Shamrock KOs Gracie in 21 Seconds 

In what turned out to be an historic show for many reasons, Frank Shamrock knocked out Cesar Gracie in just 21 seconds of the first round Friday night at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. This fight was the main event of the first state-sanctioned mixed martial arts card in California.

According to veteran journalist Eugene Robinson, who was covering the fight ringside for Throwdown Magazine, the arena was packed with 18,265 fans, a new attendance record for mixed martial arts in North America. In an interview which will be run in its entirety on the next edition of “No Holds Barred,” he said this event was “exceedingly healthy for the sport” of mixed martial arts.

You can also find out more about Eugene Robinson on his band’s web site at http://theoxbow.com/.

As announced by Frank Shamrock on the first edition of the new “No Holds Barred” show, this fight card will be broadcast on Fox Sports Net in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more information on that.
