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.
