Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has set up shop inside the fighter hotel for the early and official weigh ins, featuring the cast of tomorrow night’s (Sat., Aug. 17, 2019) UFC 241 pay-per-view (PPV) event, held inside nearby Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
Leading the charge will be the heavyweight rematch between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic. “DC” captured the crown at UFC 226 last summer and as you might expect, Miocic wants to get it back in the most violent way possible.
In the UFC 241 co-headliner, former lightweight standouts Anthony Pettis and Nate Diaz collide in what is expected to be a battle of elite strikers. In addition, middleweight muscleheads Paulo Costa and Yoel Romero will go to war for a spot in the 185-pound title chase.
