Top Turtle MMA: Top 5 Fighters We Wish Had Won UFC Gold

To kick off this week's Top Turtle MMA Podcast on FloCombat, we spoke with Sodiq Yusuff fresh off his big win over Suman Mokhtarian at UFC Fight Night 142 in Adelaide, Australia. 

He gives us a little insight to what he's doing with the money and also tells us when we can expect to see him again.

Then we chat with Devin Clark about preparing alongside Jon Jones for his UFC 231 showdown vs. Aleksandar Rakic. Plus we talk all things Jackson-Wink MMA and break down his plan to get to the top of the 205-pound mountain.

And with Christmas right around the corner, we put together our wish lists of people we wish won a title—or in Gumby's case, guys he wish ruined history.

Then we close up shop by bringing on Jason Schandl (@NumbersMMA) to look inside the stats behind Saturday's big fights. He's got some dogs to look out for and a hot take on one of the title fights.
