On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman offers a commentary on the apparent failure of the New York legislature to re-legalize mixed martial arts, the need for changes in the New York bill to regulate MMA, the triumphant return to wrestling of 2004 Olympic champion Cael Sanderson at the U.S. World Team Trials, and the implications of the new deal between the International Olympic Committee and NBC as well as the ongoing scandals in world football (soccer) involving their international governing body FIFA for the combat sports.
