Jim and Matt start the show by discussing their favorite performances from UFC 277, including Amanda Nunes' decision victory over Julianna Peña and Sergei Pavlovich's TKO win over Derrick Lewis.
Then, Alexandre Pantoja calls in after his submission victory against Alex Perez on Saturday. He shares how confident he felt in the locker room before his quick win against Perez, offers his thoughts on the interim flyweight title fight between Brandon Moreno and Kai Kara-France, and looks back on his wins against both Moreno and Kara-France while he was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter.
Next, NFL defensive tackle (and Amanda Nunes superfan) Gerald McCoy joins the show. After he sounds off on Nunes' doubters after her win against Peña at UFC 277, he shares what it was like to meet Dana White at the event, and geeks out with Matt about their favorite superhero movies and television shows.
After that, Hamdy Abdelwahab makes his UFC Unfiltered debut days after making his official UFC debut against Don'Tale Mayes on Saturday night. He explains why he accepted the fight with less than two weeks' notice, opens up about being the first Egyptian to fight in the UFC, and details how he transitioned from wrestling to mixed martial arts.
