Daniel Cormier will put his heavyweight title on the line this weekend in a rematch against Stipe Miocic at UFC 241.
Cormier beat Miocic at UFC 226 in July 2018, delivering a sharp right hand in the first round of their bout in Las Vegas.
The 40-year-old defended his crown against Derrick Lewis last November and is now set to go toe-to-toe with Miocic again.
Meanwhile, Nate Diaz will also make his long-awaited return to the Octagon.
Diaz has not fought since his defeat to Conor McGregor in August 2016 but will make his comeback against Anthony Pettis on the undercard.
