On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Eric Nicholl of M-1 Global to preview the M-1 Challenge XXV mixed martial arts card, which takes place Thursday, April 28, at the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Besides being shown live on Russian television, M-1 Challenge XXV will be streamed live and for free to the entire world. It can be seen on their web site, M-1Global.com, and the M-1 Facebook page. The stream will begin at 11 AM ET/8 AM PT in North America.
There are two title fights headlining this card. Shamil Zavurov (19-1) will try to defend his M-1 welterweight belt against Sengoku veteran Yasubey Enomoto (6-2), and Vinny Magalhaes (7-5) and Viktor Nemkov (10-2) will fight for the vacant M-1 light heavyweight title.
On Wednesday, we spoke by Skype to Eric Nicholl, who is in St. Petersburg, about this card and the future plans of M-1 Global around the world. Based on the previous M-1 shows, we all expect an exciting card filled with technique, action, and finishes.
