The UFC’s unbroken run of summer events culminates this Saturday with a fantastic PPV card. Say what you will about some of the recent Fight Night shows, but UFC 241 is exactly what fans should hope for if the promotion is going to steer premiere talent to pay-per-view. In the main event, heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier rematches the man he took the belt from, Stipe Miocic. Nate Diaz returns from a three-year hiatus to take on Anthony Pettis in the co-main. And seriously muscled middleweights Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa help round out a card high on action.

If you’re interested in the rest of the undercard action, check out our prelims Vivi below.
