Unfiltered: Michael Chiesa, Vicente Luque, and Karolina Kowalkiewicz
Michael Chiesa, Vicente Luque, and Karolina Kowalkiewicz Join The Show
Aug. 5, 2021
We have packed episode of UFC Unfiltered ahead of UFC 265 this Saturday in Houston, Texas!
First, Karolina Kowalkiewicz joins UFC Unfiltered for the first time ahead of her bout against Jessica Penne this weekend. She shares how her recent eye surgery and time off have improved her mentality heading into her fight with Penne, why her dream is to host a travel show someday, and what it was like to train with fellow Polish fighter and fthe ormer UFC Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk during fight camp.
After Jim and Matt make their picks for the main event of UFC 265, the Interim Heavyweight title fight between Derrick Lewis and Ciryl Gane, Michael Chiesa calls in before his main event bout against Vicente Luque on Saturday. He talks about the behind-the-scenes outtakes with Justin Gaethje from his first Hollywood commercial shoot, reveals why the most nervous he's ever been before a fight was in the lead up to his bout against Diego Sanchez, and makes his case for why Luque has never faced a fighter like him.
Chiesa's opponent, Vicente Luque, is the last guest to join today's show. He explains why he views Chiesa as a test before a potential bout against current Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman, how training with Usman in the past has prepared him for his fight against Chiesa, and why he thinks his grappling will be on-point on Saturday.
Jim and Matt close the show with the rest of their picks for UFC 265, including the co-main event between Bantamweights Jose Aldo and Pedro Munhoz and a Strawweight showdown between Angela Hill and Tecia Torres.
