On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Art Davie, a co-founder of the UFC who is now the CEO of XARM.
XARM is a new, hybrid combat sport, which combines kickboxing, jiu-jitsu, and arm wrestling.
While some of the commentaries on XARM have been quite superficial, in a lengthy interview, we discuss with Art Davie the concept behind XARM, how it plans to fit into the combat sports world, what the criticisms of it have been, how it has already evolved and will likely continue to evolve, what are the plans to develop the sport, how it is related to the growth of both the Internet and mobile technology, and more. We also touch on some of the many problems facing mixed martial arts, from its formative days to the present.
