No Holds Barred: Daniel Cormier, 2-0 in MMA 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Daniel Cormier, the 2007 world bronze medalist and two-time U.S. Olympian in freestyle wrestling, who was victorious on March 26 in his second mixed martial arts fight with a first-round knockout over John Devine on a Strikeforce card in Fresno, California. You can watch this fight here.

We spoke about this fight and how and why he was able to triumph so quickly in it. He explained how he is applying and incorporating solid boxing technique into his mixed martial arts offense and defense. We discussed why this fight was not televised by Showtime, which has drawn criticism from many fans. We of course discussed the 2010 NCAA Div. I Wrestling Championships, how this remains a tremendous event, some of the top performances at it, and why some colleges produce so many mixed martial arts fighters, including Oklahoma State, where he wrestled and was an All-American. We discussed how many who think they understand mixed martial arts have little or no understanding of the level of wrestling and athleticism in freestyle, in which he won his world bronze medal in 2007 and was a two-time Olympian, and much more.
