No Holds Barred: Tara LaRosa 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with one of the top women mixed martial arts fighters in the world, Tara LaRosa.

She will next be fighting this Wednesday, November 24, on the debut card of the DaMMAge Fight League. This show will take place at the historic Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and will be available on an Internet pay-per-view on GoFightLive.

Her opponent in what is a 125-pound title fight will be Japanese fighter Takayo Hashi.

We spoke with Tara LaRosa Sunday night about this upcoming fight, her career, the growing opportunities for women fighters in mixed martial arts, and the cultural barriers which still exist in some quarters against women fighting in combat sports. We discussed her last fight, a split decision loss in a highly-acclaimed bout with Roxanne Modafferi in May 2010. We also discussed the roles of grappling and striking in mixed martial arts, especially since she comes primarily from a grappling background, the respect between most fighters in mixed martial arts, and much more.
