UFC 241: The Main Event

Daniel "DC" Cormier (22-1) may be the best competitor in the sport of MMA, but with a big performance at UFC 241 he could crossover to mainstream stardom. Cormier is the #1 ranked pound for pound fighter in the UFC, and the current UFC Heavyweight champion. In his past, he has also been an All-American collegiate wrestler, medal-winner in amaetur wrestling, and MMA Heavyweight Champ in both Strikeforce and King of the Cage promotions.

Cormier won the UFC Heavyweight title from Stipe Miocic in July 2018, placing him in the elite two-division champion club with some of the all time greats, including current two-division champ Amanda Nunes. Cormier's only career loss has been to Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones in a 2015 decision. Since that fight, Jones has had multiple suspensions, including one for doping that wiped out a fight with Cormier. Meanwhile "DC" defeated all other challengers, including big names like Anderson Silva and Derrick Lewis. Cormier is ready for his close up.

Stipe Miocic (18-3) has spent a lot of time out of the ring, presumably thinking about his loss to Cormier and planning his revenge. Miocic hasn't fought since losing the belt to "DC" over a year ago. He told ESPN's Mike Greenberg on "Get Up!" that he's been finding and fixing his flaws that Cormier exploited in the last fight.

Miocic held the Heavyweight belt for over two years before losing to Cormier in 2018. One of the reasons he was so hard to defeat is his unique frame as a heavyweight. Miocic is 6' 4", so he is much taller than the 5' 11" Cormier, and he has a much longer reach than most of his foes. To use that advantage, he will have to avoid the clinches and grapples of wrestlers like Cormier.

Watch the first super-fight between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic from UFC 226 just over one year ago.

UFC 241 Fight Card

UFC 241 also features an intriguing Welterweight fight between Anthony "Showtime" Pettis (22-8) and Nate Diaz (20-11). It has been three years since Nate Diaz stepped into the octagon to fight, when in August of 2016 he lost a rematch to legend Conor McGregor by majority decision. That fight was the headline match of UFC 202, and since then Diaz has been offered fights but none have made it onto a fight card. Now he faces Anthony Pettis, a former Lightweight champion who has fallen far. Over the last three years, Pettis is 3-3, alternating wins and losses, making it hard for him to climb back into a title shot. Will a win against Diaz be enough to push him back up?
