    No Holds Barred: Amber Lee Ettinger aka Obama Girl 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing the important role of women in the combat sports and the need for them to have equal opportunity with men.

    In the main interview segment on this show, we speak with actress, model, and performer Amber Lee Ettinger. She has recently gained much notoriety for her performance as Obama Girl in the wildly popular music video "I Got a Crush on Obama". This video, by the way, was not affiliated with the campaign of now-President-elect Barack Obama.

    We discuss with Amber her experience in playing Obama Girl, the impact this video had on the American presidential election, her previous experiences as a ring card girl at numerous boxing cards, what her current and future plans are, and more.

    No Holds Barred: Todd Hester of Gladiator Magazine Names Eddie Goldman "Conscience of the Combat Sports" 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • NO HOLDS BARRED on DojoRadio.com


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman begins by commenting on the controversy around the November 15 mixed martial arts fight between Brock Lesnar and Randy Couture at UFC 91. We go to the No Holds Barred e-mail bag for an insightful analysis by a listener about how this fight may have symbolized "The Day That MMA Died", and then critique a number of so-called "experts" writing in the mainstream media defending the UFC promoters for handing the inexperienced Lesnar this title shot and inflating what his real athletic credentials are.

    In the main part of this show, we speak with our long-time colleague, Todd Hester, the publisher and editor-in-chief of Gladiator Magazine. Todd is also a correspondent on this show.

    In its November 2008 edition, Gladiator Magazine announced that it has presented its first-ever Lifetime Journalism Achievement Award to Eddie Goldman. In an article in its November 2008 issue, Eddie Goldman was also named the "Conscience of the Combat Sports".

    In a lengthy interview, we discuss why this award was given, and then, as is befitting on a show called No Holds Barred, jump into explaining and analyzing some of the pressing problems in the combat sports of mixed martial arts, boxing, and wrestling.

    You can play or download No Holds Barred here or here. You can also download No Holds Barred here. If one link does not work, please try another. The show is in MP3 format, so may take some time to download.

    Gladiator Magazine Presents Eddie Goldman First-Ever Lifetime Journalism Achievement Award, Names Him "Conscience of the Combat Sports" 

    For Immediate Release

    LOS ANGELES, Calif., Nov. 24 -- Gladiator Magazine, which provides in-depth coverage of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, submission grappling, and mixed martial arts, has announced that it has presented its first-ever Lifetime Journalism Achievement Award to veteran combat sports journalist Eddie Goldman. In an article in its November 2008 issue, Eddie Goldman was also named the "Conscience of the Combat Sports".

    Eddie Goldman presently is the host and producer of the No Holds Barred podcast and SecondsOut Radio, publishes the No Holds Barred blog, is a senior contributing editor at the ADCC News, and contributes to numerous publications, web sites, and media outlets.

    "An advocate for the combat sports based on his philosophical viewpoint that the warrior culture is a noble calling that has the power to transform lives, Goldman has somehow managed to provide expert commentary not just on mixed martial arts but also boxing, college and Olympic wrestling, and many other endeavors that stretch its participants to their ultimate capacity," said Todd Hester, publisher and editor-in-chief of Gladiator Magazine.

    "It is with great pleasure that Gladiator Magazine is proud to present its first Lifetime Journalism Achievement Award to Eddie Goldman for his work promoting all the combat sports."

    "This is indeed a great and humbling honor for me to receive such an award," said Eddie Goldman. "I just try to tell the truth and stand up for what is right, both of which seem to be vanishing practices in this era of corporate concentration in the mainstream media, the relentless attacks on independent, rational, and critical thinking, especially in America, and the lack of integrity and spine in so many of the so-called journalists of today."

    SecondsOut Radio: Joseph Agbeko, Jorge Teron, More on the Decline of American Boxing 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing the unfortunately recurrent theme of the decline of American boxing. This decline was most recently written about by veteran UK sports writer Kevin Mitchell in a piece on the sports blogs of the Guardian of the UK entitled "US boxing is in danger of being consumed by its own bastard children". We comment on that article, and also discuss why having top 140-pound fighter Ricky Hatton, victorious this past Saturday night over Paulie Malignaggi, fight the Oscar De La Hoya-Manny Pacquiao winner is also not good for boxing.

    One champion fighter who has been absent from action for over a year is IBF bantamweight champ Joseph "King Kong" Agbeko (25-1, 22 KOs). Originally from Ghana and now fighting out of the Bronx, New York, Agbeko is now finally supposed to be defending his belt December 11 in Newark, New Jersey, against challenger William Gonzalez (21-2, 19 KOs).

    Before this December 11 fight was announced, we caught up with Joseph "King Kong" Agbeko at a New York news conference to discuss the reasons for his absence from the ring, and his plans to defend his title.

    Another fighter having difficulty securing a date is lightweight prospect Jorge "The Truth" Teron (22-0-1, 15 KOs). The 23-year-old Teron, also from the Bronx, New York, had been scheduled to face journeyman Aldo Valtierra (24-10, 13 KOs) on November 21, but that entire card was cancelled. However, Teron will now be facing Valtierra on a card on Thursday, December 4, at Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan, New York, promoted by Bob Duffy's Ring Promotions.

    Again, before the November 21 show was cancelled, we had a chance at a New York news conference to speak with Jorge Teron about his plans and his career.

    Last but not least, the subject of the serious problems facing boxing was also discussed this past week on the "Joey Reynolds Show", a national radio broadcast in New York on WOR 710 AM and on 100 other stations via the WOR Network, and also available online. The guests in this segment were myself, Eddie Goldman, and comedian Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling, who is also a boxing fan.

    In a discussion led by Joey Reynolds, also a big supporter of boxing, we focused upon the continuing problems with the treatment of the media at the Nov. 8 fight between Joe Calzaghe and Roy Jones Jr. at Madison Square Garden, as well as other problems plaguing the sport.

    Eddie Goldman and Jackie Martling on Joey Reynolds Show 

    Eddie Goldman of No Holds Barred and SecondsOut Radio and comedian Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling were guests on the nationally-syndicated "Joey Reynolds Show" late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning, November 18/19. Eddie Goldman is also the boxing correspondent for the "Joey Reynolds Show".

    While Jackie provided a healthy dose of his edgy humor, Eddie focused on some serious problems facing boxing which are far from a joke, but are turning that sport into one. Joey and Eddie discussed the continuing problems with the treatment of the media at the Nov. 8 fight between Joe Calzaghe and Roy Jones Jr. at Madison Square Garden, as well as other problems plaguing that sport. But we also had a little time to discuss some good sports news, the revival of roller derby.

    You can listen to all this right here.

    SecondsOut Radio: Calzaghe-Jones and the Decline of American Boxing, with Keisha Morrisey 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman discusses how the November 8 card at Madison Square Garden in New York, headlined by the one-sided drubbing by Joe Calzaghe of Roy Jones Jr., was yet another sign of the long decline of American boxing.

    We also discuss this theme with Keisha Morrisey, who was there covering the fight. We discuss the fight itself, the future of Roy Jones Jr. after this loss, why fighters need to learn the boxing business, the poor marketing done to get the fans to know who these fighters are, the failure to reach the urban market, and more.
