No Holds Barred: George Hero and MidwoodMania II 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with the legendary coach and founder of the Midwood High School wrestling team in Brooklyn, New York, George Hero.
The 53-year-old Coach Hero will once again take to the mat in this event, which is aimed at promoting and popularizing the sport of wrestling and the Midwood High School wrestling team. At MidwoodMania II, Coach Hero will take on Adam Waxman in a match under NCAA rules. Adam Waxman, a 1987 graduate of Midwood, was the first captain of the Midwood wrestling team. Since 1990, he has been the owner of Fitness 1 Training in Brooklyn, so we can expect him to offer stiff competition to his mentor and former coach.
There will also be a full card of matches in folkstyle, freestyle, and Greco-Roman wrestling. This year, not only are numerous Midwood alumni returning to the mat, but also many other alumni from schools in Brooklyn will be competing as well.
MidwoodMania II takes place Saturday, April 30, beginning at 11 AM ET, at the Midwood High School Gymnasium at 2839 Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn. There is a Facebook page with more information about MidwoodMania II at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=183221558382474.
We spoke with Coach Hero on Tuesday about this event and what it means to the sport of wrestling and the combat sports in general.

No Holds Barred: Jeff Monson 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with American Top Team mixed martial arts fighter and grappling world champion Jeff Monson.
The next fight on his busy schedule will be Saturday, April 30, for the Strength & Honor Championship. This card, SHC4, will take place at the Hotel Kempinski in Geneva, Switzerland. In the main event, he will face Maro "the Mean Machine" Perak of Croatia in a heavyweight fight.
Right after that fight, he will remain in Switzerland to conduct seminars at the headquarters of FILA, the international wrestling federation as recognized by the International Olympic Committee, in Corsier-sur-Vevey. Then he will attend the Hard Fighting Championship 3 MMA card on May 6 in Martigny, Switzerland, which is being organized in collaboration with FILA, and the FILA Grand Prix tournaments in grappling, pankration, and combat grappling (amateur MMA) on May 7-8, also in Martigny.
We spoke with Jeff Monson by phone on Sunday night about this fight with Maro Perak and what to expect. He explained why it is "an honor" for him to be working with FILA on these events and sharing his combat sports knowledge with young, up-and-coming athletes. We discussed the involvement of FILA with MMA, how it will affect MMA as well as grappling and wrestling, and much more.
