Try not to be jealous of Joseph Benavidez's life as a newly retired fighter on today's episode of UFC Unfiltered!
First, Jim and Matt break down a few of their favorite fights from Saturday's card, UFC Fight Night: Smith vs Spann. They discuss Devin Clark's toughness in his loss to Ion Cutelaba and Hannah Goldy's come-from-behind armbar submission win against Emily Whitmire.
Then, comedian Dan Soder joins the show. Before Matt reveals to Dan that he was the inspiration for one of his bits when he had to do stand-up on Dana White: Lookin' for a Fight, Dan tells stories of his time with Stipe Miocic during his guest appearance on Dan’s show "Billions" and shares why he is so excited to see the Nick Diaz and Robbie Lawler rematch 17 years in the making at UFC 266 this Saturday.
Joseph Benavidez closes the show shortly after announcing his retirement from the UFC. He explains why the idea of making a spectacle of his retirement was uncomfortable at first, he talks about the career path he hopes to transition to, the reality shows he and his wife Megan Olivi most enjoy watching, and why crying at movies and television shows is nothing new for him.
