No Holds Barred: Jorge Santiago on his MMA Fight of the Year Candidate 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with American Top Team mixed martial arts fighter and Sengoku middleweight champion Jorge Santiago.

In a fight being hailed as epic, historic, and a certainty for the 2010 MMA fight of the year, Jorge Santiago successfully defended his title by stopping Kazuo Misaki in the fifth and last round of the main event of Sengoku 14 on Sunday, August 22, 2010, in Tokyo, Japan.

After being down on the scorecards, Jorge Santiago came back with a furious attack at the very end of the fourth round and all throughout the fifth round, forcing the corner of Misaki to throw in the towel with only about 30 seconds remaining in the fight. This fight was originally broadcast live in the U.S. on HDNet, and has also been posted on YouTube. This see-saw, non-stop battle was a rematch of their first fight from January 2009, which was also won by Jorge Santiago with a come-from-behind performance in the fifth round.

We spoke Friday afternoon about this great fight, and analyzed its many highlights and ups and downs. While he has long been a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, we discussed his development as a standup fighter and the notable improvements in his striking. We also discussed the differences between fighting in the U.S. and Japan, and how fighters are allowed to "do more" in terms of utilizing various grappling and striking techniques in Japan than in the U.S. He reviewed his growth as a fighter since fighting in UFC in 2006 and Strikeforce in 2007, and stated that he once again wants to fight in the U.S., where he has lived for many years, while still fighting in Japan. And we discussed when he wants to return to action, and much more.

This event takes place Monday, September 6, through Sunday, September 12, at the Sports Centre Olimpiskiy in Moscow, Russia.

Our interview previewed this event by focusing upon many of the top and champion wrestlers from around the world in the three styles which will be contested: men's and women's freestyle wrestling, and Greco-Roman wrestling. We discussed the U.S. entries this year, and their chances of winning medals against the international competition.

We also discussed the significance of this event being held in Russia this year, the always-controversial rules of wrestling, the annual predictions of international wrestling journalists of gold medal winners (including both of us), how to follow this event live, and more.

No Holds Barred: Renzo Gracie 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and mixed martial arts legend Renzo Gracie.

We spoke Tuesday afternoon at the Renzo Gracie Academy New York City about his most recent mixed martial arts fight, at UFC 112 on April 10, 2010, in Abu Dhabi, against Matt Hughes. We discussed some of his greatest and most memorable fights, including his 1995 World Combat Championship tournament win, his 1996 victory over Oleg Taktarov, and his 2000 loss to Kazushi Sakuraba. He explained why "grappling is the backbone of MMA" and the key role played by leading figures in Abu Dhabi in helping both grappling and mixed martial arts. He commented on how he misses the now-defunct International Fight League (IFL). He also argued that New York should finally sanction mixed martial arts and provide more opportunities for the people in New York, including the youth.

We also discussed the Renzo Gracie Open No-Gi 2010 tournament, which takes place Friday, November 12, and Saturday, November 13, at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, at the second annual MMA WORLD EXPO. This is an open grappling tournament with numerous divisions, and will be a highlight of this EXPO.

No Holds Barred: Joe Soto-Joe Warren Bellator Preview, Segura-Calderon Fight of Year Candidate, World Combat Games, and More 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the important Joe Soto-Joe Warren Bellator featherweight title fight, discusses the Giovanni Segura-Ivan Calderon fight of the year candidate in boxing, explains the unity of all the combat sports, and analyzes more recent events in the combat sports.

Bellator featherweight champion Joe Soto will defend his title against Bellator featherweight tournament winner Joe Warren Thursday, September 2, in San Antonio, Texas, on a card which will air live in the U.S. on Fox Sports Net. The 33-year-old Warren, a 2006 world champion in Greco-Roman wrestling, is 5-1 in mixed martial arts, and has the edge in level of competition in mixed martial arts and accomplishments in wrestling. But Soto, at just age 23, is unbeaten in mixed martial arts at 9-0, winning four of his fights by submission and four by knockout. This is a fight which mixed martial arts fans should not miss.

Many people likely missed another fight of the year candidate in boxing this past Saturday, August 28, as Giovanni Segura knocked out previously-unbeaten Ivan Calderon to unify two 108-pound belts. We discuss this all-action fight, which took place in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico.

We also compare the Royce Gracie-Art Jimmerson fight at the first Ultimate Fighting Championship in 1993 to the Randy Couture-James Toney fight this past Saturday, analyze the rise of fighters from Russia and Eastern Europe in mixed martial arts, preview important boxing matches this weekend involving 105-pound champion Roman Gonzalez of Nicaragua and 130-pound champion Roman Martinez of Puerto Rico, note the Pacquiao-Margarito media tour and what this fight is doing to boxing, discuss the first-ever SportAccord World Combat Games which are underway in Beijing, and much more in the world of combat sports.
