No Holds Barred: Matt Hume on ONE FC: Rise of Kings and Self-Governance in MMA 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with mixed martial arts legend and the vice president of operations and competition for the ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC), Matt Hume.

The next ONE FC card will be this Saturday, October 6, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. There will be a lightweight super fight between Shinya "Tobikan Judan" Aoki and Arnaud "The Game" Lepont and two fights for newly-created ONE FC titles. Zorobabel "Zoro" Moreira will face Kotetsu Boku for the lightweight belt and Leandro Issa will fight Soo Chul Kim for the bantamweight belt.

ONE FC: Rise of Kings will be shown on same-day tape-delay on pay-per-view television in the U.S., and on a live online pay-per-view at http://www.onefc.com/livestream.

We spoke with Matt Hume by phone Thursday before he left for Singapore for this show. We discussed this stacked card, as well as issues related to the ONE FC rules, their model of self-governance, fighter safety, the allowing of soccer kicks to the head of downed fighters, the establishment of ONE FC belts and titles, amateur MMA, and more.

"When you have self-governance, someone without integrity or a group without integrity can do things they shouldn't be doing," he said in this interview. "But if you have integrity, the group that you're working with has integrity, then that's going to be the best situation because you provide the quality control. There's nothing that's beyond your control there."
