Daniel Cormier is out to defend his heavyweight belt for the second time as he takes on former champion Stipe Miocic in a blockbuster rematch at UFC 241.
Cormier ended Miocic’s reign in 2018, before backing it up against Derrick Lewis in New York in November of last year.
He returns to the Octagon in Anaheim, California as he looks to strengthen his case as one of the greatest of all time.

Elsewhere on the card, Nate Diaz makes his long-awaited return to the UFC against Anthony Pettis in a welterweight bout, while a pair of 185-ers, Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa, are finally getting in the cage together.
And we’ve already seen one stunning upset, with UFC debutant Khama Worthy stopping rising star Devonte Smith in the first round.
The two former training partners were pitted against each other in a high octane lightweight showdown, with Worthy coming out on top as a monstrous left hook left Smith sprawled on the canvas.
In the first fight on the main card, Derek Brunson survived an early scare to outlast Ian Heinisch for the unanimous decision win, before Sodiq Yusuff continued his rise up the featherweight division with a first round TKO of Gabriel Benitez.
