Here’s how you can watch.
- Date: Saturday, August 17

- TV: Prelims on ESPN
- Live Stream: Early Prelims and Main Card on ESPN+
UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier may be the second best fighter in MMA history behind Jon Jones, the only man to defeat him. Cormier punched is ticket to MMA immortality when he scored a stunning 1st-round KO victory over Stipe Miocic in July 2018 at UFC 226.
Cormier came back and successfully defended the title in November 2018 against Derrick Lewis. It’s time for Miocic to get his rematch, and oddsmakers like Cormier to win again. Per MyBookie, Cormier is a slim -140 favorite and Miocic is a +110 underdog. Miocic wants to regain his belt and Cormier is looking to confirm his superiority over one of the best heavyweights in history.
In the co-main event, Nate Diaz returns to the Octagon. He’ll take on the always exciting Anthony “Showtime” Pettis. While this fight isn’t for a title, it is easily still a huge draw for MMA fans. Also, the spectacular Yoel Romero is back in the Octagon to take on rising middleweight star Paulo Costa.
What Else Will Be On?
Top Rank Boxing has a smaller boxing show on ESPN. WBO Super Bantamweight Champion Emmanuel Navarette will defend his title against Francisco De Vaca. This main card begins the same time as the UFC show. With this less than noteworthy event posing most of the competition for viewing amongst the combat sports community, it is safe to say UFC 241 should control this space on Saturday.
