No Holds Barred: Gina Carano 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with former mixed martial arts and muay Thai fighter Gina Carano, who is the star of the new spy film "Haywire".
In this film, directed by Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh, she plays Mallory Kane, a covert operative who is betrayed by her cohorts.
We spoke with Gina Carano by phone Wednesday afternoon about her widely-acclaimed starring role, her first, in this movie. She discussed her training in weapons and fighting for this movie, in which she performed almost all of her own stunts. She commented on her character, which was not the stereotypical, one-dimensional role usually given to fighters, and her transition from fighting to acting. She also discussed the battle to legalize mixed martial arts in New York; her reaction to her last opponent in MMA, Cris "Cyborg" Santos, who defeated her in August 2009, testing positive for steroids after her December 17, 2011, Strikeforce fight; her explanation about a report that her voice was altered in this new film; and more.
"Haywire" opens in theaters in the U.S. on January 20.

No Holds Barred: Corruption 2012

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the numerous cases of corruption and bad governance in the combat sports which have already cropped up in this brand new year.
Among the topics discussed are the statement by heavyweight boxer Dereck Chisora that boxing is "the most dodgy and corrupt sport in the world"; what we know about Mustafa Ameen, the so-called "mystery man" who was ringside at the controversial Lamont Peterson-Amir Khan fight; the positive doping test for Strikeforce fighter Cris "Cyborg" Santos, her excuses, and how this all once again illustrates the inadequate drug testing in the combat sports; the important steps taken by the International Olympic Committee and the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association in the battle against dope cheats; the late stoppage in the one-sided Strikeforce fight on Saturday, January 7, where "King" Mo Lawal scored a second-round TKO over Lorenz Larkin; new developments in the fight against corruption in FIFA; and much more.
