No Holds Barred: Chris Thomas on State of Mixed Martial Arts 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with our colleague and correspondent Chris Thomas about the state of mixed martial arts.
On the top of the list of issues we discussed was the recent buyout by Zuffa, the parent company of UFC, of their main competitor, Strikeforce. We examined the issue of whether or not this might violate antitrust legislation in the U.S. We discussed the possible precedent set by the 1955 U.S. Supreme Court case, United States v. International Boxing Club of New York (IBC), in which the court said that the U.S. government could take the IBC to trial for having an effective monopoly on boxing, despite the antitrust exemption that the U.S. Congress had granted to baseball. The U.S. government prevailed, and later won its case against the IBC.
We also examined other issues relating to the state of MMA, including who benefits and who does not with this buyout, what other or aspiring major promoters might do to succeed under the present conditions, and more.

No Holds Barred: Anthony Robles, Bubba Jenkins, Jon Reader, Jordan Burroughs, Kevin Jackson, Cael Sanderson 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents interviews and commentary from the spectacular 2011 NCAA Div. I Wrestling Championships, held March 17-19 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
We have comments from the Outstanding Wrestler of this tournament, Anthony Robles, the 125-pound champion from Arizona State, who finished this season undefeated. Born without a right leg, his rise to the top in college wrestling is one of the most moving and important sports stories in the world. He said he now will focus on motivational speaking. We also have comments from Bubba Jenkins, the 157-pound champion, also from Arizona State, who won his finals match with a stunning pin of previously-unbeaten David Taylor, the freshman phenom from Penn State. Bubba Jenkins said that he now plans to fight professionally in mixed martial arts. We have comments from two of the wrestlers who also finished this season undefeated, 165-pound champion Jordan Burroughs of Nebraska and 174-pound champion Jon Reader of Iowa State. Both of these wrestlers plan to continue wrestling and will try to make the U.S. Olympic Team in freestyle wrestling. And we have comments from two coaches who were themselves Olympic gold medalists in freestyle wrestling, Kevin Jackson of Iowa State and Cael Sanderson of Penn State, which won the team title.
