No Holds Barred: Kenny Garner, M-1 Selection, Wrestling, and MMA

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with mixed martial arts fighter and former wrestler Kenny "Deuce" Garner, who will fight in the heavyweight finals of the M-1 Global Americas Selection tournament Saturday, September 18, 2010, at Bally's Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. His opponent will be Pat Bennett, who had been a two-time Div. 3 All-American wrestler at SUNY-Brockport. We spoke with the colorful Kenny Garner by phone to get his view on how this fight, which is expected to feature a lot of action, will go.

We open the show by discussing some of the lessons from the recently-concluded World Championships of Wrestling, which took place September 6-12 in Moscow. This was one of the most exciting world championships in recent memory, and also saw the wrestlers using some amazing techniques, but this event got little attention outside the wrestling community. We explain some of the reasons why, and offer some suggestions.

In addition, we squarely address the myth that wrestling is a "boring" sport. While some wrestlers may wrestle a boring style, the philosophy behind the sport emphasizes seeking dominance. We comment on this issue both regarding wrestling as a sport, and wrestling and wrestlers in mixed martial arts, borrowing some advice from wrestling legend Dan Gable.

No Holds Barred: The Bad News Never Ends in Boxing

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the latest round of scandals, corruption, tragedies, and absurdities in the sport of boxing.

We examine the rapid decomposition of what had been the best thing in boxing, the Showtime Super Six World Boxing Classic super middleweight tournament, where all three fights in stage three of that tournament, and the tournament itself, appear to be in jeopardy. We discuss the crises facing boxers after they leave the limelight, including Joe Calzaghe, Ricky Hatton, and Mike Tyson, none of whom boxing has found a place for after their best days in the ring were gone, and even for current top boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., the latest darling of the scandal and gossip mongers.

And we analyze what may turn out to be the biggest threats both to the athletes and the sports themselves for the contact and combat sports: the brain damage caused by concussions in these sports, and the onset of the brain disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

We also preview the junior middleweight fight between 39-year-old Shane Mosley and 29-year-old Sergio Mora, which takes place Saturday, September 18, in Los Angeles, and which will be telecast live in the U.S. on HBO pay-per-view. We hear comments from both Mosley and Mora from a recent media conference call, to which all concerned about the combat sports should listen.

No Holds Barred: Hit or Miss? Shark Fights 13 Review with Steve Nelson 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman reviews the Shark Fights 13 mixed martial arts card with Steve Nelson, the founder of the USWF (Unified Shoot Wrestling Federation), who covered this show for No Holds Barred from cageside. Shark Fights 13 was held Saturday, September 11, at the Amarillo Civic Center Coliseum in Amarillo, Texas, and telecast live on pay-per-view.

We had a lengthy and detailed discussion Sunday afternoon about this overwhelmingly well-received show. We analyzed the fights on this card, including the late stoppage in the exciting Houston Alexander-Sokoudjou fight, and the many upsets. We discussed the telecast, including the colorful and controversial commentary by Don Frye and Bas Rutten. And we examined what this all may mean, both positive and negative, for the future and positioning of Shark Fights. This is an in-depth analysis of this event, which its promoters hope will establish Shark Fights as a major MMA organization.
