No Holds Barred: Strikeforce Challengers and Moosin Review 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman reviews the two mixed martial arts cards which were televised in the U.S. on Friday, May 21, the Strikeforce Challengers card from Portland, Oregon, and the Moosin God of Martial Arts card from Worcester, Massachusetts.

The Strikeforce card was characterized by competitive fights with more questionable officiating and announcing. For example, Matt Lindland won by third-round TKO over Kevin Casey in a fight which should have been stopped much earlier than it was. The many references to actors from the drug-infested fake pro "wrestling" also polluted the show.

The most intriguing televised fight of the night took place on the Moosin card, a 130-pound catch weight fight between top women fighters Roxanne Modafferi and Tara LaRosa. This was a close, action-filled fight, won by Modafferi by a three-round split decision. The complete respect each fighter showed the other before and after this battle was remarkable, and should serve as a model for all fighters.

We discuss this and more, including commentary on the debate on the role of wrestlers and wrestling in mixed martial arts, on this edition of No Holds Barred.
