No Holds Barred: King Mo Lawal, Strikeforce Preview 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the December 4 Strikeforce mixed martial arts card, and speaks with former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion "King" Mo Lawal.

The Strikeforce show will take place Saturday night, December 4, at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri, and will be shown live in the U.S. on Showtime. The main event pits two veteran former champions against one another, as Dan Henderson faces Renato "Babalu" Sobral in a light heavyweight bout. Also, Paul Daley fights Scott Smith in a welterweight fight, Robbie Lawler fights Matt Lindland in a middleweight fight, and Antonio "Big Foot" Silva fights Mike Kyle in a heavyweight fight.

On a series of media conference calls, we got some quick assessments of what to expect in these fights from Dan Henderson, Renato "Babalu" Sobral, Paul Daley, Scott Smith, Robbie Lawler, and Matt Lindland. We also heard a comment from Strikeforce CEO about the status of negotiations between Strikeforce, Showtime, and M-1 Global to extend the contract of the legendary heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko with Strikeforce.

On Wednesday, we spoke at length with "King" Mo Lawal. He gave us an estimate of when he will be able to return to Strikeforce following his rehab from surgery. We discussed the December 4 Strikeforce card and the main fights on it. Mo Lawal will also be a guest commentator on the December 11 HDNet telecast of the K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 Final at the Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo, Japan, and also a guest on MMA Live on ESPN2 late Thursday night, December 2. We discussed the K-1 card and why we expect it to be very exciting, as well as some of the developments in boxing this year, including why Sergio Martinez deserves to be named fighter of the year in that sport. We also discussed the great sport of wrestling, and much more.
