The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to pay-per-view with UFC 241 on Saturday, August 17. The event — which takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California — packs a heavy punch thanks to a heavyweight title fight and the return of a fan favorite.
In the main event, heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier defends his belt against former titleholder Stipe Miocic, who is looking for revenge after suffering a first-round knockout loss to Cormier in their first meeting.
The co-main event, meanwhile, features a welterweight bout between former lightweight champ Anthony Pettis and the always exciting Nate Diaz, who is returning from a three-year layoff.
Ahead of the highly-anticipated pay-per-view event, UFC commentators John Gooden and Dan Hardy took the time to provide a tactical analysis of the contest with the tale of the tape and by taking an in-depth look at the highlights and careers of both fighters.
