No Holds Barred: Pat Miletich 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with mixed martial arts legend Pat Miletich.

The first fighter to hold the UFC 170-pound title and the creator of one of the most influential schools of fighting, Pat Miletich, though not officially retired as a fighter, can now be seen as an announcer for Strikeforce on their telecasts on Showtime.

We spoke with him by phone on Tuesday night about a number of hot topics in mixed martial arts. We discussed the importance of the upcoming Strikeforce World Grand Prix Heavyweight Tournament, the ongoing battle to legalize mixed martial arts in New York, some of the highlights of his legendary fighting career, and the influence of his style on all of mixed martial arts, where he emphasized fighters developing a well-rounded set of techniques. He elaborated on the comments he had made on the January 7 Strikeforce Challengers telecast, including his praise of the athletic abilities of rising star Tyron Woodley. We also discussed announcing and his good relationship with his fellow Strikeforce announcers, the negativity that pervades much of what calls itself the mixed martial arts media, a little bit about wrestling (especially since Pat is from Iowa), and much more.

No Holds Barred: Scott Coker on the Strikeforce World Grand Prix Heavyweight Tournament

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker about the Strikeforce World Grand Prix Heavyweight Tournament.

We spoke in New York on Monday about this historic tournament, which includes many of the top mixed martial arts heavyweights in the world. We discussed the structure of the tournament, the negotiations between Strikeforce and M-1 Global to re-sign Fedor Emelianenko and have him fight in this tournament, why getting Fedor was "well worth the wait," the licensing situation involving Josh Barnett who is also in this tournament, and more.

In addition, we discussed the efforts to re-legalize mixed martial arts in New York, and the February 8 rally called by the Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York. "We'll definitely have a voice there," said Scott Coker.

We also read a comment from Nick Lembo of the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board about the issue of the length of rounds in this tournament. Many people would like all fights in it, regardless of whether they are for the Strikeforce heavyweight title or not, to be scheduled for five rounds. The tournament starts on February 12 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and will be shown live in the U.S. on Showtime.

On Friday, January 7, at the Strikeforce Challengers mixed martial arts card in Nashville, Tennessee, and shown live in the U.S. on Showtime, he notched his seventh consecutive victory with a dominating unanimous decision over Devin Cole.

We spoke with Daniel Cormier by phone on Sunday about his latest victory and his plans in mixed martial arts. We discussed the technique he used in this fight, including his improved striking. Topics included how he has advanced as a fighter since his pro debut in September 2009, the possibility of him competing as an alternate in the upcoming Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, whether or not he will stay at heavyweight, his training at American Kickboxing Academy with fighters such as former wrestler and current UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, the difficulties of trying to compete in wrestling and mixed martial arts at the same time, the greatness of the NCAA Div. I Wrestling Championships, and much more.
