Top Turtle MMA: Ranking The Top 5 Greatest Heavyweights Of All Time

Daniel Cormier: The Champion (Trailer)

It’s been a little while since we’ve seen Chris Leben, but we’re about to see him throw down in a brand new way. We chat with him about how he's preparing to fight with no gloves on at World Bare Knuckle Fight Federation (WBKFF) and what he thinks of Phil Baroni. 

Plus, you all spoke and we listened. We took your suggestions for the heavyweight GOAT and put them into this week’s Combat Countdown. Is it a Pride legend at the top or is it a modern UFC fighter?

And if that isn’t enough for you all, we’re looking at all things MMA. From Floyd Mayweather in Rizin (editor's note: LOL) to the death of the flyweights to UFC Fight Night 139 in Denver and everything in between, we’ve got your news for the week covered.
