No Holds Barred: Henry Cejudo, Jordan Burroughs, Zeke Jones, Jason Bryant, Kristal Hart 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman reviews the U.S.-Russia freestyle wrestling dual meet held Thursday, May 5, outdoors in the Times Square area in New York, with wrestlers Henry Cejudo and Jordan Burroughs, Coach Zeke Jones, and media members Jason Bryant and Kristal Hart. The U.S. won this dual meet, five matches to two.
After taking a hiatus of almost three years from wrestling, 2008 Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo is back competing in freestyle wrestling. In this meet, he defeated junior world bronze medalist Rasul Mashezov of Russia, 2-0, 4-3, at 55 kg/121 pounds. We spoke with him after his match about his return to wrestling and his plans for the future.
Jordan Burroughs, who won his second NCAA Div. I national championship earlier this year and dominated his opponents in an undefeated season, also gained much notoriety by winning the Hodge Trophy as the best college wrestler in the U.S. Now that he has completed his college career at Nebraska, he is focusing full-time on freestyle wrestling. At this dual meet, for the first time he faced a wrestler from Russia, Aniuar Geduev, and prevailed, 1-0, 2-1. He also is wrestling at 74 kg/163 pounds, which is actually two pounds lighter than he did in college. We spoke with Jordan Burroughs after his match to discuss his transition from folkstyle to freestyle wrestling and his plans.
In addition, we spoke right after this meet with U.S. National Freestyle Coach Zeke Jones about how the American wrestlers performed and what they need to do to improve their wrestling. And we spoke with Jason Bryant of USA Wrestling and Kristal Hart of the Kristal Hart Show on Manhattan Neighborhood Network about this meet and the entire experience of this event, which was held as part of the Beat the Streets Gala and fundraising effort.

No Holds Barred: Pacquiao-Mosley, Hieron-Hawn, CTE 




On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses why combat sports fans should watch the Jay Hieron-Rick Hawn MMA fight at Bellator 43 this Saturday, May 7, on MTV2 instead of the Manny Pacquiao-Shane Mosley boxing pay-per-view.
We also discuss the recent finding that retired NFL star Dave Duerson, who committed suicide in February at age 50, suffered from brain damage caused by the disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). We again raise the issue of the future of combat and contact sports in light of new scientific research into the frightening dangers of repeated head and brain trauma.

No Holds Barred: Oksana Kehoe on Combat Sports and Russia 


(Photo by Eddie Goldman)
On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with sports journalist Oksana Kehoe.
Born in Russia and living in America for the past decade, Oksana has covered numerous sporting events, including boxing and mixed martial arts cards, as well as those of other sports, for both Russian and American media.
The rise of Russia and the countries of the former Soviet Union in recent years in the sporting world in general and the combat sports in particular has captured the attention of many people. We met on Monday evening in midtown Manhattan to discuss this phenomenon, as well as the decline of success of so many American athletes, especially in the combat sports. She also explained why she moved to America and how she got involved in sports media. This was just one of the first of what we hope will be many discussions on this topic, including with Oksana.

No Holds Barred: Coach George Hero and the Lifestyle of Wrestling 


(Photo by Eddie Goldman)
On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Coach George Hero, the legendary coach and founder of the Midwood High School wrestling team in Brooklyn, New York, about his victory by pin at MidwoodMania II.
MidwoodMania II took place Saturday, April 30, at the Midwood High School Gymnasium in Brooklyn. In the main event, the 53-year-old Coach Hero pinned Adam Waxman, a 1987 graduate of Midwood, who was the first captain of the Midwood wrestling team, and is the owner of Fitness 1 Training in Brooklyn.
Right after his victory, we discussed with Coach Hero how he won this match and why he is continuing to wrestle. We also spoke with Adam Waxman, and we spoke with Jakub Pawlowski, a Midwood captain in 2007-08 who now wrestles for NYU, and who won his match at MidwoodMania II by decision. Why people become wrestlers for life and why wrestling is more than a sport but also a lifestyle were key themes of our discussion.
