No Holds Barred: Jessica Aguilar on Her Controversial Loss to Zoila Frausto, and Her Next Fight 


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

At Bellator 31 on September 30 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Jessica Aguilar fought Zoila Frausto in the semifinals of the Bellator 115-pound women's tournament. The result was a highly-controversial split decision win for Frausto, a verdict not supported by most of those who were in attendance or watching on television. Many simply said that Jessica Aguilar was "robbed". But with the win, Zoila Frausto got a berth in the tournament finals on October 28, where she will face the unbeaten Megumi Fujii.

We spoke Saturday afternoon with Jessica Aguilar about this fight and this disputed decision. She explained her strategy of mainly keeping the fight standing, although she is a world-class grappler and American Top Team member. We discussed what she might have done differently in this fight. She also revealed that she will be fighting on that October 28 Bellator card in Hollywood, Florida, against an opponent to be named. But if Zoila Frausto is unable to fight in the tournament finals because of the injuries she suffered in the September 30 fight, Jessica Aguilar might replace her in the finals against Megumi Fujii.

No Holds Barred: Dr. Margaret Goodman on Concussions, Combat Sports, CTE, Doping, and Horses 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with Dr. Margaret Goodman, a neurologist, the former chair of the Medical Advisory Board of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and the medical correspondent for No Holds Barred.

Our lengthy interview takes on some of the most difficult but pressing issues facing the combat sports, and even contact sports like American football.

What can be done to limit further the widespread doping in combat sports and the use of dangerous and banned substances? Why are these banned substances, such as anabolic steroids, so dangerous?

What will be the effect on these sports of very recent research, which Dr. Goodman calls "earth-shattering", regarding the dangers caused by concussions and the onset of the brain disease CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy? Can any combat or contact sport be considered relatively safe, or become relatively safe, for the health of the athletes? Given all this new research, how can it be argued that combat sports, including mixed martial arts, be legalized in jurisdictions like New York where it presently is not? And why are safety and doping standards better in the U.S. for race horses than human athletes?

We address head-on these and related issues which one day may threaten the very existence of these sports.

No Holds Barred: Lenne Hardt 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with the legendary former Pride Fighting Championships and current Dream announcer Lenne Hardt.

Lenne Hardt, although an American, has been living and working in Tokyo for many years. We spoke with her by Skype on Tuesday morning Japan time/Monday evening U.S. time.

In an amazing, lengthy interview, the multi-talented Lenne Hardt explained how she first got involved as a mixed martial arts announcer, although she had not been familiar with the sport prior to being hired by Pride. She discussed her unique, explosive announcing style, about which few who have heard it have no opinion. She recalled how it was to work at the mega-events produced by Pride, and also her reactions during the period of the demise of Pride and the scandals associated with that organization. She commented on the future of Dream. As head of the Lenne Hardt Jazz Band, which recently celebrated its tenth anniversary, she discussed the relationship between her announcing and jazz. She also discussed her upcoming announcing date for the Israel Fighting Championship on November 9 in Tel Aviv, and much, much more.

No Holds Barred: Jessica Aguilar 


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

After submitting Lynn Alvarez in the first round of their fight in the quarterfinals of the eight-woman, 115-pound tournament promoted by the Bellator Fighting Championships, Jessica Aguilar has advanced to the semifinals. Her opponent in the semis will be Zoila Frausto, in a fight which will take place at Bellator 31 on Thursday, September 30, at the L'Auberge du Lac Resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and will be televised live in the U.S. on Fox Sports Net.

We spoke with Jessica Aguilar, an American Top Team fighter, on Saturday about what to expect in her fight with Zoila Frausto. We discussed her grappling background, and how she is planning to use it in this fight. She explained the influence she is having on young women and girls who might want to enter the martial arts and combat sports, and how they should believe in themselves. We also discussed her relations with her mother, whom she adores, but who does not yet know that she is a professional fighter.
