On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with Mario Marin, a former professional fighter who has competed in Muay Thai, boxing, and MMA, and is now head coach at Team Red Planet - Muay Thai. He is also the trainer for a new series of self-defense training sessions called Trans Boxing Brooklyn. These classes are for trans and gender nonconforming people who want to learn self-defense or even just have a good workout, in a trans-friendly environment. He is working with Nola Hanson and Joss Martinez on these classes, which are chiefly aimed at beginners. The next class is Thursday, August 24, from 6-7 PM EDT. The location is Team Red Planet - Muay Thai, 105 Ralph Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11221. It is free to attend, although donations are suggested. We spoke with Mario Marin by phone Wednesday. "The event itself is basically a safe space environment we're providing for transgender, non-binary persons, that perhaps don't feel comfortable going to your average boxing gym or your average Muay Thai gym," said Mario Marin, who is cis (not trans) and straight. "I train in a lot of gyms, and I can understand that it can be a little bit macho or a little bit intimidating for some people. And so we wanted to create a time and place where you can just show up and be yourself, and nobody really is going to ask any questions, and put out a great environment for training. "I feel that boxing is a great form of self-defense, and I feel that it's a great exercise, and it should be available to basically anyone at any time. But unfortunately it's not always the case, and so we're starting from scratch." With this, their third class, "Hopefully from there we can grow, and just continue to add more and more classes, and create just a wonderful, enjoyable environment for transgender and non-binary persons." We also discussed how "to learn to fight is to fight"; how this training can develop self-confidence for its participants "from the inside out"; why it is important for trans, non-binary, and gender nonconforming people to take up an interest in combat sports; how future classes may also be held in grappling styles such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and catch wrestling; and much, much more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with Dr. Bennet Omalu. He was in New York Monday, August 7, to give a presentation at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in New York, and hosted by the New York Press Club, about his new book, Truth Doesn't Have a Side. Dr. Omalu is the pioneering forensic pathologist who was the first to prove a connection between the head trauma and brain injuries which inherently result from playing American football, and the disease CTE, chronic traumatic encephalopathy. We spoke with him right after this presentation, and mainly about why he included wrestling in his list of high-contact sports which children under the age of 18 should avoid, which are football, boxing, MMA, ice hockey, and rugby. A study published September 2015 in the American Journal of Sports Medicine found that college wrestling has the highest rate of concussions of any college sport, including football. But as to rules changes in wrestling to make it safer, Dr. Omalu said, "I tend to defer to the sports experts, because I'm not an expert in many of these sports." Dr. Omalu, however, sees wrestling's problems as being far deeper than just the levels of head trauma and brain injuries. "The problem with wrestling is," he said, "there's no professional wrestling outside WWE. "So if you, say, allow wrestling in children, that means you're encouraging children eventually to go into MMA or WWE. Does that make sense? So that is why I lump all of them together, because I see it as a spectrum." In addition to his comments on the combat and contact sports, we add commentaries on some of the issues related to CTE, concussions, and combat sports. Those include the prevalence of concussions in judo, breaking the links between real wrestling and grappling and both WWE and MMA, the need for combat sports training for self-defense, and much, much more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents the complete audio from the August 7 presentation by Dr. Bennet Omalu at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in New York, and hosted by the New York Press Club, as well as the informative and lively question-and-answer session which followed the presentation. Dr. Omalu is the pioneering forensic pathologist who was the first to prove a connection between the head trauma and brain injuries which inherently result from playing American football, and the disease CTE, chronic traumatic encephalopathy. He was in New York conducting interviews as part of a tour to promote his new book, Truth Doesn't Have a Side. In the discussion, Dr. Omalu passionately voiced his opposition to children under the age of 18 playing American football or engaging in other contact sports. "Do you love your child less than you love football? Which do you love more, football, or the life of your child? This is a question society should answer," he said. As to the continuing popularity of NFL football, he said, "It's all about money. We are placing money above the value of the life of our children. But I believe strongly, in the fullness of time, it will change, because the truth will prevail. Does that make sense?" And he specified, "I have always said, and it has been my position forever, that no child under the age of 18, in America today, should play the high-impact, high-contact collision sports. The Big Six are American football, ice hockey, mixed martial arts, wrestling, boxing, rugby." A one-on-one interview with Dr. Omalu will be posted on a subsequent edition of No Holds Barred.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the heavyweight maze which so many fighters want to get through to get a title shot at the division's best and most popular fighter, IBF and WBA champion Anthony Joshua. This past week, the 41-year-old former champion Wladimir Klitschko announced his retirement from boxing. We discuss the positives and negatives from his lengthy career. The scramble to get big money title fights is often inhibited or even prevented by the various rival sanctioning bodies naming undeserving and little known fighters as mandatory challengers for their champions. We discuss the mess with the various heavyweight mandatories put forth by the WBA, WBC, and IBF, a mess which has gotten worse since Klitschko's retirement. We also discuss what may be ahead for WBC champ Deontay Wilder, who wants to fight Joshua next; for Luis "King Kong" Ortiz, now Joshua's WBA mandatory, while no one seems to want to fight him; for Joshua, who seems to be set to face his IBF mandatory, Kubrat Pulev; what this all means for the heavyweight division and for boxing; and much more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses Saturday's Mikey Garcia-Adrien Broner fight, and how Mikey Garcia's lopsided unanimous decision victory, as well as the impressive TV ratings for this show, make it clear that he is a major star in boxing and a TV draw. We also discuss why boxing must be primarily viewed as a TV sport, some of the history of how Mikey Garcia arrived at this point in his career, several of the other important fights held this past weekend, what should be next for Mikey Garcia, and much more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with Steve Koepfer, the owner and head coach of New York Combat Sambo. He also serves as the Secretary General of USA Combat Wrestling. USA Combat Wrestling is the official governing body for combat wrestling in the U.S. and the U.S. delegate of the International Federation of Combat Wrestling (FICW). On Saturday, July 29, USA Combat Wrestling will be hosting its 2017 Nationals and U.S. Team Trials, along with the first annual FICW Pan American Open Championship. This event will take place at the Parkway West High School, 14653 Clayton Road, Chesterfield, Missouri 63011, near St. Louis. The winners at the U.S. Team Trials will represent the U.S. at the 2017 World Combat Wrestling Championships, October 21-22, in Honjo, Japan. We spoke with Steve Koepfer by phone Monday. Since USA Combat Wrestling was started in 2014, "It definitely is bringing a wide variety of people together under a ruleset that offers a little bit to everyone. So there's something familiar to everyone in there," he said. "You can win with wrestling if you're a wrestler, because unlike catch wrestling there are points, there's s spectrum of points for the quality of takedown. So if that's you game, you can win using that game. "You can win using submissions. If you're coming from a jiu-jitsu, BJJ background, we do give points for back takes and mounts, so that's something that they're familiar with. "So there's something that everybody will be familiar with. It's not a completely unfamiliar environment, which is nice. So it's less intimidating for people to try if they're looking to step outside the box of what they're used to." These rules have thus attracted a mixed group of athletes who have trained in various styles of wrestling, jiu-jitsu, grappling, sambo, judo, and MMA. Among the competitors in this year's tournament are Niko Koliastasis, who was a gold medalist at 90 kg at last year's combat wrestling worlds, and Aaron Butler, who was a silver medalist at 82 kg at last year's worlds. Team USA also won the team title at last year's worlds, and is currently ranked second in the world. We also discussed much more detail on the rules, how this event is a "dry run" for the 2018 worlds which will be held in the U.S., the structure of USA Combat Wrestling as a nonprofit national governing body for combat wrestling, the importance of video and live streaming in the growth of combat wrestling, and much, much more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with Rolles Gracie, president of the newly-formed KASAI Elite Grappling Championships. Rolles Gracie is a member of the legendary Gracie family and has competed in jiu-jitsu, grappling, MMA, and wrestling events, as well as running his own academy. Now he will also be in an executive capacity with this new organization, along with a team headed by Richard Byrne, KASAI's CEO, who is a financier, president of Benefit Street Partners, and a black belt in jiu-jitsu. Their basic plan is to run both professional and amateur jiu-jitsu events in New York City in both gi and no-gi divisions, beginning this fall. Their first amateur event is scheduled for October 21 at Manhattan's Baruch College, with a pro event planned for later in the fall. We spoke with Rolles Gracie by phone Thursday. As an athlete who has competed all over the world, he said he always was interested in creating his own organization. "Every time I was competing, I was paying attention to some things I liked about the tournament, some things I disliked about it," he said. "I'm nearly 40 years old now, 39, I still feel like a young kid, but I think it's time for me to start giving back to the sport that gave me so much. "And I'm going to basically put everything I can to fulfill the fighters', the athletes' needs. I'm not trying to do anything completely different than everybody. I just want to put a tournament, some professional events, that's going to treat the fighters with respect, with everything you deserve, tournaments running on time, and you name it." He stressed, "It's all about the fighters." While the amateur events will follow IBJJF rules, the professional events may have some innovative rules. While all submissions will be legal in the pro events, they are looking into having the athletes on a portion of the card choose their own rules, whether IBJJF, ADCC, or some other ruleset. All that will be worked out soon. We also discussed their plans for showing these events online and possibly on television as pay-per-views, their team which is experienced both in jiu-jitsu and sports and financial management, how they plan to feature "premier athletes" in the pro events, how they chose the name KASAI, and much, much more.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the escalating con game being used to promote the so-called Mayweather-McGregor "fight"; how they are cynically using racism, misogyny, and anti-LGBT bigotry to sell it to marks; the growing backlash against all this; and how this con game is severely damaging the brands and images of Floyd Mayweather, Conor McGregor, UFC, and Showtime.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the news about real boxing taking place the weekend of July 15, which has been mostly drowned out by the contrived propaganda in the 'media' about the August 26 circus fight. This Saturday, July 15, Chris Eubank Jr. fights Arthur Abraham in London to secure a spot in super middleweight tournament of the World Boxing Super Series. This will be shown on ITV pay-per-view in the U.K. In the U.S., the unbeaten Omar Figueroa Jr. returns from an extended injury layoff to face veteran Robert Guerrero in Uniondale, New York. This will be shown on PBC on Fox and Fox Deportes. There will also be an HBO tripleheader from the Forum in Inglewood, California. WBC super featherweight champ Miguel Berchelt will fight former champ Takashi Miura, WBA super featherweight champ Jezreel Corrales will fight Robinson Castellanos, and light heavyweight Joe Smith Jr. will face Sullivan Barrera. We also discuss the press conference announcing the September 23 fight between WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker and Hughie Fury, and the announcement by Hayemaker Ringstar, the joint venture between David Haye and promoter Richard Schaefer, of their TV rights deal with UKTV, the biggest multichannel broadcaster in the UK, for its entertainment channel Dave.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with Raul Ramirez of the Catch Wrestling Alliance. Our main topic was the update to the format of the 2017 Frank Gotch World Catch Wrestling Tournament. This event, which had its inaugural edition last year, has emerged as the biggest and most important tournament in the world in catch wrestling. This year's edition will take place Saturday, July 15, at Humboldt High School in Humboldt, Iowa. Humboldt is the hometown of the legendary wrestler Frank Gotch, who was world heavyweight champion in the early 1900s when professional wrestling was still a real sport. Unlike last year's event, this year there will be one open-weight bracket for all male wrestlers. This will also be a double-elimination tournament. We spoke with Raul Ramirez by phone Thursday. "We were getting a lot of interest from heavier weights," he said. "So, since last year we had four-man divisions, and because of the demand for the heavier weights, so then we just opened it up. So we want to try to let more people in, and since we're also getting most of the champions back from last year, they're all really tough guys, so we figured even a lighter weight champion would be willing to go up against a larger man. "So we're turning the format into a double-elimination, weightless division. It's like an absolute division. So we're going to have a champion of all the different -- regardless of weight." As of now, 13 wrestlers have signed up to compete, and have been divided up into two groups. The top bracket has six wrestlers while the bottom bracket has seven wrestlers. The top bracket has two opening round matches, with the winners each facing opponents who have been given byes to the next round. The first opening round match is Ned Morales vs. Jake Lahniers. The winner will take on last year's champion and a favorite to win this year, Travis Wiuff. The second opening round match will have James Bunn vs. Nicholas "The Giant" Caggia, with the winner facing Chris Morales. The lower bracket has three opening round matches. Wil Bunn will face Mark Benge in one, while Curran Jacobs, another of this year's favorites, will face Joshua Hightower, with the winners of these two opening round matches wrestling each other next. The third opening round match will have Sean Duckworth vs. Kody Konicki, with the winner facing Anthony Pacheck. We discussed who these wrestlers are and the matchups, more on the format of this tournament, plans for regional qualifying tournaments, plans for more seminars and educational work about catch wrestling, the worldwide growth of interest in catch wrestling in many places including Asia and Europe, plans to livestream this event on YouTube, and much, much more.
