No Holds Barred: Tyron Woodley, Mikkel Kessler, Andre Ward 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the big weekend of mixed martial arts and boxing to be televised live in the U.S. on Showtime.

We once again spoke with the unbeaten mixed martial arts fighter and two-time All-American wrestler and Big 12 wrestling champion from the University of Missouri, Tyron Woodley. He fights veteran Rudy Bears this Friday night, November 20, on a Strikeforce Challengers mixed martial arts card from Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas. We discussed what he expects in this fight, why he feels his striking is now even better than his grappling, and more. We also discussed the Strikeforce debut on the undercard of his former teammate at the University of Missouri and current training partner, All-American Michael Chandler.

We also preview the much-anticipated fight between WBA super middleweight champion Mikkel Kessler of Denmark (42-1, 32 KOs) and the undefeated Andre Ward of Oakland, California (20-0, 13 KOs). This fight takes place this Saturday, November 21, at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. This is their first fight in the first stage of bouts in the historic Super Six World Boxing Classic super middleweight tournament. We spoke with both Mikkel Kessler and Andre Ward on two media conference calls. They told us what to expect in their fights, how their styles match up, what effect this unique tournament format will or will not have on how they approach this fight, and more.
