What holiday? Nothing's stopping Jim and Matt from recapping all the action from this weekend's UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs Sakai!

First, the guys speak with Jan Blachowicz before he takes on Dominick Reyes for the Light Heavyweight belt at UFC 253 on September 26th. He shares his training techniques in the Polish mountains, how one BJJ tournament in his teens made him abandon his pursuit of a career in the military, and his thoughts on why Jon Jones decided to move up to Heavyweight.

Then, UFC commentator John Gooden calls in to talk about Leon Edwards' little known journey to success, how Edwards can leverage that story for a fight against Jorge Masvidal, and what went down in the Fight Island arena when Dan Hardy and Herb Dean got into it after an apparent late stoppage.

Finally, Jim asks Matt about an iconic moment from his season of The Ultimate Fighter, and they recap the performances at UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs Sakai.
