On this special edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, the second so far this week, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Kid Peligro, senior editor of the ADCC News (http://www2.adcombat.com) and the worldwide advisor to the Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC).
This coming weekend, May 5 and 6, the 2007 ADCC Submission Fighting World Championships will take place at the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, New Jersey. We discuss with Kid Peligro many aspects of this event, including its background and history, who are some of the top competitors this year, the rules, the Superfight between Roger Gracie and John Olav Einemo, the significance of this event, its role in both combat sports in general and submission wrestling in particular, and more.
