The UFC 241 event is putting its best foot forward with three huge matchups.

On the poster for the Aug. 17 show that takes place at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., the heavyweight championship rematch between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic loom large while stars Anthony Pettis, Nate Diaz, Yoel Romero, and Paulo Costa stand tall beneath them.

This will be Cormier’s second scheduled defense of the heavyweight title and Miocic’s first fight since Cormier defeated him for it last July.

UFC 241 also marks the return of Diaz from a three-year layoff. He’ll face Pettis, a former champion at 155 pounds, in a welterweight bout.

And middleweight contenders Romero and Costa will finally clash in a matchup that has seen several stops-and-starts on the way to it becoming official.
