    Towards the end of the interview Conor questions why Ariel isnt there with them and covering the event directly.

    Ariel starts talking about restrictions and that he wanted to go then quickly changes subject. Im not buying it. He hasnt wanted to cover an event in person because of the virus.

    Didnt he mention on one of his podcast he hasnt left his house in months lol?

    Happens around 34 minutes in

    That really isnt that big of a deal. White lie at best.

    I'd stay indoors if I had that nose too, he'd catch it miles away

    Be real. We all do that. Ive mastered how to avoid events i don’t want to go to. Not feeling well is the easiest one. Kid/spouse is sick. Wife is out of town gotta watch the kids. Have a lot of work to get done. Now covid has given me a lot more reasons. Some legit some not.

    There would really just be nothing for him to do on Fight Island. Plus, I don't think he would even have enough time to quarantine at this point (one week out). He'd probably end up watching the event from his hotel room.

    Brett Okamoto is the one ESPN has covering the events on Fight Island, so all Ariel would do is interview Conor one time and then leave.

    I don't know about lying, but he does what many people do in a scenario like that, which is to immediately switch the subject away.

    Him wanting to go but using covid/travel restrictions as an excuse to not is perfectly fine imo, I don't see the lie or problem.
