The Biebs has been sharing snippets of their sessions, but Conan on TBS obtained the "exclusive" (read: fake) footage from inside the ring.

Scientists examined ancient DNA extracted from 13 individuals in archaeological burial sites unearthed during highway construction in the Great Hungarian Plain in Central Europe. This crossroads…
