While Matt is in Las Vegas for a very special UFC project, Megan Olivi joins Jim as today's special guest co-host on UFC Unfiltered!
After Jim and Megan bond over how not-handy they both are, Justin Gaethje joins the show. He opens up about his gardening hobby, pulls absolutely no punches when asked what he thinks of UFC Lightweight Champion Charles Oliveira and UFC Welterweight Kevin Lee, and gives his perspective of the long road that has lead him to a match against Michael Chandler on November 6th at Madison Square Garden at UFC 268.
Then, coach, owner and founder of Fortis MMA, Sayif Saud joins the show. He discusses how proud he is that Fortis MMA has had more fighters earn contracts on Dana White's Contender Series than any other academy in the world, reveals how Fortis MMA fighter Ryan Spann has dealt with hateful messages on social media ahead of his main event bout against Anthony Smith on September 18th, and reveals what he believes are necessary characteristics of a great coach.
Jim and Megan close the show with their favorite moments from UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs Till, including Derek Brunson's underdog submission win against Darren Till in the main event and Paddy Pimblett's breakout victory in his UFC debut.
