No Holds Barred: John Perretti on Injuries, Violence, and the Need for Change in Combat Sports 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with former world kickboxing champion, former UFC and Extreme Fighting matchmaker, and our senior correspondent, John Perretti.

We continue our series of discussions on the critical issue of the increasing number of grave and major injuries in the combat and contact sports. As athletes get bigger, stronger, and faster than ever, and as they learn to use the rules of their sports to their advantage better, sports like American football, boxing, and mixed martial arts are becoming more dangerous and violent.

We thus examine what has been going on in these sports, what the consequences of their current direction will be, what changes they have or have not been making to protect their athletes, and what changes they should be making. We also discuss how the opponents of mixed martial arts are becoming more sophisticated (or, rather, less ignorant) in their opposition to legalizing the sport.

No Holds Barred: Coach Kevin Jackson Previews 2010-11 Iowa State Wrestling 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Kevin Jackson, the Olympic gold medalist and two-time world champion freestyle wrestler, who is starting his second season as head wrestling coach for the legendary Iowa State Cyclones.

The 2010-2011 college wrestling season for the Cyclones officially starts this Saturday, November 6, with dual meets against Virginia Tech and Kent State in Salem, Virginia. On Sunday, November 7, the Hokie Open takes place, also in Salem, Virginia. The highly-anticipated annual showdown between Iowa State and the defending NCAA Div. I national champions, the Iowa Hawkeyes, takes place Friday, December 3, at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa.

We spoke at length with Coach Jackson about what to expect this season, especially with the graduation of their two 2009-2010 national champions, Jake Varner and David Zabriskie. He explained the status of Andrew Long, who was a 2009-2010 runner-up as a freshman at 125 pounds, and who is not on the Cyclone roster at this time. We discussed who are expected to be the leaders on the Cyclone team this year, and which wrestlers are the likely starters, including two-time All-American Jon Reader. He also stated that witnessing live an Iowa State-Iowa wrestling dual meet is one of the greatest experiences a sports fan could ever have, and much more.

We spoke Sunday evening with Emilio Novoa about the ADCC North American Championships and the goals of the ADCC North American Federation. We had a wide-ranging discussion on topics including why the various styles of grappling are the best combat sports, what they must do to fulfill their potential to become major spectator sports, and how grappling tournaments should be run. We also encouraged everyone to support the ADCC events, whether they be competitors, coaches, fans, or media, and much more.
