This week the Top Turtle Podcast talks with Mason Jones, Sarah Moras, and breaks down UFC Fight Island 7 and 8!
Mason Jones Interview (2:38)
Before making his UFC debut, Mason Jones stopped by to talk to Gumby about the long road that led him here. From being terrible at soccer and to starting judo at age 7, Mason Jones has been on a long journey all aimed at this very moment. He discussed becoming a double champion in Cage Warriors, the weight that carries, and how he sees fighters as products. At just 25 years old and 10-0, this is a prospect you’re going to want to get to know.

Shockwave and Gumby are back at it giving you what you need to know about the fight cards on Saturday and next Wednesday. They breakdown how they see some of the biggest fights starting with this weekend’s main event between Calvin Kattar and Max Holloway. They also delve into the fun stylistic pieces of Neil Magny and Michael Chiesa, which headlines a rare Wednesday card. Plus they give you a little insight on some other names you should keep an eye on further down on the card – including one sizable underdog who probably shouldn’t be.

The episode closes out with Sarah Moras joining Gumby to discuss the tough year she’s had. From an infected tooth, to dealing with fight delays, and figuring out how to handle crossing a border in a pandemic – Moras has been through a lot since the last time we’ve seen her in the cage. She shares what she misses most about her home back in Canada and what she’s looking forward to most upon returning. She discusses all of that, plus she gives you some insight into the preparations for Vanessa Melo and what you can expect from her this time out.
