On today’s episode of UFC Unfiltered, Matt and Jim are joined by UFC heavyweight Tai “Bam Bam” Tuivasa and women’s strawweight Emily Ducote ahead of their fights on Saturday night’s UFC on ESPN: Thompson vs. Holland event in Orlando.
Tuivasa draws laughter from Matt and Jim throughout the interview as the enigmatic Australian explains why his fight against fellow knockout artist Sergei Pavlovich is guaranteed to end with somebody laying on the canvas.
As Tuivasa explains why his come-forward style makes him confident hopping in the cage without watching film of any of his opponents, the man known for celebrating exciting wins by chugging beers through shoes talks about getting back in the title picture following his loss to Ciryl Gane.
Set to make her second appearance with the UFC this Saturday night, Emily Ducote hops on the show to preview her matchup with veteran Angela Hill as she assesses the landscape of the UFC’s stacked strawweight division.
Finally, Matt and Jim wrap up the show with predictions for some of the fights on the prelims and main card headlined by welterweights Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson and Kevin “Trailblazer” Holland.
