Chael Sonnen, who once fought on an island, tells Ariel about his own experiences before the two friends discuss Sonnen's fascination with the TBD location of UFC 249, the UFC's harrowing back to its early days, a stacked lightweight division, and how Conor McGregor could somehow become the top contender in the welterweight division. Plus, John Kavanagh of SBG Ireland shares memories of McGregor's UFC debut -- seven years ago this week -- (1:23:04) and UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya explains why he wants to fight on the island, why he respects Dana White's efforts to keep UFC events going, why he vows to not repeat Jon Jones' mistakes and much more (54:52).
