On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman speaks with mixed martial arts fight manager Phyllis Lee (http://www.fightnet.net/), who is known as the First Lady of NHB (no-holds-barred fighting, now known as mixed martial arts).
We discuss the September 1 Art of War 3 card (http://www.artofwarlive.com), held in Dallas, Texas, and shown on pay-per-view television. Three fighters on that card are managed by Phyllis: Ron Waterman, Lana Stefanac, and Thomas Schulte. We also touch on UFC 75 and discuss the direction mixed martial arts and its media ought to take.
