Foul-mouthed comedian Jim Norton and former UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra are now co-hosts of a brand-new UFC podcast.

Let that sink in for a moment.

The world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion recently announced its partnership with DGital Media to launch an exclusive on-demand audio series titled "UFC Unfiltered with Jim Norton and Matt Serra," scheduled to debut on Tuesday, June 21, featuring two episodes per week (Tuesday and Thursday, on-demand).

The podcast will be available on, iTunes, GooglePlay, Spotify, Stitcher, and TuneIn, just to name a few.

"We are excited to partner with DGital Media and launch our new show for fight fans around the world," UFC Executive Vice President of Operations & Production Craig Borsari said. "This podcast will serve as a new avenue for our fans to consume exclusive audio content at their convenience. We feel that Jim and Matt will provide both insightful fight analysis along with plenty of stories and observations surrounding UFC, sports and topics of general interest."

Norton is perhaps best known for his role on the Opie & Anthony radio show, which eventually imploded under the weight of its own success. But to his credit, Norton is also an accomplished comedian, author, tranny lover, and devoted Black Sabbath fan.

Serra, meanwhile, is best known for being Matt Serra.

I'm in.
