No Holds Barred: Chatri Sityodtong on the Two Superpowers of MMA 





(Photos of Chatri Sityodtong and Eddie Goldman by Lee Li)

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Chatri Sityodtong, the founder and chairman of the top martial arts organization in Asia, the Singapore-based Evolve MMA.

Chatri electrified the historic ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012 in Singapore with his presentation on June 2 in which he declared that in five to ten years, Asian MMA would surpass MMA in the U.S. and be "the center of the world."

We spoke with Chatri on June 3 between sessions on the final day of the Summit.

We discussed why he believes that there will be two superpowers in the world in MMA (ONE FC and UFC), why ONE FC will surpass everyone else in the world in popularity, where Asian MMA fighters currently rank on a worldwide basis, the development of amateur MMA in Asia, and more.

We also open with the sad news of the passing of Grand Master Roger Clark, who touched so many lives in the New York area by bringing martial arts to the youth.

In addition, we discuss the announcement that News Corporation was buying the 50 percent stake in Asia's ESPN STAR Sports which they did not already own, from The Walt Disney Company, the parent company of ESPN. We read a statement from Victor Cui, the CEO of ONE FC, which has a ten-year deal with ESPN STAR Sports, calling this "fantastic news."

And we encourage people to continue educating themselves on the issue of the dangers of performance-enhancing drugs in sports, and read a number of recent articles on this subject on MaxBoxing.com and FightOpinion.com, and in Sports Illustrated.

No Holds Barred: Matt Hume on the Governance of Pro and Amateur MMA 





On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with mixed martial arts legend and the current head official for the ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC), Matt Hume.

Matt was one of the featured speakers at the historic ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012, held June 1-3 in Singapore. His presentations included topics such as how to build fighters properly, the need for good governance of both professional and amateur MMA, how ONE FC has blended the best rules from Pride and the North American unified rules, the need for strong anti-doping measures in MMA, and why MMA is presently not organized like a sport.

We spoke with Matt Hume right after the conclusion of the ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012 on Sunday, June 3, in Singapore. We further discussed the issues he had raised in his presentations, making for an essential discussion about many of the key issues facing mixed martial arts globally.

No Holds Barred: Victor Cui of ONE FC Sums Up the ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012 





On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Victor Cui, the CEO of the ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC), about the ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012. This unprecedented and historic event, held June 1-3 in Singapore, brought together over 150 leaders from numerous countries to discuss the future of MMA in Asia. We spoke with Victor Cui on June 3 at the conclusion of the ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012.

"It doesn't matter what the industry is, the world is looking at Asia," he said during this interview. "In the world of sports, with Asia the home of martial arts, why wouldn't the world come and look back at Asia again and see where this growth of MMA is going?"

We discussed the analysis that in the next decade, MMA in Asia will surpass MMA in the U.S. We discussed the plans for ONE FC, and much, much more.
