A UFC Heavyweight Championship rematch between current champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Stipe Miocic is expected to serve as the event's headliner. The pairing met previously at UFC 226 on July 7 2018, when then UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Cormier knocked out Miocic in the first round to capture the heavyweight title.

A middleweight bout between former UFC Middleweight Championship challenger Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa has been scheduled for the event. The pairing was previously scheduled to take place at UFC 230, at UFC Fight Night: Cejudo vs. Dillashaw and again at UFC Fight Night: Jacaré vs. Hermansson but was scrapped each time for various reasons.

A lightweight bout was scheduled between John Makdessi and Devonte Smith for the event. However, it was reported on July 30 that Makdessi was forced to withdraw for undisclosed reasons. Returning veteran Clay Collard was briefly linked as the replacement. In turn, Collard was removed from the bout during the week leading up to the event due to an undisclosed medical issue. Smith will now face promotional newcomer Khama Worthy.

A flyweight bout was scheduled between Maryna Moroz and Poliana Botelho for the event. However, it was reported on August 1 that Moroz was forced to pull from the event citing injury. In early August, Botelho announced via social media that she was no longer participating in the event.

The bout between Manny Bermudez and Casey Kenney was originally scheduled to take place at bantamweight. However, the UFC decided to move the bout to a catchweight bout of 140 lbs. due to the fighters cutting substantial weight the night before weigh-ins.

Was so stoked to see DC get smashed in the 4th after talking so much trash about being the GOAT. Good lord I can't stand DC. But, more importantly, its good to see Ohio's own Stipe Miocic back on top.
Overall was a pretty good UFC241. Pretty good fights all around. The Pettis vs. Diaz fight was damn good, as was Romero vs. Costa, but feel Romero won that fight. Not sure how Costa got the decision when Romero took him down Twice, had more punches the 2nd round, and had more overall significant punches through total fight. But hey, I'm not a judge, so it is what it is.
