No Holds Barred: Jay Hieron of Bellator Fighting Championships 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with one of the top welterweight mixed martial arts fighters in the world, Jay Hieron.
Fighting out of Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, Jay Hieron has recently signed with the Bellator Fighting Championships and will make his debut with them this Saturday, March 5, at Bellator 35 from the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, California. He will face Anthony Lapsley in a quarterfinal fight in the Bellator season 4 welterweight tournament. This card will be televised live in the U.S. on MTV2 beginning at 9pm ET/PT (tape-delayed on West Coast), with a Spanish-language telecast airing on MTV Tr3s on Sunday, March 6, at 8pm ET/PT.
Although several of the promotions in which he has fought have had difficulties, Jay Hieron remains one of the most talented fighters in mixed martial arts. He was the reigning IFL welterweight champion when that promotion folded, and has an overall record of 19-4. He has won his last seven fights and not lost a fight since 2007. He went 2-0 in Strikeforce before parting ways with them, and now hopes to win the Bellator welterweight tournament, thus guaranteeing him a title shot, free of politics and the rest.
We spoke with Jay Hieron by phone Tuesday night about his upcoming fight, some of the lessons of his career in both wrestling and MMA, and his plans. Despite a layoff of over a year, he still considers himself a top ten fighter, and aims to prove it on March 5.
The Bellator welterweight tournament in packed with talent. The other quarterfinal fights on this card, which will also be televised, are Rick Hawn vs. Jim Wallhead, Chris Lozano vs. Lyman Good, and Brent Weedman vs. Dan Hornbuckle.
The return to action of Jay Hieron takes place on a very busy weekend for the combat sports, but make sure not to miss his fight and the intriguing Bellator welterweight tournament.

No Holds Barred: Coach Kevin Jackson Previews 2011 NCAA Div. I and Big 12 Wrestling Championships 


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 completing his second season as head wrestling coach for the legendary Iowa State Cyclones.
With their two national champions from last season having graduated and some other problems facing the team, the 2010-11 regular season has been somewhat of a disappointment for Iowa State. Nonetheless, as the postseason tournaments are about to start, they are ranked in team polls as high as number 11, and known as a team that historically peaks this time of year.
We thus spoke with Coach Jackson about the prospects for Iowa State at the 2011 Big 12 Wrestling Championships and the 2011 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships.
The 2011 Big 12 Wrestling Championships take place Saturday, March 5, at Hilton Coliseum of the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. This event will be streamed live on Big12Sports.com, with the finals also being streamed on the FSN web site. For more information, go to http://www.big12sports.com.
The 2011 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships will take place from Thursday, March 17, through Saturday, March 19, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. ESPN in the U.S. will televise the finals live, and the ESPN networks and web sites will provide coverage of all six sessions of this tournament. For more information, go to http://www.ncaa.com/championships/wrestling/d1.
Iowa State has the number one ranked wrestler at 174 pounds, senior Jon Reader, who is undefeated this season. We discussed his chances for winning a national title in his final college season, as well as some of the other Iowa State wrestlers Coach Jackson expects to be in contention for Big 12 and national titles. We also discussed the situation involving 14-year-old female high school wrestler Cassy Herkelman, who had a male opponent in Iowa's recent high school state tournament forfeit to her rather than wrestling a girl.

No Holds Barred: IOC President Jacques Rogge News Conference on Illegal Sport Betting 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents the audio from the news conference held Tuesday, March 1, 2011, by Jacques Rogge, the president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), announcing the formation of a task force to address the issue of how "to fight irregular and illegal sport betting". This news conference was held at the headquarters of the IOC in Lausanne, Switzerland.
We also comment on some of the problems with the plans for such a task force, including seeing the regulated gambling industry as an ally in the battle against corruption in sports, and how this would be a step backwards for many major professional sports. And we discuss how various forms of corruption have hurt the combat sports over the years, and the continuing need for the establishment of an independent world sports anti-corruption agency.

No Holds Barred: World Sport Anti-Corruption Agency, Feijao-Henderson, M-1 XXIII, Weekend Preview 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews an incredible week coming up in the combat sports, as well as a conference which may mark a major step in the battle against corruption in world sports.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will be holding a Working Meeting on irregular and illegal sports betting on Tuesday, March 1, at the IOC Headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. This coincides with a number of major calls for the formation of some type of independent world agency to combat corruption in sports and fight for their integrity. Such statements have already been publicly issued by Tamas Ajan of Hungary, who is an honorary member of the IOC and president of International Weightlifting Federation, and David Howman, the director general of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Many IOC officials are believed to be unenthusiastic about the formation of such a body, and we will be following the developments at this meeting and afterwards, including the activities of Play the Game, which has long supported the establishment of such an anti-corruption agency.
In mixed martial arts, the main attraction this coming weekend will be the first title defense by Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante against MMA veteran and legend Dan Henderson. That headlines a card on Saturday, March 5, at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, which will be shown live in the U.S. on Showtime. We spoke with both Feijao and Dan Henderson about what to expect in this fight on a media conference call, and also preview the women's 135-pound title fight between champion Marloes Coenen and challenger Liz Carmouche.
Also on Saturday, March 5, M-1 Challenge XXIII features two title fights and a loaded card from the Crocus City Arena in Moscow, Russia. This card will be webcast live and for free on the M-1 Global web site starting at 11:00 am EST / 8:00am PST in North America. In a heavyweight title fight, Guram Gugenishvili, the M-1 Challenge champion, fights Maxim Grishin, the M-1 Selection Eastern Europe 2010 champion. In a welterweight title fight, Shamil Zavurov, the M-1 Challenge C\champion, faces Tom Gallicchio, the M-1 Selection Americas 2010 champion.
We also discuss the west coast trials for the World Professional Jiu Jitsu Cup, which take place March 5 and 6 in San Diego, California; the Saul "Canelo" Alvarez-Matthew Hatton WBC 154-pound title fight on March 5 from Anaheim, California, which will shown in the U.S. on HBO; and the NCAA Division I wrestling conference championships, which also take place this coming weekend.
