Top Turtle MMA Podcast: Featuring Brian Kelleher + Carlos Diego Ferreira

We keep the UFC 246 content coming this week with even more interviews and even more outlook on the year ahead. 

First, Gumby sits down with Brian Kelleher ahead of his matchup with Ode Osbourne. They discuss Kelleher’s mindset coming off a tough pair of losses and how a year off helped him get to a better place. Then Carlos Diego Ferreira stops by to discuss his main card bout with Anthony Pettis. Sure to be a barnburner, Ferreira expects excitement and for this to lead to big things in to 2020. 

Then we’re continuing tradition and making picks for which fighters will keep their titles in the new year. Last year only three fighters did; see if our hosts have more or less faith in the new crop of champions.
