No Holds Barred: Jordan Burroughs 



On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with 2011 freestyle wrestling world champion and 2012 Olympian Jordan Burroughs.

After completing an undefeated 2010-11 season at Nebraska and winning his second NCAA Div. I national championship, Jordan Burroughs went on to represent the U.S. at the world wrestling championships in freestyle at 74 kg/163 pounds. He won the world championship at that event, and has been undefeated since then, including winning championships at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials, the Cerro Pelado International Tournament, the Dave Schultz Memorial International Tournament, and the 2011 Pan American Games.

Wrestling in his first Olympic Games, Jordan Burroughs is favored by many to win a gold medal in London. The wrestling at the 2012 London Olympics takes place Sunday, August 5, through Sunday, August 12, at the ExCeL Centre. The competition for Jordan Burroughs's weight class, 74 kg, takes place Friday, August 10.

"It definitely gives me a lot of confidence being the favorite for the Olympic Games," he said in this interview, recorded by phone Tuesday evening, right before he left for London. He added and stressed, "However, I know I still have to go out there and perform. Predictions and projections mean nothing if you don't go out there and perform at your highest level. So for me I'm staying mentally focused right now on the task ahead, and just go out there and win."

We spoke with Jordan Burroughs about his successful transition from American folkstyle to freestyle wrestling, how his training has helped him adapt to international wrestling, his plans to continue wrestling through at least 2016, the possible effects of the Penn State scandal on that school's two-time NCAA Div. I national champion wrestling team, the growth of wrestling on the East Coast of the U.S., how he hopes to be viewed as an American hero, and more.

No Holds Barred: Stephen Kamphuis on ADCC Asia-Pacfic World Qualifying Championships 



On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Stephen Kamphuis of ADCC Philippines.

The ADCC Philippines is organizing the ADCC Asia-Pacfic World Qualifying Championships, which will be held November 3-4 at the SM Mall of Asia, Music Atrium, Manila Bay side, in Manila, the Philippines.

This event is the selection trials for the Asia-Pacific region for the 2013 ADCC World Submission Fighting Championships, the most prestigious grappling event in the world. The winners of the advanced divisions will receive free accommodation and airfare to compete at the 2013 ADCC Worlds.

We spoke with Stephen Kamphuis by Skype Sunday (Saturday night New York time) about the significance of this event.

"The impact of an event like this for this region is huge," said Stephen Kamphuis in this interview. With the Asian grappling scene already rapidly growing, he added that this "accelerates the work that people have been doing before this" and "will lift the sport in this region, the competitiveness of the players and the exposure we get for the sport. It's a fantastic thing for the region."

We also discussed his background in judo and boxing and how he started training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, why this outdoor event may be seen by one of the largest audiences ever to watch grappling in the world, why mixed martial arts needs sports like grappling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Gustavo Falciroli 




On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with mixed martial arts fighter and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu coach Gustavo Falciroli.

Originally from Brazil and now based in Melbourne, Australia, Gustavo Falciroli currently holds the CFC (Cage Fighting Championship) bantamweight title. He made his debut in ONE FC on February 11, 2012, submitting Soo Chul Kim by rear aked choke in just 1:12 of the first round.

His next fight will be at ONE FC: Pride of a Nation, which will take place Friday, August 31, at the historic Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, the Philippines. In another of ONE FC's champion vs. champion matches, his opponent will be the internationally-ranked Bibiano Fernandes, who holds the Dream bantamweight title.

We spoke with Gustavo Falciroli by Skype Sunday (Saturday New York time) about what could be his toughest MMA fight.

"I'm definitely going into that fight as the underdog. That's the natural way. He made the name for himself. You can't take that from him," said Gustavo Falciroli in this interview about his fight with Bibiano Fernandes. But he added, "And now it's my time to make my name. So I'm going to the big leagues and trying to show what I am to the world. So that's the way. Step-by-step the world's going to get to know me."

We discussed with Gustavo Falciroli what to expect in his fight with Bibiano Fernandes, his training and background in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, his move from Brazil to Australia, why he likes the rules of ONE FC, and much more.
