On August 17th, UFC 241 takes center stage in Anaheim, California as Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic face off for the UFC heavyweight title bout.
Following the fight, there will be a lineup of bouts including Anthony Pettis against Nate Diaz in a welterweight bout, along with Yoel Romero versus Paulo Costa.
