No Holds Barred: Tyron Woodley 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with unbeaten Strikeforce mixed martial arts fighter Tyron Woodley.

He will be headlining the Strikeforce Challengers mixed martial arts card on Friday, January 7, from the Nashville Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. This card will be shown live on Showtime in the U.S., during their free preview weekend.

In the main event, Tyron Woodley (7-0) will fight Tarec Saffiedine (10-2) in a welterweight (170 pounds) fight.

We spoke Monday evening by phone with Tyron Woodley about what to expect in this fight. Although he was a two-time NCAA Div. I All-American wrestler and Big 12 champion at Missouri, he told us he is coming to fight. We discussed his training in striking and how he has adapted as a mixed martial arts fighter. And he explained where he believes he is in the quest for a Strikeforce welterweight title shot, and how he thinks he would do in fights with top welterweights in that organization.

As a former wrestler, he also discussed the role of wrestling in mixed martial arts and the problems in wrestling which are seeing so many wrestlers leaving that sport to enter mixed martial arts. We also discussed why, in the opinion of so many elite wrestlers who have fought at the top level of mixed martial arts, wrestling is actually a tougher sport than mixed martial arts for the athletes.

No Holds Barred: Old Thoughts for a New Year 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the issues of why combat sports are needed, what type of combat sports are acceptable, how different societies have viewed combat sports through the ages, and how all this is relevant to the fight to legalize mixed martial arts in New York, and to preserve it in Japan where it has been severely declining.

Examined are some of the lessons from the Dynamite mixed martial arts and kickboxing card on December 31, 2010, at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, as well as combat sports in ancient Greece and Africa. Discussed is the critical issue of the values combat sports should embrace, as raised in the 2004 essay "The Nature of the Game: The Olympic Legacy" by Dr. Michael B. Poliakoff. We also discuss why we should support fighting sports, the views of George Will and George Orwell on combat sports, what might be the ideal form of combat sports, and much more.
