    Megan Olivi joins Jim and Matt on today's special UFC 263 episode of UFC Unfiltered!

    First, Megan discusses her time with Leon Edwards while making the latest episode of the UFC's newest podcast, Becoming A Fighter (available right here on the UFC Unfiltered feed).

    Then, Leon joins the show ahead of his five round bout against Nate Diaz this Saturday at UFC 263. He talks about what has inspired him to share his inspiring life story on Becoming A Fighter, reveals his take on a potential boxing match between Tyron Woodley and Jake Paul, and discusses why being in a five round fight with Diaz plays to his advantage. 

    Then, after Matt struggles to tell Jim and Megan about his favorite moments from the new season of The Ultimate Fighter, Hakeem Dawodu calls in. He opens up about losing a close friend to addiction and his own past substance abuse issues, how learning Tae Kwon Do as his first martial art has shaped his career, and why he believes he deserves a top-10 opponent if he can hand Movsar Evloev his first defeat this Saturday at UFC 263.

    Jim, Matt, and Megan close out the show with their picks for UFC 263, including the highly anticipated headline bout between Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori.

    Jim and Matt are already excited for UFC 263 this Saturday -- hear why on today's episode of UFC Unfiltered!

    First, Matt breaks down the final seconds of Jairzinho Rozenstruik's first round finish of Augusto Sakai in this weekend's main event. They also go over what Marcin Tybura did so well in his win against Walt Harris in the co-main event. 

    Frank Camacho then makes his first appearance on UFC Unfiltered. He shares what inspired his 24-hour walk-a-thon to raise money for Guam's homeless population, how he went from an avid golfer to a professional fighter, and how he feels about everyone saying his upcoming bout against Matt Frevola at UFC 263 is a Fight of the Night contender. 

    Then, actor and pal of the show Aleks Paunovic joins the show. He talks about which fights at UFC 263 he is most looking forward to, offers tips to Matt on what it's like to work as a voiceover and motion-capture actor, and gives his honest critique of Sunday's bout between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul. 

    Lauren Murphy closes the show ahead of her title-eliminator bout against Joanne Calderwood at UFC 263. Besides being relieved to learn she can curse on the show, she goes over how her ground game has evolved over time as new BJJ techniques have become more commonplace, and how her son's stance on his mom being a professional fighter has evolved over time. Lauren’s husband and dogs make their UFC Unfiltered debut!

    Matt closes out the show by demanding Jim gets rid of his new handlebar mustache!

    Marcin Tybura, Jordan Leavitt, and former Bachelor Nick Viall

    Marcin Tybura, Jordan Leavitt, and former Bachelor Nick Viall

    It's Matt's birthday and Jim may have forgotten? Either way the guys hang out with two fighters, a reality television star and they have a birthday blast!

    In advance of his fight this Saturday, Jordan Leavitt makes his UFC Unfiltered debut to kick off the show. After him and Jim discuss their favorite Stephen King novels, Jordan explains how an aggressive Muay Thai teammate made him give Brazillian Jiu Jitsu a try, reacts to the criticism he faced when he celebrated after knocking out his opponent in his previous fight, and lets Matt know that the Mormon community is okay with him using medical marijuana. 

    Then, Marcin Tybura joins the show ahead of his co-main event bout against Walt Harris this Saturday at UFC Fight Night: Rozenstruik vs Sakai. He shares how growing up on a farm helped prepare him to be a fighter, why he believes Jon Jones will not be as successful at Heavyweight as he was at Light Heavyweight, and who he's rooting for in the main event of his card this Saturday between fellow heavyweights Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Augusto Sakai. 

    Former Bachelor star and podcaster Nick Viall is the last guest to join today's show. He gets real about the good and bad aspects of being the Bachelor, shares what it's like to act as himself in other shows, and goes into what life lessons he helps listeners with on his podcast. 

    To close the show, Matt reminds Jim that it's his birthday, and they both make predictions for this Saturday's main and co-main event.

    Jim and Matt are joined by UFC Hall of Famer and former UFC Light Heavyweight champion, Chuck Liddell!

    Chuck shares many great stories with the guys, including - stopping a bully from picking on a teenager in a mosh pit at Vans' Warped Tour, trying to convince Dana White to let him move up to Heavyweight (and what makes him wish he did), and his second mixed martial arts bout of his career: a one-round, 30-minute match in a pit in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  

    "The Iceman" also gives his take on topics ranging from Jon Jones' move to Heavyweight, how training has evolved since his days as a fighter, and why he'd like to act in more comedic roles.

    After Matt makes sure Jim didn't have more fun with guest co-hosts Forrest Griffin and Phoenix Carnevale, UFC Flyweight Andrea Lee joins the show. She shares why she believes having a crowd when facing Antonina Shevchenko at UFC 262 helped her win the fight, what it's like to put the roof back on your Jeep Wrangler when it suddenly starts to rain, and which Flyweight she thinks makes sense as her next opponent. 

    Then, comedian and director Aisha Tyler makes her UFC Unfiltered debut. She reveals what Dana White said to her after she saw Zhang Weili vs Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 248, shares what inspired her to begin her new cocktail company Courage and Stone, learns all about Tyron Woodley's music career and talks comedy shop with the guys including words of wisdom from Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle and what it is like to date a fellow comedian.

    Jim and Matt close the show recapping the action from UFC Fight Night: Font vs Garbrandt, including Carla Esparza's potentially title fight clinching performance win against Yan Xiaonan and Font's dominant unanimous decision win against the former champion.

What’s going on?

I love the banter back and forth with Matt & Jim. Matt is truly an authentic human being.lI love Matt’s relationships with Din and some of the other guys he fought. Now I have to ask…… what did your audience, who is tuning in for mma talk , do to you , that we get a friggen bachelor interview? Seriously? You guys need to stop bringing on completely useless guests on the show. NOONE CARES!!! STOP IT!

Matt Serra is a hidden gem

The guests range from UFC fighters, athletes from other sports, actors, comedians, entrepreneurs, and more. Jim Norton does a great job at keeping the show on course and has a very funny self deprecating sense of humor. Matt does a tremendous job at keeping you entertained. Matt Serra’s singing and constant silliness is the best part of the show. He is high energy, funny, and genuine.
I listen to all kind of podcasts from Rogan to dateline to Joey Diaz, to Conrad Thompson podcasts and a few sports podcasts but this is absolutely the podcast that I never get burnt out on and have listened to religiously since it came out so I can definitely say that it is my favorite podcast. I highly recommend it.
