Diaz hasn’t fought in three years, since his second encounter with Conor McGregor, who took a majority decision at UFC 202. Before that, he sensationally submitted “The Notorious” in the second round, following a unanimous decision win against Michael Johnson.

Former UFC Lightweight champion Pettis is fresh of the win against Stephen Thompson earned by way of knockout in the second round in the headliner of UFC on ESPN+ 6 in March. Before that he suffered the second-round TKO defeat against Tony Ferguson.

In the main event of UFC 241 Daniel Cormier defends his heavyweight title against former champion Stipe Miocic in the championship rematch. Also on the card Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa square off at middleweight.

The current lineup for UFC 241 can be found below. Other matchups are expected to be announced in the near future.
