No Holds Barred: Kid Peligro on the Mundials, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Grappling, and Mixed Martial Arts
On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with our colleague Kid Peligro, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, a senior editor of the ADCC News, and a correspondent on our show.
In a lengthy and candid interview, we discuss numerous topics, including the victory by Xande Ribeiro in the absolutes at the 2008 World Jiu-Jitsu Championships, the crossover of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athletes to MMA, how Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the foundation of MMA, how the current overall direction of MMA reflects a bias towards striking over grappling, the opposing values which are predominantly promoted by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA, the next Fury Fighting Championship MMA event July 12 in Rio de Janeiro, the connection between Fury FC and the Japanese MMA promotion Dream, which member of the Gracie family might become the next big star in MMA, why the Japanese MMA promoters seem more interested in the Gracies than the American promoters, and more.
You can also watch Kid Peligro's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu video interviews on the KidPeligroBJJNews on YouTube.
