UFC 241’s Phenomenal Fight-Card In Its Tantalising Entirety

UFC 241 is now just a week away and with that in mind, we thought it best to remind all of you of exactly how incredible a night it is looking set to be.

Who needs two title fights when you’ve got a card as stacked as this, eh?

Not only will Daniel Cormier be taking on Stipe Miocic in a scintillating rematch of their UFC 226 heavyweight title clash, but on top of that, the co-main event will feature the first appearance by the superstar Nate Diaz in nearly three years.

Facing Anthony Pettis over three rounds, Diaz will look to establish himself in the welterweight title-race with a win over the resurgent former lightweight champion.

If that wasn’t enough, the third marquee matchup of the night will see powerful middleweights collide in the form of Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa, a bout that will likely produce equal measures of violence and extreme human athleticism.

For those looking down the rest of the lineup for some possible gold, prospects like the unmissable Cory Sandhagen, the rising prospect Sodiq Yusuff, the submission-specialist Manny Bermudez, and surging future contender Ian Heinisch are just a few of the names worth tuning in for.

Take a look at the card in full below and let us know what you think.
