No Holds Barred: Dr. Margaret Goodman on the Testosterone Replacement Therapy Controversy in Combat Sports 


On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Dr. Margaret Goodman, a neurologist, the former chair of the Medical Advisory Board of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and the medical correspondent for No Holds Barred.
Once again, with the firing of now-former UFC fighter Nate Marquardt, the issue of the use of testosterone replacement therapy by elite fighters has come to the fore. After admittedly taking testosterone injections, Marquardt's levels were too high for him to be allowed to fight by the Pennsylvania commission on last week's UFC televised card. He was subsequently fired by UFC.
We thus spoke Friday by phone with Dr. Goodman, one of the strongest opponents of doping in sports, about what we know about this case and what more can be done to fight the rampant doping in combat sports like boxing and MMA. She called for the establishment of an outside agency to fight doping and conduct drug testing for these sports, beyond the often woeful efforts of the various state athletic commissions. She also called for athletes in these sports to step up and demand more effective anti-doping measures, as Floyd Mayweather Jr. has done. We also discussed the reported return to boxing of former middleweight champion Jermain Taylor following a series of brutal knockouts, the need for fans to speak up and contact the athletic commissions on these issues, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Floyd Mayweather, Richard Schaefer, Keisha Morrisey 


(Photo by Keisha Morrisey)
On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses some of the latest downs and ups in the world of boxing, and reports from the Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz news conference in New York, which took place Tuesday, June 28.
After a 16-month hiatus from the ring, the unbeaten Mayweather will return on September 17 against the WBC welterweight champion Ortiz in a fight in Las Vegas and on HBO Pay-Per-View. Both fighters have also agreed to undergo Olympic-style drug-testing administered by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), including random, unannounced blood and urine testing.
We spoke with Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, about the issue of drug-testing and the importance of this fight. We also got some comments from Floyd Mayweather on drug-testing, which may surprise some people, as well as on this fight.
After the news conference, we sat down with our correspondent and colleague Keisha Morrisey, who also covered the news conference, to discuss the Mayweather-Ortiz fight, the problems in the marketing of boxing, the latest hometown decisions in boxing, and more.

No Holds Barred: Stephen Koepfer on Sambo, Physical Culture, and Battle to Legalize MMA in New York 


On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Stephen Koepfer, the head coach at New York Combat Sambo and the co-founder of the Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York.
Having recently returned from the Spartak Olympic Training Center in Ukraine, we spoke with him about why sambo continues to be such an important discipline and combat sport in Eastern Europe. Training in sambo is also seen as a way of promoting health and physical culture among the population.
We also gave a post-mortem on the attempts this year to get the New York legislature to re-legalize mixed martial arts. After once again being passed in the Senate, the bill was bottled up in committee in the Assembly and never reached the floor for a vote. We thus discuss why we must continue our efforts, the strengths and weaknesses of the battle for MMA in New York, why MMA fighters should be provided the same legal protections as boxers have under the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act, and much more.
