UFC 241 fight card -- Daniel Cormier vs. Stipe Miocic: Start time, prelims, PPV price, complete guide, odds
Everything you need to know ahead of the rematch from Anaheim, California, on Saturday night
UFC fight cards don't get much bigger than this, and on Saturday night from Anaheim, California, the heavyweight title is back on the line. Emanating from the Honda Center, Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic will lock horns once again inside the Octagon in a title rematch fans have been waiting to see.
Cormier ended Miocic reign at heavyweight with a shocking first-round knockout in July 2018 and has maintained the strap with one defense against Derrick Lewis in November 2018. He has teased retirement for some time and there's a sense any fight could be the last time fans see "DC" compete in the Octagon, though a possible trilogy fight with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones could always bait him back for one last stand.

In the co-main event, two of the most beloved figures in UFC history square off in what they are calling a grudge match. Nate Diaz returns to the Octagon from a three-year layoff following a majority decision loss to Conor McGregor in August 2016 when he takes on former lightweight champ Anthony Pettis. Pettis is coming off a violent knockout win over Stephen Thompson in March after an unsuccessful go with Tony Ferguson at UFC 229 in October 2018.
Not to be outdone, this card also features some critical gatekeeper-style matchups with Yoel Romero taking on Paulo Costa, Raphael Assuncao facing Cory Sandhagen and Derek Brunson battling Ian Heinisch. It's the opportunity for some of UFC's young prospects to make a splash.
CBS Sports will be with you throughout the week's festivities in Anaheim keeping you up to date on all things UFC. Below is your complete guide the UFC 241 PPV event.
