On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses some of the problems evident and lessons from this past weekend's U.S. Open Wrestling Championships and its telecast on NBC's Universal Sports, from Las Vegas, Nevada, including the confusing rules, starting the Jordan Burroughs-David Taylor final after midnight EDT, and poor TV presentation; the latest ridiculous verdict in boxing, with only a split decision win for Bernard Hopkins over Beibut Shumenov in their April 19 light heavyweight title unification fight in Washington, D.C.; and the issue of when or if jiu-jitsu would or could ever be added to the Olympic program.
