A Day in Dublin With Conor McGregor
“On July 17, 2014, we took a stroll around Dublin with Conor McGregor. This interview was shot two days before McGregor’s return fight in Dublin versus Diego Brandao.
In the interview, McGregor talks about his rise in popularity, his humble beginnings, how his career almost never was, his future plans, and much more.”
A Day in Philadelphia with Eddie Alvarez
“UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez hails from Kensington, one of the toughest neighborhoods in Philadelphia. We recently visited the new champ to learn more about his humble, and sometimes dangerous, beginnings, his rise in MMA, becoming champion and a possible showdown with Conor McGregor.”
In August 2016, Ariel then kept a long time promise and spent a day in Philadelphia with Eddie Alvarez.
