Jim and Matt definitely have one title challenger in Zhang Weili on today's show. But will Colby Covington ghost Jim and Matt? Find out on today's episode of UFC Unfiltered!

First, Zhang Weili joins the show ahead of her co-main event bout at UFC 268 in the world famous Madison Square Garden this Saturday night, where she'll challenge Rose Namajunas for the UFC Women's Strawweight belt.

After Zhang’s coach “Captain” Eric Albarracin crashes the interview and calls Zhang the greatest fighter he has ever coached, Zhang discusses what distractions contributed to her losing the belt to Namajunas in their last fight, how long it took her to rebound from the loss, changes to her approach in the re-match, and what she's most looking forward to while spending time in New York City.

Then, while Jim and Matt wait for Colby Covington to join the show ahead of his main event bout against Kamaru Usman for the UFC Welterweight title, they make their picks for the rest of the fights on the card, including the highly anticipated Lightweight showdown between Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler.
