    With the ever changing status and uncertainty of UFC 249, we decided to come at you with some fresh new content ideas for this week. Rather than talking about private islands, secret transportation, or any other spy movie sounding stuff, we invited 3 media members to do a fantasy draft. Kristen King, Benny Abrigo, Drake Riggs, and our own Gumby Vreeland draft 5 rounds of fighters with one or less UFC fights. Listen in to see who each person picked and vote on who won on our social media accounts. Then one of those picks (although we won’t say who) stops by. Manel Kape talks about his move to the UFC and why he’s headed to the flyweight division instead of bantamweight.
