Jonathan Martinez Interview (1:23)

Kicking off this week’s edition of TTP is an interview with Jonathan Martinez. “The Dragon” chats with Gumby about his youth and moving from California to Texas, where he got into more than a couple scraps. He talked about how often he was street fighting as a child and how he had his best friends match make fights for him. Plus, he also talks about how all of that street fighting led to a career in MMA. The interview closes out with plenty of discussion about his upcoming bout at UFC Vegas 62 with Cub Swanson.

Combat Countdown: Most Forgotten Title Reigns (17:59)

With the UFC taking their second off week in the last three, the guys have to get creative. So they are bringing Combat Countdown back and they’ll be counting down the most forgotten title reigns in UFC history. Who held the title in such an uneventful way that we can’t barely remember it? Some of these were forgotten even by the hosts, so you’ll probably need this refresher. So come remember some guys, and gals, with this trip down memory lane.

Mana Martinez Interview (29:12)

Closing out this week’s edition of TTP is an interview with Mana Martinez. He chats with Gumby about his upcoming bout with Brandon Davis and all of the ways that fight could go. He also talks about growing from losses like his most recent bout with Ronnie Lawrenece. That’s not all the growth they’re talking about. Gumby digs back into Mana Martinez to ask him about his amateur run that included four straight first round armbars. We had to know how that happened and how he then turned into the sharp striker that we see today. Luckily for us, Mana was more than happy to share the tale with us.
