On today’s episode of UFC Unfiltered, longtime friend of the show Phoenix Carnevale returns alongside Matt and Jim as a guest co-host to offer up her takes on some of the latest fight announcements and discuss Saturday night’s UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Spivac card.
Joining first as a guest caller is 15th-ranked UFC heavyweight Blagoy Ivanov, who reflects on how his near-death experience from a stabbing that hospitalized him for three months has shaped him into the mentally tough fighter he is today.
Ivanov wraps up his interview by previewing his matchup with 10th-ranked heavyweight Marcin Tybura.
The crew are then joined by their second heavyweight caller of the day, 12th-ranked Serghei Spivac, who alongside his translator discusses what a win against popular heavyweight contender Derrick Lewis can do for his career.
Finally, Matt and Jim cap off the show by bouncing off some upcoming fights with Phoenix, who shares her thoughts on how former featherweight champion Max Holloway would stack up in a rumored matchup against Arnold Allen.
