No Holds Barred: Stephen Koepfer on Legalizing MMA in New York, and Sambo and MMA 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Stephen Koepfer, the co-founder of the Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York, and the head coach at New York Combat Sambo.
We spoke on Friday afternoon, beginning by noting the growing public support for the legalization of mixed martial arts in New York. We discussed some of what has been done and still needs to be done to win this battle in the New York State legislature.
The sport of sambo is growing in stature internationally, and we discussed some of the recent successes by American athletes in international sambo competition. We also noted how more people are realizing the effectiveness of sambo as one of the many disciplines which are essential for mixed martial arts, and how many athletes with success in both sport and combat sambo are now achieving success in mixed martial arts as well.

April 1 No Holds Barred: Eddie Goldman Retires from Radio to Become Country Music Superstar 


On this special April 1 edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman explains why he is retiring from radio and now becoming a country music superstar.
After fooling around for a bit on this April Fools' Day, we return to reality by previewing some of the best and real combat sports action taking place this weekend.
The start of the 2011 European M-1 Selection tournament takes place Friday, April 1, in Makhachkala, the capital of the Republic of Dagestan in Russia. It will be streamed for free and live on the M-1 Global web site and the M-1 Global Facebook fan page starting at 10:00 AM EDT / 7:00 AM PDT on Friday, April 1.
We also again preview the FightTime 4 main event which pits Jeff Monson against Tony Lopez for the ISKA heavyweight title, at the War Memorial Auditorium in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. This card will be shown live as an Internet pay-per-view on GoFightLive.
On Saturday, April 2, among the many boxing cards taking place around the world will be the highly-anticipated rematch between WBO light flyweight champion Giovani Segura and the man from whom he won that title, the previously-unbeaten Ivan Calderon. The rematch takes place at the Auditorio del Estado in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. This fight will be shown live in the U.S. on pay-per-view.
We also discuss the defense of his European lightweight title by unbeaten John Murray against Spanish champion Karim El Ouazghari in London in the U.K. This fight will be shown in the U.K. on Sky Sports.
The Bellator Fighting Championships will have one of their strongest cards of the year this Saturday, April 2, at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Headlining Bellator 39 will be their lightweight champion and one of the best mixed martial arts fighters in the world, Eddie Alvarez, who will defend his belt against Pat Curran, who earned the title shot by winning the Bellator lightweight tournament last year. In a welterweight tournament semifinal fight, former champion Lyman Good takes on unbeaten judo Olympian Rick Hawn. In a lightweight semifinal fight, submission artist Toby Imada takes on Patricky "Pitbull" Freire. And in a welterweight fight, Ben Saunders faces Matt Lee.
Bellator 39 will be shown live in the U.S. on MTV2.
And we comment on the Combate Extremo event also taking place Saturday, April 2, at the Arena Coliseo in Monterrey, Mexico, and more.

No Holds Barred: Jeff Monson 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with American Top Team mixed martial arts fighter and two-time ADCC world champion Jeff Monson.
His next fight is Friday, April 1, in the main event at Fight Time 4. His opponent will be former King of the Cage champion Tony Lopez in a fight to crown the first-ever ISKA heavyweight champion. This card will take place at the War Memorial Auditorium in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. It will be available on Fox Sports Net and SunSports FightZone series in Florida, and will also be shown live as an Internet pay-per-view on GoFightLive.
We spoke with Jeff Monson by phone Tuesday afternoon about this fight and a number of important issues in mixed martial arts. He discussed his very active schedule of fights, even as he is now 40 years old. He is a world-class grappler, and we analyzed his continuing improvement as a striker through his training at American Top Team.
We also discussed the absence of health insurance in a sport where the aim is to hurt your opponent, a situation he called "unfathomable". And we examined the need for some type of union or association of fighters, something Jeff believes is "doable" if a proper structure is created and fighters fight in their own interests and stick together.
