    Episode 207: Casey Kenney, Macy Chiasson, and UFC Rio Rancho Preview

    UFC Rio Rancho is the overlooked card of the year and Top Turtle MMA is getting you in the know about it.

    We’re kicking off, as always, with some fighter interviews. First Casey Kenney stops by to discuss the state of the bantamweight division and being an underdog despite being ranked. Then Macy Chiasson calls in and discusses getting treated like “one of the boys” at Fortis MMA and how that’s made her bigger and stronger ahead of her fight.

    Plus, what would a preview episode be without “Fights, Dogs, and Parlays”? Let Gumby and Dave take you through the best plays throughout this card and add a bit more cash to your wallet.

    Episode 204: Curtis Blaydes, Nate Landwehr, Justine Kish and UFC Raleigh

    So the hoopla surrounding UFC 246 is over, but we’re back this week with another loaded show.

    Gumby had a busy week this week, with 3 different fighters from UFC in Raleigh, North Carolina stopping by for a chat. First, headliner Curtis Blaydes stops by to talk about the state of the heavyweight division and Daniel Cormier. Then the always entertaining Nate Landwehr discusses being a big shot over in Russia, and the impact he plans on making in the cage and on the mic. Finally, Justine Kish discusses her time away from the cage and what changes we can expect to see in her game.

    All that, plus we’re back with another round of Fights, Dogs, and Parlays. Last week, both of our underdogs and both of our parlays hit. There’s no good reason not to tune in and get this advice this week.
