Make sure to check out today's episode of UFC Unfiltered ahead of this Saturday's Heavyweight showdown between Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis!

After Jim reveals what he's leaving Matt in his will, "Violent Bob Ross" Luis Pena joins the show. He dives into his feelings about USADA essentially eliminating marijuana as a banned substance after getting suspended for using it last year, how he's been staying prepared for a short-notice matchup, and his beef with opponent Drakkar Klose dating back to their pre-UFC days.

Then, Dana White Contender Series alum Phillip “Megatron” Hawes joins Jim and Matt for his UFC Unfiltered debut. The guys learn where Phillip is from, why he moved to Florida to train, what it is like being teammates with Gilbert Burns and why having a wrestling background makes you gritty as ____. Phillip also talks about how most of his opponents don’t like being hit, and how he does not mind it. After that Matt tries (and fails) to get Phillip to sing West Side Story with him, Phillip details his arduous journey to get into the UFC and recommends some motivational books and movies.

Jim and Matt close the show with their picks for UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs Lewis this Saturday and Matt may or may not continue singing showtunes?!?
