With Jim Norton out for the day, friend of the show Phoenix Carnevale reprises her role as a guest co-host alongside Matt Serra for an episode of UFC Unfiltered that features two guest callers in bantamweight Caolán Loughran and actor Louis Mandylor.
Set to make his UFC debut on this Saturday's card in Paris, Loughran explains how a last minute switch of opponent hasn't changed his all-business mindset going into a fight in hostile territory against French veteran Taylor Lapilus. The unbeaten Irish bantamweight then goes on to explain why he believes he'll be the next UFC champion to come out of the Cage Warriors promotion.
Shortly thereafter, Matt and Phoenix are joined by actor and director Louis Mandylor; a former professional boxer in his own right. The Australian actor surprises the two co-hosts with his vast UFC knowledge and ultimately weighs in on Saturday's card with his opinion on how French heavyweight Ciryl Gane can overcome his grappling deficiencies against a Sambo specialist like Serghei Spivac in the main event.
Fresh off the mid-August release of his action film '3 Days In Malay', Louis wraps up his interview by sharing how serving as director of the film featuring Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson sparked two newfound friendships with the retired UFC fighters.
Finally, Matt and Phoenix wrap up the show by looking at some of the fights on Saturday's card!
