Stipe Miocic KO's Daniel Cormier To Reclaim Heavyweight Gold At UFC 241

Cormier knocked Miocic out in their bout past year to win the title and become a two-division champion.

After a canceled show earlier this year in Anaheim, the UFC returns to the Honda Center for one of it's biggest events of the year Saturday night, UFC 241.

The main event saw former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic take on Daniel Cormier in a rematch from their first fight at UFC 226, where "DC" won via first round knockout. In the process, Cormier became only the second fighter in UFC history to hold titles in multiple divisions simultaneously. "But I want to have a legacy where I'm a good dude, I'm a tough fighter, I've gone through adversity".

UFC 241: What Happened at Cormier vs Miocic II?

Miocic is not only the UFC Heavyweight champion once again, but he has defended his title more than anyone else in UFC heavyweight history. He attacked Daniel Cormier to the body in the fourth round with several solid shots.

Jupiter collided with a protoplanet early in its life say scientists
Before NASA's Juno mission launched to orbit and study Jupiter , scientists thought that the planet's core was dense and compact. Data from Juno have allowed scientists to create a precise picture of the gravitational fields of the giant planets .

Cormier told broadcasters following the fight, "I think he made a great adjustment", in reference to the adjustments Miocic made in the fourth. When Cormier was visibly weakened late in the round, Miocic managed to finish the fight with blows to the head.

Yes, you can't help but wonder how the fight would have unfolded, if Cormier had shot in more for takedowns. He's teased a retirement for the past few years but it's hard to see him going out like this.

Middleweight Paulo Costa remained unbeaten after taking on two-time title challenger Yoel Romero.

"The reason I was off is because everybody sucks", Diaz said in the octagon before calling for a bout against welterweight challenger Jorge Masvidal, rather than a lucrative trilogy fight with McGregor. "I just didn't really pay much attention except for just getting the job done".
