No Holds Barred: Chris Thomas, Carl Mascarenhas, Weekend Fight Previews
Denver, CO

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with our correspondent Chris Thomas (, and with Carl Mascarenhas, president and CEO of the DaMMAge Fight League (

With Chris, we primarily previewed the many fights coming up this weekend, including the highly-anticipated M-1 Challenge XXII on Friday, December 10, in Moscow, Russia, and the K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 Final in Tokyo, Japan, on Saturday, December 11. We also discussed three other fight cards scheduled for December 11: the Showtime Bantamweight Tournament, the Amir Khan-Marcos Maidana WBA 140-pound title fight, and the UFC 124 Georges St-Pierre-Josh Koscheck fight. While we had different assessments of these events, we agreed which one is likeliest to be the best of the weekend: the K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 Final.

With Carl, we discussed the future plans for the DaMMAge Fight League. Their next card is slated to be on Saturday, February 26, 2011, with an exact location and fight card to be announced shortly.

We spoke with both Chris and Carl in New York on Thursday night.

The first round of the two-stage, single-elimination Showtime Bantamweight Tournament will take place Saturday, December 11, at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, and will be televised live in the U.S. on Showtime. On that card, unbeaten IBF bantamweight champion Yonnhy Perez (20-0-1, 14 KOs), of Santa Fe Springs, California, by way of Colombia, will face the fighter from whom he captured that title in October 2009, Joseph King Kong Agbeko (27-2, 22 KOs), of the Bronx, New York, by way of Ghana, Africa.

The exciting former flyweight and super flyweight world champion Vic Darchinyan (35-2-1, 27 KOs) of Sydney, Australia, by way of Armenia, will fight the undefeated Abner Mares (20-0-1, 13 KOs) of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, who now resides in Montebello, California.

We spoke with Yonnhy Perez, Joseph King Kong Agbeko, Vic Darchinyan, and Abner Mares on media conference calls to get their views on what to expect in this important tournament.

No Holds Barred: Chatri Sityodtong of Evolve MMA on the Asia MMA Revolution
Denver, CO

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Chatri Sityodtong, the founder of the largest mixed martial arts academy and martial arts training organization in Asia, Evolve MMA (

Based in Singapore, he has also been a professional Muay Thai fighter, and is currently an instructor at Evolve MMA in Singapore, as well as a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under the legendary Renzo Gracie.

Fighters from Evolve MMA have been competing in many competitions in several combat sports, including in mixed martial arts in the Singapore-based Martial Combat ( The fights from that organization are televised throughout Asia on ESPN Star.

In addition, Evolve MMA is a founding member of the Asian Mixed Martial Arts Federation (AMMAF) ( This is the official governing body for the sport of MMA within Asia.

"Be on the lookout for the Asia MMA revolution," Chatri Sityodtong advised us during our lengthy interview conducted Tuesday by Skype. He explained how Evolve MMA has rapidly expanded during its brief existence, and is already regarded as one of the best academies in the world. We discussed both its staff, which includes dozens of world-class instructors in many disciplines, and its fighters, who are finding success in MMA competitions all around the world.

We also discussed the level of competition in Martial Combat, which recently has completed its first season, and what is expected in 2011. We analyzed what is happening in MMA throughout Asia, including in China and Japan, and what we expect to happen in those countries.

In addition, we discussed Evolve fighter Yodsanan Sor Nanthachai Sityodtong, a.k.a. Yodsanan 3-K Battery, who held the WBA super featherweight title in boxing from 2002 to 2005, and now is training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and may fight professionally in mixed martial arts.

There is a lot more to this discussion, which both introduces mixed martial arts in Asia outside Japan to those who are unfamiliar with it, as well as analyzes the sport there and forecasts Asia as becoming a major world center for the sport.

No Holds Barred: John Perretti and Matt Phillips on the Origin of Mixed Martial Arts
Denver, CO

On this special edition of No Holds Barred, which is show number 500 for this podcast, host Eddie Goldman is joined by the legendary matchmaker, martial artist, and our senior correspondent, John Perretti, and Matt Phillips of the Martial Arts Resource Group, which has been documenting and spreading the word about MMA online and offline since 1993.

There has been plenty written and said about the origin and meaning of the term "mixed martial arts", but, like much else about the history of this sport, most of it is inaccurate. We discuss the first documented, written use of the term "mixed martial arts", in a news release in September 1995 for the first show of Battlecade Extreme Fighting, of which John Perretti was a partner, producer, commentator, and matchmaker. John Perretti also explains that he had been using that term since 1979. We also discuss how this sport developed from featuring fights between martial artists of different styles, to one where, in theory at least, there were complete fighters who had mastered a variety of grappling and striking techniques. This lengthy, rich discussion also includes commentary on recent events, comparisons of the level of athletes in early and present-day fights, the predominant style of fighting today, and much, much more.

Also, No Holds Barred is available through iTunes at

No Holds Barred: King Mo Lawal, Strikeforce Preview
Denver, CO

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the December 4 Strikeforce mixed martial arts card, and speaks with former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion "King" Mo Lawal (

The Strikeforce show will take place Saturday night, December 4, at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri, and will be shown live in the U.S. on Showtime. The main event pits two veteran former champions against one another, as Dan Henderson faces Renato "Babalu" Sobral in a light heavyweight bout. Also, Paul Daley fights Scott Smith in a welterweight fight, Robbie Lawler fights Matt Lindland in a middleweight fight, and Antonio "Big Foot" Silva fights Mike Kyle in a heavyweight fight.

On a series of media conference calls, we got some quick assessments of what to expect in these fights from Dan Henderson, Renato "Babalu" Sobral, Paul Daley, Scott Smith, Robbie Lawler, and Matt Lindland. We also heard a comment from Strikeforce CEO about the status of negotiations between Strikeforce, Showtime, and M-1 Global to extend the contract of the legendary heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko with Strikeforce.

On Wednesday, we spoke at length with "King" Mo Lawal. He gave us an estimate of when he will be able to return to Strikeforce following his rehab from surgery. We discussed the December 4 Strikeforce card and the main fights on it. Mo Lawal will also be a guest commentator on the December 11 HDNet telecast of the K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 Final at the Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo, Japan, and also a guest on MMA Live on ESPN2 late Thursday night, December 2. We discussed the K-1 card and why we expect it to be very exciting, as well as some of the developments in boxing this year, including why Sergio Martinez deserves to be named fighter of the year in that sport. We also discussed the great sport of wrestling, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Shelley Devine on the State of Women in Mixed Martial Arts
Denver, CO

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with mixed martial arts writer, matchmaker, and trainer Shelley Devine (

Her focus has been on the advancing the role of women fighters in mixed martial arts, and that was also the focus of our discussion.

During 2010, opportunities for women fighters have grown in many MMA promotions. We discussed this development, along with what to expect in 2011 and beyond. We commented on the decision victory on November 24 by Tara LaRosa over Takayo Hashi to capture the DaMMAge Fight League 125-pound belt, and on what has been happening with many of the women fighters in Strikeforce, Bellator, M-1 Global, and other organizations. We discussed the potential for an all-women's MMA group to succeed, and some of the obstacles it will face. The differences between the cultures in Japan and America, and the level of acceptance of women fighters, was also addressed, as was some of the history of pioneering women MMA fighters, such as Becky Levi. Shelley Devine also explained why women, like men, have a "warrior spirit" and should be allowed to fight wherever men do, and much more.

We discussed her last fight, a split decision loss in a highly-acclaimed bout with Roxanne Modafferi in May 2010.

No Holds Barred: Renzo Gracie, Felicia Oh, Valerie Worthington
Denver, CO

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman focuses primarily on grappling, as we once again speak with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and mixed martial arts legend Renzo Gracie, and with grapplers and grappling trainers Felicia Oh and Valerie Worthington.

We spoke with Renzo Gracie ( at the MMA World Expo in New York as the Renzo Gracie Open No-Gi 2010 tournament was going on. We discussed this tournament, the potential for grappling to grow as a sport, and the key role of grappling in mixed martial arts. We also discussed the 2010 ADCC North American Championships, which take place Saturday, November 20, at Belleville High School in Belleville, New Jersey.

Felicia Oh ( and Valerie Worthington ( have just completed a whirlwind coast-to-coast trip where they conducted two Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and grappling seminars in two straight days. The first was on Saturday, November 13, in Woodland Hills, California, and the second was on Sunday, November 14, in Princeton, New Jersey. Both seminars helped raise funds for local charities.

We spoke with Felicia Oh and Valerie Worthington about these seminars, the role of the Women's Grappling Camp, the growing participation of women in grappling, their work with charities, how grappling tournaments can better accommodate women grapplers, and more. You can find out more about all of these topics, including how to help these charities, at the Women's Grappling Camp blog, at

No Holds Barred: Coach Kevin Jackson Previews 2010-11 Iowa State Wrestling
Denver, CO

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Kevin Jackson, the Olympic gold medalist and two-time world champion freestyle wrestler, who is starting his second season as head wrestling coach for the legendary Iowa State Cyclones (

The 2010-2011 college wrestling season for the Cyclones officially starts this Saturday, November 6, with dual meets against Virginia Tech and Kent State in Salem, Virginia. On Sunday, November 7, the Hokie Open takes place, also in Salem, Virginia. The highly-anticipated annual showdown between Iowa State and the defending NCAA Div. I national champions, the Iowa Hawkeyes, takes place Friday, December 3, at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa.

We spoke at length with Coach Jackson about what to expect this season, especially with the graduation of their two 2009-2010 national champions, Jake Varner and David Zabriskie. He explained the status of Andrew Long, who was a 2009-2010 runner-up as a freshman at 125 pounds, and who is not on the Cyclone roster at this time. We discussed who are expected to be the leaders on the Cyclone team this year, and which wrestlers are the likely starters, including two-time All-American Jon Reader. He also stated that witnessing live an Iowa State-Iowa wrestling dual meet is one of the greatest experiences a sports fan could ever have, and much more.

Also, No Holds Barred is available through iTunes at

The show is in MP3 format, so may take some time to download.

The ADCC North American Championships 2010 will be held Saturday, November 20, 2010, at the Belleville High School Gymnasium at 100 Passaic Avenue in Belleville, New Jersey. Registration to compete in this event ends November 13. This is a qualifying event for the most prestigious grappling tournament in the world, the ADCC World Submission Fighting Championships. The 2011 edition of this event will be held at a time and place to be announced.

We spoke Sunday evening with Emilio Novoa about the ADCC North American Championships and the goals of the ADCC North American Federation. We had a wide-ranging discussion on topics including why the various styles of grappling are the best combat sports, what they must do to fulfill their potential to become major spectator sports, and how grappling tournaments should be run. We also encouraged everyone to support the ADCC events, whether they be competitors, coaches, fans, or media, and much more.
