Eyada Taps Out



eYada Taps Out

Al Gattullo and Eddie Goldman
Eddie Goldman’s Internet talk show "No Holds Barred" is no more. It’s not just Eddie’s show, it was announced on Monday, July 9th that eYada would be ceasing operations. Though the company is not bankrupt, sources say money was definitely an issue. Getting advertisers to invest in "dot com" radio is a difficult thing at the current time. The market may have been a lot more friendly had the promise of Internet capable radios in cars and homes become a reality sooner.

Here is a statement from Eddie on the matter…



EYADA CLOSES ITS DOORS
by Eddie Goldman

MONTREAL, July 9 — I received the news while in upstate New York en route to Montreal for Tuesday’s Super Boxing Gala at the Molson Centre. The company on which I had hosted the "No Holds Barred" Internet talk show for 21 months, eYada.com, has closed down, effectively immediately. I was informed by my rugged producer, Al Gattullo, who had become a key supporter of the combat sports in this period. More details will follow as I get them, but for now, all of eYada.com is done.

Vanderlei Silva out of Pride 15
By Eduardo Alonso

Vanderlei Silva and Eduardo Alonso
      After all the speculation regarding Vanderlei Silva’s opponent for Pride 15, it turns out that the "Axe Murderer" will not be fighting in the event.
      Silva, who is still undefeated in Pride, with wins over the likes of Guy Mezger, Dan Henderson and Kazushi Sakuraba, has been training hard for Pride 15 since his win over Shungo Oyama in the last Pride. This show was originally supposed to feature Vanderlei’s rematch against Japanese superstar Kazushi Sakuraba, but due to Sakuraba’s condition, the fight was postponed until later this year, probably November. That left fans wondering who would face the Chute Boxe star at Pride 15. Many names were thrown around, but despite all the talk FCF was told yesterday that Vanderlei Silva will definitely not be fighting in Pride 15.
      Silva has been one of the most active fighters in Pride lately, and he deserves this break. However, DSE will bring Vanderlei to Japan, and he will be attending the show as a guest, and will be on hand to help out Chute Boxe teammate Assuerio Silva, who will be fighting Valentijn Overeem. After this well deserved break, Vanderlei Silva will be fighting at Pride 16, in September, against a yet to be named opponent.
