On today's episode of UFC Unfiltered, lightweight contender Michael Chandler returns as a guest co-host alongside Jim and Matt for a recap of the fights from Saturday night's UFC 283 card in Brazil — with a special bonus interview with bantamweight Rob Font. Matt explains why he was particularly impressed with Glover Teixeira's classy post-fight behavior after Jamahal Hill's UFC light heavyweight title win in front of Brazil's fervent MMA fans. As the guys react to Brandon Moreno recapturing the flyweight championship and closing out the UFC's first-ever quadrilogy in impressive fashion, Chandler explains why he thinks Deiveson Figueiredo is well-positioned to succeed in his future as a bantamweight with less weight to cut. After revisiting all five of Jim and Matt's predictions from Saturday night's card and explaining what stood out to them most, the guys welcome bantamweight Rob Font on to the show. With his next fight tentatively scheduled for April against fast-rising bantamweight Adrian Yanez, Font explains why a win over his tough 29-year-old opponent with a perfect 5-0 record in the UFC can provide a big boost for him. Chandler wraps up the show with a sales pitch for why Conor McGregor's highly-anticipated return to the UFC should be a blockbuster fight at welterweight against him this summer.
