NO HOLDS BARRED Parts One and Two: Randy Couture, Pericles Lewnes, and the Documentary "FIGHTER" 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic

  • On this special two-part edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman speaks with mixed martial arts and wrestling legend Randy Couture and filmmaker and former wrestler Pericles Lewnes. We focus both on the extraordinary career of Couture and the new documentary film about him shot by Lewnes, called "FIGHTER", which premiered last Friday, October 6, at a film festival at the world famous Mann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, Calif.

    In part one, we speak with Randy Couture about his role as a wrestler, both a four-time U.S. Greco-Roman national champion and a three-time All-American at Oklahoma State, entering the world of mixed martial arts and the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in 1997. We discuss his current activities, including his upcoming submission wrestling match in the Professional Submission League in November, and his new position with The Fight Network. We also discuss the relations between the mixed martial arts and wrestling worlds, and his views on the state of both today.

    In part two, we speak with Peri Lewnes about the documentary "FIGHTER". This film provides a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into the mixed martial arts world of the mid- to late-1990s. The film also documents the key role played by former NCAA wrestling champion and Iowa Hawkeye Rico Chiapparelli in training wrestlers to make the transition to mixed martial arts. That period is considered by yours truly as the real Golden Age of UFC.

    The documentary "FIGHTER" is a must-see for all those interested in mixed martial arts, wrestling, combat sports, or sports in general. It pulls no punches, and is thus a treat for those who like their combat sports history no-holds-barred.

    "FIGHTER" is available on video from MMA Classics. The web site of Randy Couture is here. The web site of his new gym, the Legends Mixed Martial Arts Training Center in Hollywood, Calif., is here.
