Top Turtle MMA Podcast: Top 5 Dana White 'Never Will I Ever' Moments

We don't have to like it, but we have to discuss it. This week, we're talking about the fallout from the latest freak injury which canceled a Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson matchup at UFC 223 in Brooklyn, New York. 

Once we get through the heartbreak, we talk about who we like in Saturday's new main event between UFC featherweight champ Max Holloway, who's filled in on short notice, and Nurmagomedov.

And since we decided to schedule our Combat Countdowns to talk about the fight, which is now "never" gonna happen, we decided to count down our favorite things UFC President Dana White said would never happen.

After all of that and a quick preview of UFC 223, Kevin Lee breaks down what fighting Nurmagomedov would be like.
