No Holds Barred: Rudy Gonzalez, The Inner Ring, and the Sacrifices of Mike Tyson 



On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Rudy Gonzalez, the former personal bodyguard, chauffeur, and confidant of Mike Tyson. Rudy is the author of the explosive book about Mike Tyson, The Inner Ring. He is also working on making a film based on this book.

We spoke with Rudy on Thursday when he was in New York. We discussed many of the incidents and tragedies in the life of Mike Tyson both in and out of the ring, with Rudy providing many behind-the-scenes stories and offering his theories as well. We spoke about Tyson's disputed rape conviction and imprisonment, how his boxing career nosedived shortly after the death of trainer Cus D'Amato, his relations with and subsequent lawsuit against promoter Don King, the place of Tyson in boxing history and how great he may have become, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Art Davie and the Return of XARM 



On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with one of the founders of the UFC, Art Davie.

He is back with a new organization, XARM, featuring a new combat sport which combines arm wrestling and mixed martial arts. XARM originally started in 2008, but for various reasons, as he explained in our interview, it discontinued running events. Now with a mobile game set to debut October 17 and a slate of live events planned to start January 2012, XARM is back.

We spoke with Art Davie Tuesday night by phone about what XARM is and why fight and sports fans should give this new sport, which is itself evolving as did MMA, a chance. He discussed the rules and format, how XARM is already preparing to approach the various athletic commissions for sanctioning, the prospects of a TV deal, how this sport is being tailored for digital and mobile devices, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Kid Peligro on Why ADCC 2011 Was The Best Ever 



On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with our colleague and correspondent Kid Peligro.

After covering the 2011 ADCC World Submission Fighting Championships, held September 24-25 in Nottingham, England, Kid has declared that this was the best ADCC event ever. Started in 1998, the ADCC World Submission Fighting Championships is the most important and prestigious grappling event in the world.

We spoke with Kid Peligro by phone Saturday about this event. He discussed why he was so positive about it, how the matches both were exciting and showcased an array of submission techniques, the significance of the successful use of many leglock and footlock submissions in this event, the incredible performances by Absolute champion Andre Galvao and many others, how this event helped fulfill the mission of ADCC, the relation between MMA and grappling, the predominance of lowest common denominator techniques in MMA today, what grappling can do to increase its popularity, where ADCC 2013 might be held, and much more.

No Holds Barred: ADCC and M-1 Global World Champion Vinny Magalhaes 



On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with 2011 ADCC 99+ kg world champion and M-1 Global light heavyweight champion Vinny Magalhaes.

So far, 2011 has been an incredible year for Vinny Magalhaes. Fighting out of Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, on April 28, 2011, he captured the vacant M-1 Global light heavyweight title by submitting Viktor Nemkov with a mounted gogoplata which has been nicknamed a "Vinnyplata". Next, he was victorious in the two-day ADCC 2011 World Submission Fighting Championship in the 99+ kg division, defeating defending champion Fabricio Werdum in the finals on September 25.

On October 14, he will be defending his M-1 light heavyweight crown against Mikhail Zayats, a 2008 world combat sambo champion, who has won his last four MMA fights, three by submission and one by TKO. That fight will be the co-main event on the live M-1 Global telecast on Showtime in the U.S., which will be held at the Grand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix, Arizona.

We spoke with Vinny Magalhaes by phone Saturday about winning these world titles in mixed martial arts and grappling during the same year. He explained how he has changed his mentality as a mixed martial arts fighter after starting off with a losing record, to win his last four fights and six out of his last seven, to up his record to 8-5. We discussed how he can compete on a world level in both these sports at the same time. He explained why in mixed martial arts, even though he is training in all techniques, his ground game is still his main weapon. We discussed his training with M-1 heavyweight champion Guram Gugenishvili, who will defend his title against Kenny Garner on that same October 14 card, and much more.
