No Holds Barred: Jake Shannon and the Revival of Catch Wrestling 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses catch wrestling, also known as catch-as-catch-can wrestling, with Jake Shannon of ScientificWrestling.com.
Catch wrestling is a style of wrestling where, to put it simply, both pins and submissions can win a match. It is a style that was immensely popular early in the twentieth century, when professional wrestling was to a degree a legitimate sport, and was on a par in popularity in America with baseball and boxing.
After virtually going underground for decades, the popularity of mixed martial arts, jiu-jitsu, and various styles of grappling have helped revive interest in catch wrestling. Today Jake Shannon, among others, both writes about this discipline and helps train people in it.
We spoke with him by phone Friday night about the movement to revive catch wrestling, its storied if often cloudy history, and what would have to take place for it to make a comeback as a popular spectator sport. This is a fascinating topic with someone who has studied it thoroughly and currently practices and teaches this discipline, and thus provides important perspective for all the combat sports.

No Holds Barred: How Much Boxing Can You Still Enjoy? 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the Fernando Montiel-Nonito Donaire bantamweight title fight coming up Saturday, February 19, as well as the March 5 Saul Alvarez-Matthew Hatton and May 7 Manny Pacquiao-Shane Mosley fights.
While a fight like Montiel-Donaire will likely provide excitement in the ring, the stench of the self-destructive politics of boxing is so pervasive that it is hard to enjoy much of anything these days in this declining business. We discuss the collapse of the boxing reform movement, and how the clock of doom is ticking for what is left of boxing.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the historic victory by Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva over Fedor Emelianenko in their opening round fight of the Strikeforce World Grand Prix Heavyweight Tournament, which took place Saturday, February 12, at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. After a dominating second round by Bigfoot, the fight was stopped by the ringside physician due to damage to the right eye of Fedor.
After the fight, we got some comments from the victor, Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva. We also have the part of the postfight news conference where Vadim Finkelchtein and Evgeni Kogan of M-1 Global along with Scott Coker of Strikeforce discuss the loss by Fedor and his future. And we have Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva speaking and answering questions at this news conference as well.
Also, we open with a no holds barred commentary on some of the key lessons of this fight and what they mean for mixed martial arts and the combat sports. We discuss the continuing importance to MMA of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the unparalleled greatness of the MMA career of Fedor Emelianenko, the effect of Bigfoot's upset of Fedor on the sport of MMA and this heavyweight tournament, important blunders that were made in organizing the event in New Jersey, and much more.
