On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the 2012 season opener for the Professional Bull Riders at Madison Square Garden in New York, January 6-8, as well as the Strikeforce MMA card in Las Vegas on January 7. Also discussed are the drama outside the ring in boxing involving Floyd Mayweather (whose jail sentence from a domestic violence case was just postponed until June) and Victor Ortiz. And previewed is the showdown Saturday night, January 7, between the number one college wrestling team in the U.S., the University of Iowa Hawkeyes, and the number two college wrestling team, the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
Also noted are the similarities between bull riding and MMA, including the success in both sports of athletes from Brazil; how bull riding is legal in New York but not MMA; how New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to legalize casino gambling which requires a state constitutional amendment, but has said nothing about legalizing MMA; and more.
