We have the champ and a 'Jedi' ahead of UFC 266 this Saturday on today's episode of UFC Unfiltered!
First, Alexander Volkanovski joins Jim and Matt before he defends his Featherweight belt against Brian Ortega in the main event of UFC 266 this Saturday in Las Vegas. After some members of his crew crash the interview and break balls with Matt Serra, "The Great" opens up about why Ortega's most recent win against The Korean Zombie was not as impressive as others have claimed, training with BJJ black belt Craig Jones, how he kept a level head throughout two training camps and a COVID-19 diagnosis and much more.
Then, Matthew Semelsberger calls in to the show before his bout against Martin Sano Jr. this Saturday at UFC 266. He reveals the origin of his nickname "Semi the Jedi", explains Dungeons and Dragons to Jim and Matt, and reveals why he dropped out of college about 12 credits shy of graduating to pursue a career in mixed martial arts.
Jim and Matt close the show with their picks for UFC 266, including Valentina Shevchenko's latest title defense against Lauren Murphy in the co-main event and the rematch 17 years in the making between Robbie Lawler and Nick Diaz.
