Undefeated UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya joins Ariel ahead of his long-awaited showdown with Paulo Costa at UFC 253. The Last Stylebender tells us why the “energies” between he and “The Eraser” don’t mix and delivers a message to the critics who still believe he is “all hype” (8:38). Then, UFC light heavyweight Jan Blachowicz reflects on his long journey to a title fight against Dominick Reyes in the UFC 253 co-main event. And just one day after dropping a team-high 29-points in Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals, Heat guard Goran Dragic talks Miami’s playoff run and drops MMA knowledge about next month’s Khabib Nurmagomedov-Justin Gaethje main event, his dream MMA fight, and much more. But first, Ariel sets the stage for Saturday’s stacked UFC Fight Night card, headlined by the long-awaited welterweight showdown between Colby Covington and Tyron Woodley.
