhile card, which we do recommend people view. We highlight the expected good and the bad of this card, including the potential perils of the fighting debut of the 47-year-old Walker. We also discuss the pros and cons of the build-up for this card, including a weak use of the Internet and social networking by Strikeforce and Showtime. And we also comment upon the business state of mixed martial arts, as well as the preposterous and largely unchallenged claim by UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar that he was recently cured of an illness by a "miracle".

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with one of the masters and top coaches in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and grappling, Renato Tavares.

His organization, the North American Fight Association, will be hosting the Abu Dhabi Pro East Coast Trials. This tournament takes place Sunday, January 31, 2010, at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida.

This is a qualifying event for the richest and most prestigious Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu event in the world, the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Cup 2010.

That event takes place April 15-17 in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, and will distribute the biggest prize in the history of Jiu-Jitsu, US$150,000.

The qualifiers from the East Coast Trials will be flown to Abu Dhabi to represent the U.S. at the Abu Dhabi Pro Jiu-Jitsu Cup.

In our interview with Renato Tavares, we discuss the results from the West Coast Trials, the importance of the East Coast Trials, some of the competitors expected to compete, how to get more information about this event, and more.

Results from the East Coast Trials will be posted in real time on Twitter here.

More information on the many international qualifying events for the Abu Dhabi Pro Jiu-Jitsu Cup can be found on the Emirates One News and the ADCC News.

No Holds Barred: John Perretti Interviews Karl List, Part Two, and More Filth from Boxing 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host and producer Eddie Goldman presents the second in a series of interviews by our colleague and senior correspondent John Perretti with the noted fitness expert and personal trainer Karl List.

Karl List is a fitness expert with over 20 years of experience as a personal trainer, and was a natural (drug-free) bodybuilding champion. He and his wife and business partner, Jodi Friedman List, are the co-owners of List Integrated Systematic Training. Their clients are trained at the world-famous Gold's Gym in Venice, California, where Karl is the only trainer who maintains a client base of personal trainers.

In that interview, John Perretti and Karl List discuss the prevalence of injuries from the use of barbells and bench pressing, what is functional strength for athletes, why training methods are poor selections for athletes, why free body exercises are important, why heavyweight boxers like the Klitschko brothers have bad legs, why the back squat is the king of exercises, how to do it properly, and more.

Before that interview, we open with a commentary on some of the latest filth in the past week from boxing. We discuss the very predictable results from the January 23 Madison Square Garden card shown on HBO, the attempt to reinstate Antonio Margarito after his license was revoked for attempting to load his gloves last year in a fight with Shane Mosley, whether boxing would have been better off if promoter Bob Arum had been banned from boxing after admitting that he had paid bribes in the IBF scandal, and more.
