Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is all set to stage UFC 241: “Cormier vs Miocic 2,” which goes down this Saturday night (Aug. 17, 2019) inside Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. In the main event, Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier will defend his title against Stipe Miocic, the same man he took the belt from a year ago to become champ-champ.
In the co-headlining act, Anthony Pettis will battle Nate Diaz at 170 pounds. Nate was a no-show during media day and was unavailable to do his first staredown with “Showtime.” However, he and his joint were in full effect during open workouts.
In another intriguing fight, Yoel Romero will face Paulo Costa in a Middleweight bout that has been teased several times before, but never came to fruition.
Before all of the action goes down, take a look at how all of the players get ready during fight week thanks to “Embedded.”
