    On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with the ex-pugilist, lifelong martial artist, former UFC and Battlecade Extreme Fighting matchmaker, TV commentator, and our senior correspondent, John Perretti.

    With the 20th anniversary of the formation of the UFC, a lot of rubbish is being put out. We spoke with John Perretti by phone Tuesday to counter that.

    "20 years ago something occurred," he said. "A little kid in his pajamas got to wrestle a bunch of boneheads and beat them and create a sport. At the same time, Extreme Fighting was creating a different kind of sport. And then the metamorphosis of Extreme Fighting and the UFC occurred. How that happened, I guess, I was there. I remember what happened. Others do not."

    He continued, "I really don’t have anything to celebrate about what has occurred after my departure - my intentional departure, let me state, again, for the record."

    We discussed how most of the people writing about and commenting on MMA history "have no c" name="DESCRIPTION

  5. Errol Morris Turns His Lens On Donald Rumsfeld

    Donald Rumsfeld stood in the center of turmoil in George W. Bush’s White House, as Secretary of Defense when the Pentagon was hit on 9/11, and through the two wars that followed. Now one of America’s greatest film-makers, Errol Morris, has turned his camera on Rumsfeld – as he did years earlier on Vietnam-era Defense Secretary Robert McNamara. The result is “The Unknown Known,” a documentary that looks “from the inside out,” as Errol Morris puts it, on the mistakes and misjudgments that made the Iraq War the most polarizing in American history. This hour On Point: Errol Morris on Donald Rumsfeld.
