As one half of the hosting talent for the UFC’s official podcast, former welterweight champ Matt Serra is no stranger to offering a bit of comic relief to the twice-weekly “UFC Unfiltered.”
This time, it was just a little more unintentional than normal.
Serra and co-host Jim Norton were hoping to speak to UFC 216 headliner Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) ahead of his big fight with Kevin Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) for the UFC’s interim lightweight title. When they had trouble connecting, Norton stepped out for a quick bathroom break. While he was gone, “El Cucuy” called in to the show.
What followed was several cringeworthy moments where you’re just not quite sure if “The Terror” is in on the joke or not – making the resolution all the more entertaining. Check it out in the player above.
