Top Turtle MMA Podcast: With Gregor Gillespie & Liz Carmouche

UFC Uruguay is this weekend and we have the goodies for you. Not only are we breaking down the best fights on the card, but we’re talking with title challenger Liz Carmouche about her second bid for the title. She talks about the changes she’s made since her first bid and where her mind is at now. 

And if that doesn’t hype you up enough, we also have the debut of MMA Over/Under, where Shockwave Dave and “Gumby” give each other statistical over/unders and watch as the other misses terribly. 

Still not enough content for you? We have Gregor Gillespie breaking down his mindset about opponents. Ever wonder why he doesn’t really call fighters out? This interview may help you understand.
