On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with Paul Paone and Vinh Hua of the MMA World Expo.
This year the Fifth Annual MMA World Expo will be held Saturday, July 26, and Sunday, July 27, and once again at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, where it has been held every year since it began.
We spoke with Paul Paone and Vinh Hua at the world headquarters of the MMA World Expo in New York this past Friday.
"The absolute main attraction is going to be the Fighters Source Nationals," said Paul Paone. This amateur MMA national championship is "a culmination of their year-long series of tournaments that they've held throughout the U.S. And it's taking place Saturday, July 26th, from 6 to 9 PM. It basically wraps up our show that evening."
He added, "That is our main, main event, but we do have two other events that are taking place."
Vinh Hua next explained what will happen at these other live competitions.
"ADCC America will be holding a major tournament, their major New York East Coast tournament" in grappling, said Vinh Hua. "They'll be doing no-gi on Saturday and they'll be doing gi on Sunday. Registration is open, so if listeners who are competitors are out there, they should sign up."
In addition, "Snake Pit wrestling is doing a catch-as-catch-can tournament," he said, referring to the 2014 Catch Wrestling World Championship, presented by the Snake Pit U.S.A. This will take place Sunday, July 27, also at the MMA World Expo. Registration is still open for that tournament. Also, right before the catch wrestling tournament begins, there will be a free one-hour catch wrestling seminar, starting at 10:30 AM on July 27.
We discussed these live events, the plans for many fighters to make appearances, the numerous vendors and seminars at the MMA World Expo, why the Expo has been successful for so many years, and much more.
