Top Turtle MMA Podcast: UFC 235 Extravaganza

For the biggest pay-per-view of the year to-date, we bring you one of our most stacked episodes of the year. We kick it all off by discussing the welterweight title fight between Tyron Woodley and Kamaru Usman with none other than American Top Team's Din Thomas. He explains why Usman won't be able to handle Woodley's smoke and something fairly shocking about the making of the matchup.

We're also chatting with Macy Chiasson and Ismail Naurdiev. Naurdiev recaps his most recent win and why you haven't seen the best of him yet. Meanwhile, Chiasson details her party plans for after her fight this weekend.

Plus what would any episode be without the Combat Countdown? We counted down the top 5 regional based nicknames. No, much to "Shockwave" Dave's chagrin, there is no New York City Badass. Check to see who topped him.
