Top Turtle MMA Podcast: Featuring Paddy Pimblett + Christian Edwards

There may be no UFC card this weekend, but the boys from Top Turtle MMA never sleep.

This week they’re taking you down memory lane to talk about retro fight cards. Each host has selected a low key fight card that they think deserves more attention and has held up against the test of time. Be sure to head on over to their Twitter to vote on which one was better. 

Plus, ‘Gumby’ has a chat with Bellator prospect Christian Edwards fresh off of his viral knockout at Bellator 233. Edwards shares thoughts about his future with Bellator as well as how he wound up at Jackson-Wink MMA. 

Then Paddy Pimblett stops by before his bout with Joe Gianetti. He talks about how that matchup came around, and how he feels Gianetti might be an easier bout than originally planned for.
