No Holds Barred: Strikeforce, Boxing, Doping, Wrestling, Grappling 

(Photo: Esther Lin/Strikeforce)

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by reviewing the disappointing Strikeforce Challengers mixed martial arts card held February 26 in San Jose, California. We criticize the lack of effective grappling and striking by many of the fighters on that card.

We also discuss the latest developments in the battle against dope cheating, including the first positive test of a dope cheat for use of human growth hormone, and how the athletic commissions regulating boxing and mixed martial arts have ignored this important development.

With all these problems in mixed martial arts and boxing, we thus conclude by looking forward to the upcoming championship tournaments in college wrestling, the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Cup 2010, the start of the 2010 roller derby season, and more.

This type of analysis is what No Holds Barred is about, so listen, learn, comment, and enjoy.

No Holds Barred: Stephen Quadros Previews February 26 Strikeforce Challengers Card 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with "The Fight Professor", the veteran broadcaster, actor, and musician Stephen Quadros.

He will be one of the announcers on the live Showtime telecast of the Strikeforce Challengers mixed martial arts card taking place this Friday night, February 26, at the Civic Auditorium in San Jose, California.

The main event of this card pits MMA veteran Trevor Prangley against the exciting Karl "The Psycho" Amoussou in a middleweight fight. The women fighters will once again try to steal the show, as the unbeaten Sarah Kaufman faces Takayo Hashi of Japan for the vacant Strikeforce women's featherweight (135-pound) championship. In another fight to advance the winner towards possible stardom, up-and-coming fighter Luke Rockhold takes on former University of Iowa Hawkeye All-American wrestler Paul Bradley in a middleweight contest. Also on the televised card, James Terry takes on Tarec Saffiedine and Raul Castillo fights Yancy Medeiros.

In a lengthy discussion, we previewed this card with "The Fight Professor". We discussed what we might expect in each televised fight. We also commented upon the latest news about Strikeforce.

No Holds Barred: Devon Alexander, Juan Urango, Don King 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the 140-pound title unification fight between WBC champion Devon Alexander (19-0, 12 KOs) and IBF champion Juan Urango (22-2-1, 17 KOs). This fight will take place Saturday, March 6, at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, and be shown live in the U.S. on HBO.

We spoke with both Devon Alexander and Juan Urango on a media conference call this past week, and the discussion of how they each will approach this fight resulted in some verbal fireworks. We also spoke with Don King, who promotes Alexander, about the importance of title unification fights, and also got comments from him on the importance of the Internet media.

In addition, we contrast the Alexander-Urango fight, which should be very competitive, with the numerous mismatches and showcase fights typical of boxing, such as the Giovanni Segura-Walter Tello brawl this past Saturday night, February 20, which was entertaining but one-sided.
