No Holds Barred: Rose Gracie and Gracie Worlds; ONE FC

No Holds Barred: Rose Gracie and Gracie Worlds; ONE FC Review

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with
Rose Gracie about the submission-only grappling event, the Gracie
Worlds ( And we review the historic
ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors card, which took place June 23 at the
Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Gracie Worlds will take place at TheFitExpo (http:// on Saturday, July 14, and Sunday, July 15,
at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. The
gi tournament, including superfights, is on July 14, while the no-gi
tournament, also including superfights, is on July 15. In both these
tournaments, the only way to win is by submission, as there are no
judges or points scored. If there is no submission, neither competitor
advances. The adult division matches have 15-minute time limits, while
in the finals there is no time limit.

We spoke with Rose Gracie by phone Wednesday about this event and why
these rules, which she says come from her late grandfather, Helio
Gracie, are needed to revitalize jiu-jitsu. In her event, she said in
this interview. "100 percent of the outcome of the matches [is] in the
hands of the competitor."

In addition, we discussed the need for drug-testing in jiu-jitsu and
grappling, the growing media coverage of her tournaments, the real
relation between jiu-jitsu and MMA, and more.

We open this edition of the show with a review of the fights on the
ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors card, and comment on some of the lessons
from this impressive event. The next ONE FC card will take place
August 31 in the historic Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, the
Philippines, in which the 1975 "Thrilla in Manila" between Muhammad
Ali and Joe Frazier took place.

Also, we offer a few more comments on the June 21 M-1 Global card in
St. Petersburg, Russia, and what might be the best post ever about
combat sports posted on Facebook.
