Unfiltered Episode 512: Miesha Tate & Islam Makhachev

We have a former UFC Champion -- and according to Khabib Nurmagomedov, a future UFC Champion -- on today's episode of UFC Unfiltered!

Jim and Matt open today's show discussing the official announcement of Nick Diaz's return against Robbie Lawler in a five-round bout at UFC 266.

Then, former UFC women's bantamweight champion Miesha Tate joins the show. She makes clear that her return against Marion Reneau in Saturday's UFC on ESPN: Makhachev vs Moises co-main event is not a one-off, discusses how having children has impacted her mentality towards fighting, and shares why jumping into fight camp after nearly five years off was like riding a bicycle.

After Jim makes fun of the way he said 'buh-bye' to Miesha Tate and Matt asks about Jim's return to stand-up, Islam Makhachev joins the show ahead of his main event bout this Saturday at UFC on ESPN: Makhachev vs Moises from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. He details how much weight he still has to cut by weigh-ins on Friday, invites Matt to Dagestan to train, discusses why Dagestan produces such great wrestlers and details his motivation (much like Khabib’s) is for becoming a UFC Champion.

Jim and Matt close the show reliving the horror of seeing a water bug when they were together last Saturday for UFC Watch Party, reviewing television shows and movies they are watching, and previewing fights on this Saturday’s card.

    Matt Serra was defeated at tuf 4 finale for sure and he definitely was on gear through his career. He didn't earn the right to fight gsp and that fight is the main reason he even made a name for himself and got this much screen time. Just an average fighter with mediocre striking excessively loud and obnoxious really hard to stand anytime he corners someone. He definitely can't stop trying to make it about himself no wonder why that bitch aljo didn't want him in his corner

    Not a fan of Khabib and his knock-offs... Islam and the likes, they put on BORING fights, always trying to choke someone, they (like their idol 'scared and retired' Khabib) are zero on the feet where fans love to see the fight the most, Phuck Islam, Khabib and the rest of that useless bunch of NECK Hunters!

    The reason they are not motivated by money in Dagestan is probably because they are use to living off almost no money, so the money they get from the UFC is beyond anything they’ve experienced and it’s enough to put them in such a better situation...plus, they live a lot more minimal than Americans and material things don’t mean shit to them. I’ve never heard Khabib brag about any of his belongings or things he’s bought. What motivates them is making their family, friends, and country proud, period.
