No Holds Barred: Daniel Cormier, 2-0 in MMA 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Daniel Cormier, the 2007 world bronze medalist and two-time U.S. Olympian in freestyle wrestling, who was victorious on March 26 in his second mixed martial arts fight with a first-round knockout over John Devine on a Strikeforce card in Fresno, California. You can watch this fight here.

We spoke about this fight and how and why he was able to triumph so quickly in it. He explained how he is applying and incorporating solid boxing technique into his mixed martial arts offense and defense. We discussed why this fight was not televised by Showtime, which has drawn criticism from many fans. We of course discussed the 2010 NCAA Div. I Wrestling Championships, how this remains a tremendous event, some of the top performances at it, and why some colleges produce so many mixed martial arts fighters, including Oklahoma State, where he wrestled and was an All-American. We discussed how many who think they understand mixed martial arts have little or no understanding of the level of wrestling and athleticism in freestyle, in which he won his world bronze medal in 2007 and was a two-time Olympian, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Royler Gracie 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with one of the legends of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Royler Gracie.

The Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship 2010 is set to take place April 8 through April 11 at the Bren Events Center at the University of California, Irvine. This is the largest jiu-jitsu tournament in the world, and we discussed why it remains so popular.

We also discussed the potential for jiu-jitsu to emerge as a popular spectator sport, why jiu-jitsu can become bigger than mixed martial arts, the relation of jiu-jitsu to mixed martial arts, his own preference between these two sports in which he has competed, why he believes that his cousin Renzo Gracie will triumph in his upcoming UFC fight with Matt Hughes, his many current activities, and much more.

There is much wisdom to be gained from this discussion with one of the legendary members of the legendary Gracie family, and we have it right here for you on No Holds Barred.

No Holds Barred: John Perretti on the Dirrell-Abraham Mess 


Photo: Tom Casino/Showtime

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with the legendary matchmaker and martial artist, and our senior correspondent, John Perretti, about the Andre Dirrell-Arthur Abraham fight. This fight took place Saturday, March 27, in Detroit, Michigan, and was televised in the U.S. on Showtime as part of the Super Six super middleweight tournament. In that fight, Dirrell was outboxing Abraham and, after 10 rounds, was far ahead on the scorecards, when Abraham hit Dirrell after he had slipped to the canvas and was still down. Abraham was then disqualified for an intentional foul which knocked Dirrell out.

We dissect this situation by noting how Dirrell, at the time of the stoppage, had been fighting the best fight of his professional career. We discuss his technique, timing, and execution, which took Abraham, the favorite before the fight, out of his game plan. We focus on the closing scenario itself, and whether or not Dirrell could be accused of acting and pretending he was more hurt than he was. We discuss the specious and contradictory justifications put forth by Abraham for the decisive, illegal blow. We again rail against yet another example of ineptitude by the referee in this fight, which seems to be the norm for many referees in both boxing and mixed martial arts. We examine the possible career-changing effects of the concussion suffered by Dirrell, and question the medical attention he received right after the fight. And we relate this latest fiasco in what should have been a classic fight to how fighters are abused, to the continued decline of boxing, and much more.
