On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with our Internet radio and podcasting colleague, Bob Carson, host of Carson's Corner.
In a lengthy conversation, we offer a highly critical analysis of the latest UFC show and UFC in general, and why and how this company, under its current ownership, is presenting a version of mixed martial arts which is a disgusting and vulgar product modeled after the fake pro "wrestling". We discuss the state of mixed martial arts and the major promotional companies in America and the world, and go after the many UFC shills in the media. We also comment on how the boxing industry has completely blown an opportunity to attract younger fans who are now watching MMA. We discuss other events and sports which are emerging, such as roller derby and XARM, which tries to combine arm wrestling with kickboxing and jiu-jitsu. And, as expected, we hold nothing back.

The No Holds Barred theme song is called "The Heist", by musician Ian Carpenter.

Eddie - your starting to sound like a grumpy old man. You and Bob are waaaaaay off the mark on many things. You guys both got behind Yamma which brings into question your credibility. Not sure how you can get behind yamma but badmouth the ufc the way you do, get real. I still listen to both your shows, but lately your show has taken a nasty/ugly edge. Ease up on the hate, it's not that bad :-)1 comments Tweet
