Top Turtle MMA Podcast: Featuring Jake Matthews + Yorgan De Castro

UFC 243 has one of the most anticipated main events in some time, but we’re breaking down all kinds of things on the card. 

 

Hot on the heels of our success last week, we’re back with the newest edition of 3 Fight, A Parlay and A Dog. If you enjoy taking out Vegas, we have some thoughts on UFC 243 you should hear.

Plus, we’re sitting down with a couple of the fighters on the card. First Jake Matthews talks about the motivation he finds in his new daughter and his renewed focus for this fight. Then Yorgan De Castro gives us the lowdown on what could be the most entertaining fight on the card. He’s ready to go toe-to-toe with bombs until someone falls. 

You won’t want to miss that fight, and you won’t want to miss this episode.

Alexander Volkanovski: "I'm One of The Greatest 145ers Of All Time"

You might imagine that a fighter in his first title fight, his first UFC fight scheduled for 5 round even, might find himself with a bit of pressure on his shoulders. In fact, first time challengers have from time to time remarked that having additional media obligations has made their first shot all the more difficult. However, Alexander Volkanovski feels right at home.

Cody Stamann: No Respect For Champ Cejudo

Since capturing his fight title, and even more so after winning his second, Henry Cejudo has turned up the theatrics. From calling for a fight with Valentina Shevchenko to cringe-worthy videos promoting himself as “Triple C”, his push to get more attention for himself has certainly been successful.

Dominick Reyes Is Ready For Jon Jones

After 27 fights by which he is functionally still undefeated (yes, I realize he has a loss on his record), we’ve heard pretty much everything when it comes to why this challenger will be the one. Especially since he’s become champ, it seems like every challenger that pops up has something that fans who want to see Jones go down latch on to and others write off.
