No Holds Barred: Matt Hume on ONE FC 



On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with the veteran MMA and combat sports trainer, official, and former fighter, Matt Hume.
He has just been selected to be the head official and referee for the new mixed martial arts promotion, the ONE Fighting Championship.
ONE FC has its debut show on Saturday, September 3, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. This card will feature 16 fighters who are present or former world or national champions in various disciplines in the martial arts and combat sports, facing one another.
We spoke by phone with Matt Hume on Wednesday to learn about the rules, structure, and organization of ONE FC. The rules will be a unique blend of the North American unified rules and the rules used in Pride FC, where Matt was also an official. We discussed the challenges of running mixed martial arts events in areas where, unlike North America, there is little or no government regulation. ONE FC is aiming to become the largest MMA promotion in Asia, and we discussed its potential to become as popular as Pride was in its heyday. We also discussed his work and role as owner of both Genesis Fights in Seattle, Washington, and AMC Kickboxing and Pankration in Kirkland, Washington, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Bloodstain Lane, Stephen Koepfer, Chris Thomas, Ivy Supersonic on New Film, Warrior 


On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman continues getting reaction from the combat sports world to the new, ground-breaking, mixed martial arts-themed dramatic film, "Warrior".
At a New York preview of the film last Thursday, we spoke with the popular combat sports vlogger Bloodstain Lane, Stephen Koepfer of New York Combat Sambo and the American Sambo Association, veteran MMA and combat sports journalist Chris Thomas, and New York designer and combat sports buff Ivy Supersonic. As with the first set of interviews we did after a preview of this film in April, all were very positive about it.
"Warrior", which will be released on September 9, is a riveting drama focusing on the quest of two estranged brothers to win a Grand Prix MMA tournament. It stars Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton, and Nick Nolte. In its previews, it has deservedly received enthusiastic praise, both from general movie observers and those in the MMA community alike. Many are already predicting that the film and those involved with it will receive numerous awards.
"Warrior" is a must-see film and the first major work of art about a sport often associated with blood and vulgarity, sometimes deservedly so, and sometimes not.

No Holds Barred: MMA and Mainstream Sports 


On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses whether the march of mixed martial arts into the world of mainstream sports is a good thing or not. We examine some of the recent instances of corruption, scandal, and tragedy in the mainstream sports. We criticize the recent statement by David Hill, chairman of the Fox Sports Media Group, which just signed a deal to televise UFC events, that MMA fighters are a "different breed" from boxers because "they're intelligent, they're smart, they're committed." We present a statement also criticizing Hill from Dr. Margaret Goodman, former ringside physician and head of the Medical Advisory Board of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. And we offer a yardstick for judging these sports, why combat sports should be special, and their real value to most people.
