On this special edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman discusses the latest series of dope cheating scandals in mixed martial arts, the pros and cons of the CBS Sportsline article by Zach Arnold called "Steroids, street drugs a problem in MMA, too" (http://www.sportsline.com/mmaboxing/story/10263227), and the need for all those who oppose doping to support the efforts of the World Anti-Doping Agency (http://www.wada-ama.org/) and push for universal adoption of its policies.
Also, NO HOLDS BARRED is available through iTunes at http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=150801513&s=143441.
