UFC 241 took place on Saturday and the co-main events delivered.

Middleweight: Paulo Costa (12-0-0) vs Yoel Romero (13-3-0)
In what could be the most entertaining fight of the 2019 UFC calendar, Paulo Costa picked up a unanimous decision victory over Yoel Romero.

The fight appeared to be close throughout the contest with both Costa and Romero landing numerous heavy blows in each round. The Cuban even took a barrage of body blows but emerged seemingly unfazed.

Costa would pressure his opponent early but slowed down as the fight went on. He took a total of 96 shots to the head from Romero. However, all three judges scored the middleweight contest 29-28.

The Brazilian remains undefeated, moving to 13-0 after the victory. After the bout the 28-year old said he was waiting for the winner of the Israel Adesanya-Robert Whittaker fight at October’s UFC 243.

Romero, 42, has now lost three of his last four fights and drops to 13-4 even though he has been impressive in his recent battles.

Welterweight: Anthony Pettis (22-8-0) vs Nate Diaz (19-11-0)
Nate Diaz’s nearly three-year layoff didn’t hinder him as he had a successful return to the Octagon.

In his first fight back, Diaz picked up a unanimous decision victory over Anthony Pettis in the first of two main events at UFC 241.

Diaz’s last fight was his UFC 202 loss to Conor McGregor in 2016. While he did look like he was tiring at times during the bout, he maintained pressure throughout the fight, showing an impressive stand-up and ground game.

On multiple occasions Pettis found himself up against the wall taking short punches and knees from Diaz. The 34-year old would get his opponent on the ground late in the fight but he could not lock in a submission.

After picking up the victory on the scorecards, Diaz called out fellow welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal.

Heavyweight: Daniel Cormier (22-1-0, 1 NC) vs Stipe Miocic (18-3-0)
In the main event of the card, Stipe Miocic regained the heavyweight championship when he got a fourth round TKO win over Daniel Cormier.

Cormier looked to controlling the re-match on the scorecard before Miocic wore the veteran down with numerous left hooks to the body. After landing several shots, the new champion to be landed big blows to the head prior to referee Herb Dean putting an end to the fight.

With the victory, Miocic moved to 5-1 in championship fights and has put himself up there with some of the all-time greats of the UFC’s heavyweight division. Cormier, on the other hand, dropped to 22-2 with one no contest. The only other time he had dropped a bout was to his rival Jon Jones.

The last time they met was last year when Cormier knocked out Miocic to take the title to go along with the light heavyweight title that he held at that time.

It would not be a shock if we got this match-up one more time to settle the score.

In the other two bouts that were on the main card, Sodiq Yusuff picked up a first round TKO at 4:14 against Gabriel Benitez and Derek Brunson picked up a decision victory over Ian Heinisch.
