Top Turtle MMA Podcast: Top 5 'The Ultimate Fighter' Contestants, More

With two fight cards packing this weekend with action—UFC Fight Night 142 in Adelaide and The Ultimate Fighter 28 Finale—we decided to pack the Top Turtle MMA Podcast as well. 

We start it all off by talking with Jimmy Crute prior to his UFC Adelaide showdown vs. Paul Craig. In a division mostly consumed with older fighters, this 22-year-old Australian looks to make his name. We talk about that fight and what it was like to hear kind words from his new boss. 

Then, we’re running down the news of the week. A once-hot prospect is out of the UFC and another is fighting a legend. Hear our take on both situations. 

In honor of The Ultimate Fighter 28 Finale this Friday, we’re breaking down the best five to ever live in the TUF house. Plus, we’re breaking down that Friday fight card along with Saturday’s offering in Adelaide. It’s a big weekend and we’ve got you covered.
