Manage episode 357198501 series 1040534
Fresh off the heels of Saturday night’s massive UFC 285 pay-per-view, Matt and Jim return for today’s episode of UFC Unfiltered with plenty to talk about alongside guest co-host John Hackleman.
The show begins with ‘Mattstradamus’ taking a Monday-morning victory lap after having accurately predicted everything about Jon Jones’ first-round submission win over Ciryl Gane for the vacant UFC heavyweight title.
Guest co-host John Hackleman then hops on the show to provide a coach’s perspective on Saturday night’s fights. The Hawaiian Kempo founder finds particular interest in the strategy successfully adopted by newly-crowned women’s flyweight champion Alexa Grasso in her upset win over long-reigning champion Valentina Shevchenko.
The guys are then joined by lightweight Nazim Sadykhov roughly two weeks removed from his Fight of the Night performance in his UFC debut against Evan Elder. The Serra-Longo trained fighter talks about his journey as a mixed martial artist which began in his native Azerbaijan before eventually moving to Brooklyn as a kid with his family.
