No Holds Barred: Jessica Aguilar 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with mixed martial arts fighter and grappler Jessica Aguilar.

A grappling world champion in both 2009 and 2010, she will be fighting in the eight-woman, 115-pound mixed martial arts tournament promoted by the Bellator Fighting Championships. Her first fight will be against Lynn Alvarez at Bellator 24 on Thursday, August 12, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and shown live in the U.S. on Fox Sports Net.

We spoke by phone Tuesday about her combat sports career. In a lengthy and animated discussion, she outlined her intriguing story of how she became involved with mixed martial arts, grappling, and jiu-jitsu, almost by accident. She explained in detail why she is today so passionate about these combat sports, what they mean to her, and why more women should take them up. She discussed her virtual "family" at American Top Team, where she trains. She stressed why she believes that "this is my time" to become successful in mixed martial arts, win this very competitive tournament, and emerge as a star in this sport, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Robert Drysdale and His Pro MMA Debut 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and ADCC world champion Robert Drysdale.

He will be making his professional mixed martial arts debut this Saturday, July 17, on the AFC 3: Evolution card promoted by the Armageddon Fighting Championships. This card will be held at the Bear Mountain Arena in Colwood (Victoria), British Columbia, Canada. It will be shown live on an Internet pay-per-view.

After a successful amateur mixed martial arts debut in 2008, Robert Drysdale will now face Bastien Huveneers (8-2-1) of Vancouver, a fighter who has not lost since 2006.

We spoke with Robert Drysdale Saturday afternoon by phone about his transition to mixed martial arts. He explained why he has become a professional mixed martial arts fighter, and why he enjoys boxing and kickboxing while still remaining based in jiu-jitsu. We also discussed the viability of a professional league for some style of grappling, as well as problems in the rules and format of jiu-jitsu events which have hindered their appeal to fans. He also outlined his extensive use of the Internet to provide online training for people, and also expand the influence of his schools, whose main headquarters are in Las Vegas, Nevada.

No Holds Barred: Ricardo Liborio 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again has the pleasure of speaking with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and grappling legend Ricardo Liborio.

Ricardo Liborio is the co-owner and head instructor for American Top Team, and also the head coach of the USA Grappling team.

Our latest discussion started by considering the "Werdum Effect" and the renaissance of jiu-jitsu and grappling techniques in mixed martial arts. We discussed how many of the fighters on the American Top Team roster have been doing of late in mixed martial arts and what they have planned, including Hector Lombard, Jessica Aguilar, Dan Hornbuckle, Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante, Bobby Lashley, Jeff Monson, and more. We focused on the close relation of wrestling and grappling, how grappling might become an Olympic sport, the role of USA Grappling, and the success in both mixed martial arts and grappling of many of the grappling world champions. We also discussed the various organizations in mixed martial arts, the upcoming MMA World Expo in New York November 12-13, the benefits of drinking green tea, eating cupcakes, and much more.
