On today’s episode of UFC Unfiltered, Jim Norton and Matt Serra react to the monumental news about UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ injury with guest caller and former UFC welterweight Ben Askren.   Jim and Matt begin the show by immediately diving into the ripple effect of Jon Jones’ torn pectoral tendon injury. With Sergei Pavlovich and Tom Aspinall agreeing to fight each other in an interim heavyweight title co-main event at UFC 295, Jim and Matt look into what another delay could mean for former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic as he looks to return to the cage for the first time since March of 2021.   Ben Askren joins the show shortly after, filling the guys in on how he balances his post-retirement life as a father and wrestling coach with interest in writing books and investing.   While listing all of the things keeping him busy without fighting, Askren names the one and only veteran fighter he’d willingly end his retirement for.
