UFC 241 weigh-in results: Heavyweight title fight set; Nate Diaz and Anthony Pettis on point

Daneil Cormier vs Stipe Miocic UFC 241 official weigh-in

The UFC 241: Cormier vs. Miocic 2 bouts are all official following Friday’s weigh-in festivities in Anaheim, Calif.

The card is topped by UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier’s second defense of his belt. He’ll put the title on the line against the man he took it from, Stipe Miocic, in a headlining rematch.

Neither man had any issue on the scale. Cormier weighed236.5 pounds, while Miocic tipped the scale at 230.5 pounds.

The UFC 241 co-main event casts a huge shadow over the event with the return of Nate Diaz after nearly three years on the sidelines. He returns from a loss to Conor McGregor by jumping right back into the deep end of the welterweight pool with a fan-favorite match-up with former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis.

Diaz hit the 170-pound mark on the nose, while Pettis weighed in at 169.5 pounds.

Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa square off in a pivotal middleweight contenders bout. Costa weighed in early at 186 pounds. Romero was the final fighter to step on the scale, weighing 184.5 pounds.

Manny Bermudez and Casey Kenney were both struggling to make weight for their preliminary bantamweight bout, so they negotiated a 140-pound catchweight ahead of the weigh-in. Both fighters easily hit the mark for the 140-pound catchweight limit, so neither was penalized.

Khabib Nurmagomedov: Conor McGregor should be arrested for pub punch

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov believes rival Conor McGregor should be in jail for punching an elderly man in an Irish pub.

Video surfaced this week of McGregor punching a man in an Irish pub, allegedly after the man refused a free pour of Proper No. 12 Irish whiskey. The whiskey is McGregor’s personal brand that has lit up the spirits industry.

Nurmagomedov’s issues with McGregor go way back before any of this happened, although the incident in question happened in April of this year. The two have long been at odds and it all boiled over when McGregor attacked a bus full of fighters, including Nurmagomedov at UFC 223. Nurmagomedov then climbed out of the Octagon after soundly defeating McGregor at UFC 229 in October of 2018 to fight with the Irishman’s cornerman in the crowd.

For this latest incident, coupled with McGregor’s past, Nurmagomedov was incredulous that Irish officials had not arrested McGregor and that U.S. officials hadn’t revoked his visa into the country.

While McGregor is currently on the sidelines, Nurmagomedov is slated to unify his UFC lightweight championship with the interim belt held by Dustin Poirier. Nurmagomedov and Poirier will headline UFC 242, the fight promotion’s Sept. 7 return to Abu Dhabi.

UFC president Dana White hasn’t indicated that any action is forthcoming from the UFC for McGregor’s latest out-of-the-cage actions, instead saying that his return to the Octagon depends on what happens when Nurmagomedov fights Poirier in September. McGregor is currently expected to fight either late this year or early 2020.

See Daniel Cormier, Stipe Miocic and the other fighters face-off at the UFC 241 Media Day. Well, watch the fighters face off, save for one notable absentee.

Nate Diaz was not at the UFC 241 Ultimate Media Day, and thus did not pose for his face-off with Anthony Pettis. He left UFC president Dana White to stand in for him.

Fear not, however, as the fight doesn’t appear to be in jeopardy. We are told that after an extended day with reporters on Wednesday, Diaz was granted UFC approval to skip the media day on Thursday and the fight will go on as planned.

Video surfaced early Thursday of former UFC champion Conor McGregor punching a bar patron, allegedly for refusing a shot of his Proper No. Twelve Irish whiskey.

The incident, according to TMZ, occurred on April 6 at The Marble Arch Pub in Dublin. McGregor apparently stepped into the pub to buy a round of his Proper No. Twelve Irish whiskey for the patrons, lining up glasses for each and pouring it himself. 

One man apparently refused the whiskey, which allegedly led to McGregor throwing a punch at the man. Two other men immediately grabbed McGregor and removed him from the pub, but the incident was caught on camera, which TMZ published on Thursday.

There was no sound on the recording, so it was unclear if or what was said between McGregor and the pub patron that refused his hospitality.

The incident occurred in April, but the police in Ireland told TMZ that “no arrests have been made to date.” So it is currently unclear if this incident will add to McGregor’s already lengthy list of out-of-the-cage issues.

When will Conor McGregor return to the UFC Octagon?

McGregor hasn’t set foot in the Octagon for nearly a year. After UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted him in the fourth round at UFC 229 on Oct. 6, 2018, there was a post-fight brawl with both men involved. McGregor is now clear of a six-month suspension stemming from that incident, but has yet to book his next fight.

UFC president Dana White has said repeatedly that he won’t figure out what is next for McGregor until after Nurmagomedov unifies his title with that of interim champion Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in September.

Fans have often clamored for a trilogy bout between McGregor and Nate Diaz, who fights Anthony Pettis on Saturday in the UFC 241 co-main event in Anaheim, Calif. The outcome of that bout could affect whom McGregor faces when he returns to the Octagon.

UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier isn’t scared of anyone. He’s also not all that concerned about Stipe Miocic’s feelings.

“I could give two s–ts about his feelings.”

Cormier appeared as confident as ever when he spoke to the media following his UFC 241 Open Workout on Wednesday in Anaheim, Calif. And why shouldn’t he? After all, Cormier knocked Miocic out in the first round the last time they fought.
