The UFC is back in Southern California this week, and the heavyweight title is on the line in a main-event rematch.
In the UFC 241 headliner, champion Daniel Cormier (22-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC) takes on the man he took the belt from a little more than a year ago, Stipe Miocic (18-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC). And in the co-feature, Nate Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC) returns for the first time in nearly three years when he meets former lightweight champ Anthony Pettis (22-8 MMA, 9-7 UFC) in a welterweight fight.
