The UFC returns to Anaheim, Calif., for the first time in more than two years next month with UFC 241, which features a heavyweight title rematch atop the bill, along with several notable fights scheduled for the undercard. UFC 241 takes place Aug. 17 at Honda Center with a main card that airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+/UFC Fight Pass. In the main event, champion Daniel Cormier (22-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC) will attempt to prove his superiority over Stipe Miocic (18-3 MMA, 11-2 UFC) once and for all when the pair do a rematch of a fight Cormier won by first-round knockout last summer. The co-headliner will see former champ Anthony Pettis (22-8 MMA, 9-7 UFC) welcome Nate Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC) back to the octagon at welterweight, while the featured contest sees Yoel Romero (13-3 MMA, 9-2 UFC) and Paulo Costa (12-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) finally clash at middleweight after multiple failed bookings.
