No Holds Barred: Steve Mocco 



On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Steve Mocco.

A two-time NCAA Div. I heavyweight wrestling champion and a member of the 2008 U.S. Olympic freestyle wrestling team, Steve is one of the latest of the many elite wrestlers who are making the transition to mixed martial arts. He is now training full-time with American Top Team and hopes to make his MMA debut in the near future.

We spoke with Steve Mocco by phone Friday about this transition from wrestling to MMA and his training at American Top Team, which he said is "a real good fit for me and a natural move."

We discussed his training in submission and standup fighting, his background in judo, why he decided to go into MMA now, his plans to start fighting professionally, what those running wrestling can do to retain some of the elite athletes who are becoming MMA fighters, and more.

No Holds Barred: Evgeni Kogan on Fedor Retiring and the Future of M-1 Global 





(Photos by Keisha Morrisey)

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Evgeni Kogan, the director of operations of M-1 Global.

On June 21, M-1 Global held a major card in St. Petersburg, Russia, headlined by the first-round knockout by the legend Fedor Emelianenko over Pedro Rizzo. Right after that fight, Fedor announced his retirement as an active fighter.

We spoke with Evgeni Kogan by Skype Tuesday about this card and Fedor's retirement. We discussed Fedor's legacy as a fighter, whether or not he can be considered the best MMA fighter of all time, and if anyone else could ever match his ten-year unbeaten streak against top opposition. We also discussed the other fights on this card, including the third-round TKO win by Kenny Garner over Guram Gugenishvili to capture the M-1 heavyweight title, and the first-round heel hook victory by Musa Khamanaev over Daniel Weichel to win the M-1 lightweight title. And we discussed Jeff Monson's submission win over Denis Komkin and Monson's epic ring entrance as the Soviet national anthem played in the arena.

In addition, we discussed what Fedor might do in retirement, his involvement with amateur MMA in Russia, the officiating and governance in M-1, the plans for international expansion, the possibility of a return to American television, the next M-1 cards, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Rose Gracie and Gracie Worlds; ONE FC Review 




On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Rose Gracie about the submission-only grappling event, the Gracie Worlds. And we review the historic ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors card, which took place June 23 at the Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Gracie Worlds will take place at TheFitExpo on Saturday, July 14, and Sunday, July 15, at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. The gi tournament, including superfights, is on July 14, while the no-gi tournament, also including superfights, is on July 15. In both these tournaments, the only way to win is by submission, as there are no judges or points scored. If there is no submission, neither competitor advances. The adult division matches have 15-minute time limits, while in the finals there is no time limit.

We spoke with Rose Gracie by phone Wednesday about this event and why these rules, which she says come from her late grandfather, Helio Gracie, are needed to revitalize jiu-jitsu. In her event, she said in this interview. "100 percent of the outcome of the matches [is] in the hands of the competitor."

In addition, we discussed the need for drug-testing in jiu-jitsu and grappling, the growing media coverage of her tournaments, the real relation between jiu-jitsu and MMA, and more.

We open this edition of the show with a review of the fights on the ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors card, and comment on some of the lessons from this impressive event. The next ONE FC card will take place August 31 in the historic Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, the Philippines, in which the 1975 "Thrilla in Manila" between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier took place.

Also, we offer a few more comments on the June 21 M-1 Global card in St. Petersburg, Russia, and what might be the best post ever about combat sports posted on Facebook.

No Holds Barred: Renzo Gracie on ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors, Gracie Worlds, and Fedor 




On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA legend Renzo Gracie.

Renzo is currently in Malaysia as the trainer for Gregor Gracie, who is fighting Adam "Shogun" Shahir Kayoom of Phuket Top Team and American Top Team Thailand in a welterweight bout at the ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors card Saturday, June 23, at the Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur.

ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors will be streamed live on http://www.livesport.tv/onefc. The first four undercard fights are free of charge, with the remaining six main card fights available on pay-per-view at US$9.99. The first fight is scheduled for 8 PM Kuala Lumpur time (GMT + 8:00), which is 1 PM in London, 5 AM in San Francisco, and 8 AM in New York City.

We spoke with Renzo by Skype Friday morning (Thursday night in New York) about what to expect in the fight between Gregor Gracie and Adam Kayoom. We discussed all the fights on this card, including the main event of Renato "Babalu" Sobral vs. Tatsuya Mizuno, the welterweight fight between Roger Huerta and Zorobabel "Zoro" Moreira, and the rest of the bouts on this well-balanced and evenly-matched card.

"The good thing now, I'm not just a trainer, I'm the biggest fan of the sport," said Renzo in this interview. "There is nothing that I enjoy more than sit down and watch all those amazing kids go at it."

In addition, Renzo commented approvingly on the innovative submission-only format of the upcoming Gracie Worlds jiu-jitsu and grappling tournaments, the announcement of the retirement of MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko, and more.

No Holds Barred: Paul Johnson on Protesting Solitary Confinement of Floyd Mayweather 



On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with former boxer and long-time activist for boxers' rights, Paul Johnson.

Although based in Minnesota, Paul Johnson is now in Las Vegas, Nevada, holding a one-man protest in front of the Clark County Detention Center, where boxer Floyd Mayweather is serving a three-month sentence for domestic violence. Even though the charge for which Mayweather was convicted is only a misdemeanor, Mayweather has been placed in solitary confinement, which Paul Johnson calls "unfair and inhumane treatment."

We spoke with Paul Johnson by phone Wednesday afternoon about why he feels so strongly on this issue that he has traveled to Las Vegas to protest in front of this facility.

Paul Johnson also has long been involved in the struggle to form a boxers' union. We discussed the prospects for that, and his views on the proposal by U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) to form a United States Boxing Commission (USBC) to oversee professional boxing in the U.S.

The view of Paul Johnson is that what is needed instead of a USBC is the formation of a corporation like the NFL, NBA, etc., which would involve promoters, boxers, trainers, managers, sanctioning bodies, and officials, and have collective bargaining for boxers. We thus discussed how that could occur and how likely it is to happen.

Boxer Protests Unfair Treatment of Floyd Mayweather 



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Paul Johnson

June 14, 2012

Former middleweight boxer Paul Johnson feels so strongly about the treatment of Floyd Mayweather by correction officials in Las Vegas that he left his home in Minnesota to protest in front of the Clark County Detention Center.

Mr. Johnson believes that Floyd Mayweather should serve the full three month sentence imposed by the court for domestic violence. However, the court determined that his actions were a misdemeanor and Mr. Johnson says he should be treated the same as other misdemeanor offenders. He is not. Floyd Mayweather is put in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day, which Mr. Johnson believes is unfair and inhumane treatment. His protest is designed to urge the Clark County Detention Center to find an alternative.

Correction officials in Las Vegas say that Floyd Mayweather is in solitary confinement for his own protection from other inmates in the general population. Johnson’s response is that if the Clark County Detention Center can’t facilitate Mayweather’s isolation other than solitary confinement they should transfer him to a facility which can. After all, the bird man of Alcatraz was isolated from the general population and was not put in the solitary confinement.

Johnson also says that he has been informed that inmates have died while in solitary confinement because of the conditions.

Nederlander to announce the opening of the show called "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth".

At the news conference, the media present participated in an extended question-and-answer session with the speakers.

After the news conference, we spoke with our correspondent Keisha Morrisey, who has known Mike Tyson for over 25 years. We discussed whether or not this show, which premiered in Las Vegas in March but may be altered for Broadway, will actually provide the undisputed truth about the controversial life and career of Mike Tyson both inside and outside the ring.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents three more interviews conducted at the historic ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012 in Singapore, with Heath Sims, Ole Laursen, and Lee Li.

A member of the 2000 U.S. Olympic Greco-Roman wrestling team, and a former co-owner of the Team Quest MMA facility, Heath Sims is now based in Singapore and is an instructor in wrestling and MMA at Evolve MMA.

Ole Laursen is a former kickboxer, a current MMA fighter, and owner of the Legacy Gym.

Lee Li, who is also our Asian correspondent, is the founder and editor of the web site MMA in Asia.

We spoke with them on June 3, the final day of the ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012.

"I think the most important part of this event was everyone came to together and realized the same vision of growing the sport here in Asia," said Heath Sims in his interview. "It's not a fantasy anymore -- it's happening." We also discussed the role of wrestling and wrestlers in MMA, his transition to living in Singapore, and more.

Ole Laursen discussed how MMA "is coming back home to Asia" and will have no limit, plans for him to fight in Manila, his new gym in the Philippines, and the importance of the ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012 as both a gym owner and a fighter.

Lee Li discussed the significance of the ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012, the need for gyms to develop fighters and prepare them properly to enter the professional ranks, the role of amateur MMA, the growth of MMA all over Asia, the possibility of ONE FC running an event in Japan, and what works in different countries.

In addition, we read and discuss the statement issued by Bibiano Fernandes, the Dream bantamweight champion, rebutting media reports which he called "false" which claimed that he had signed with the UFC.

No Holds Barred: John Perretti on the Pacquiao-Bradley Debacle and Scandal 






On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with our senior correspondent and the veteran martial artist John Perretti.

This past Saturday, June 9, once again we saw an outrageous decision in a major boxing match held in Las Vegas, Nevada. With about 99 percent of those watching the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley fight agreeing that Pacquiao had clearly won the 12-round fight, two of the three judges incredibly gave it to Bradley, giving him a split decision victory, and again exposing the horrific governance in the sport of boxing.

We spoke with John Perretti Monday afternoon by phone about boxing's latest debacle and scandal. We discussed the issue of whether this absurd verdict was the result of incompetence or corruption, and what we actually know now. We examined the role of gambling in fixing results in sports in general. We discussed why having the Nevada authorities investigate this, as promoter Bob Arum has called for, is, in John Perretti's words, like having "Hitler investigate Mussolini."

We also discussed the role of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, the need for the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate this matter, and the need for a U.S. National Combat Sports Commission to oversee professional boxing, mixed martial arts, and kickboxing. We noted the importance of social media in recording and mobilizing popular outrage about this scandal, why this will make it much harder for this debacle to be forgotten with time, and much more.

In addition, we open by presenting an update on the memorial activities for Grand Master Roger Clark, who passed last week at age 47 from a heart attack. In his honor, there will be a free memorial martial arts seminar this Saturday, June 16, at I.S. 292 at 301 Vermont Street in Brooklyn, New York.

No Holds Barred: Chatri Sityodtong on the Two Superpowers of MMA 





(Photos of Chatri Sityodtong and Eddie Goldman by Lee Li)

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Chatri Sityodtong, the founder and chairman of the top martial arts organization in Asia, the Singapore-based Evolve MMA.

Chatri electrified the historic ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012 in Singapore with his presentation on June 2 in which he declared that in five to ten years, Asian MMA would surpass MMA in the U.S. and be "the center of the world."

We spoke with Chatri on June 3 between sessions on the final day of the Summit.

We discussed why he believes that there will be two superpowers in the world in MMA (ONE FC and UFC), why ONE FC will surpass everyone else in the world in popularity, where Asian MMA fighters currently rank on a worldwide basis, the development of amateur MMA in Asia, and more.

We also open with the sad news of the passing of Grand Master Roger Clark, who touched so many lives in the New York area by bringing martial arts to the youth.

In addition, we discuss the announcement that News Corporation was buying the 50 percent stake in Asia's ESPN STAR Sports which they did not already own, from The Walt Disney Company, the parent company of ESPN. We read a statement from Victor Cui, the CEO of ONE FC, which has a ten-year deal with ESPN STAR Sports, calling this "fantastic news."

And we encourage people to continue educating themselves on the issue of the dangers of performance-enhancing drugs in sports, and read a number of recent articles on this subject on MaxBoxing.com and FightOpinion.com, and in Sports Illustrated.

Matt was one of the featured speakers at the historic ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012, held June 1-3 in Singapore. His presentations included topics such as how to build fighters properly, the need for good governance of both professional and amateur MMA, how ONE FC has blended the best rules from Pride and the North American unified rules, the need for strong anti-doping measures in MMA, and why MMA is presently not organized like a sport.

We spoke with Matt Hume right after the conclusion of the ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012 on Sunday, June 3, in Singapore. We further discussed the issues he had raised in his presentations, making for an essential discussion about many of the key issues facing mixed martial arts globally.
