The Octagon is Currently in Anaheim, California on Saturday, August 17 to Get a stacked UFC 241 card.

In the main event, heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier appears to defend his title in a rematch from Stipe Miocic from their fight in UFC 226 final summer.
The co-main occasion sees fan-favorites Anthony Pettis struggle Nate Diaz, although the card also has Yoel Romero vs Paulo Costa. The major card broadcasts reside on Brackets at 10 p.m. ET.
* All Odds Taken
Cormier (22-1 and yet another no-contest) is coming off of an entry win over Derrick Lewis at UFC 230 and is seeking to defend his heavyweight title for the first time. Before he knocked out Miocic at UFC 226 to win the belt and become a two-division champion.
Back in Strikeforce,’DC’ was also a heavyweight where he won the branch’s Grand Prix and is undefeated at heavyweight with notable wins over Josh Barnett, Antonio Silva, Frank Mir, and Roy Nelson.
Miocic (18-3) is coming from a weight reduction to Cormier past July and has been awaiting to get a rematch ever since. Prior to the reduction to’DC’ that the Cleveland-native defended his title a record three occasions because he knocked out Junior dos Santos, Alistair Overeem, and defeat Francis Ngannou by decision.
He won the buckle at UFC 198 if he pumped out Fabricio Werdum.
The chances suggest it’s going to be a close fight and a tough fight to predict, and I am in this boat. In the very first fight, Miocic had success on his toes using his reach and jab efficiently to keep at range and flame combinations at Cormier. Cormier’s game strategy finally won out because he was able to get inside and make it a’dirty’ boxing fight, where he’d clinch, throw elbows and short shouts — the exact punch that transpired Miocic out.
Within this fight, I do not find that happening, as I think it will be a very close battle, but the two can extend the distance. When they do, it will be Daniel Cormier obtaining his hand raised as he’ll utilize his wrestling inside this battle and his pressure to style and also dictate the pace to win a close battle.
Pick: Daniel Cormier (-140)
Pettis (22-8) is coming from his welterweight coming back in March at which he knocked out Stephen Thompson in spectacular fashion. Before he dropped to Tony Ferguson in UFC 229 later he’d beaten Michael Chiesa in UFC 226. ‘Showtime’ is that the former UFC lightweight champion and had fought to get a?? featherweight before.
Diaz (19-11) has not fought since UFC 202 at August of 2016 at which he lost to Conor McGregor. Since then, he has been on the sidelines for unidentified motives awaiting a fight. Before the loss to the Irishman, he beat him by submission at UFC 196.
Another superb close struggle to predict. Pettis has fought far more recently which I give the benefit to given that you never know what type of shape somebody would be in following three years away from the Octagon. Yet, the Diaz brothers ‘ are constantly training and in form, and at welterweight, the two fighters should be improved.
Within this fight, for Pettis, it’ll be tough to knock Diaz as he has a very good chin, but the potency at 170 is untrue. However, many are pointing towards Diaz’s speed and cardio which is a lot for Pettis that is a fantastic point, since they suit up so evenly standing and around the ground. However, I think Pettis is just slightly better and will receive his hand increased by choice.
Pick: Anthony Pettis (-125)
Here are the odds for your remaining battles on your card.
Let’s have fun and keep it civil.
