Top Turtle MMA Podcast: Top 5 Promotions Outside The UFC, More

What a week it was in matchmaking. UFC 239, 240 and 241 all get crazy, big fights and the Top Turtle MMA Podcast on FloCombat's “Gumby” and Dave are dishing out helpings of their thoughts on all of them. Plus, they’ll dive into this past weekend’s activities with the slam heard 'round the world and more. 

They’ll also look at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 152 card in Rochester, New York. Not only will they break the card down, but they’ll be talking to two of the fighters on the card, Des Green and Ian Heinisch.
