Top Reasons to Tune into UFC 241 This Weekend! (Unsurprisingly, One is Conor McGregor)

Watch it or skip it?

With so many UFC events coming along every single week, sometimes it feels like the fight market is getting a bit over saturated. Plenty of people would disagree with that notion (me being one of them), but nevertheless, as a consumer you want to know if you should spend your hard earned cash on a pay-per-view event or if you’re just better off catching the highlights on ESPN.

The truth of the matter is that this weekend’s UFC 241 card is one that you should be throwing your money at!

Besides the obvious reasons (a crazy main event featuring Heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier and former divisional kingpin Stipe Miocic in an epic rematch, not to mention the return of Nate Diaz against the always exciting Anthony Pettis), UFC 241 definitely has some hidden gems to look forward to.

Real Life Superhumans Doing Battle!

Yoel Romero versus Paulo Costa alone is worth the price of a pay-per-view. Both fighters look like superheroes and both are super explosive with knockout power. That should be enough, but if it isn’t, let’s say that this is the MMA equivalent of Dexter Jackson versus Brandon Curry in bodybuilding. A younger up and comer trying to realize his potential against the ageless wonder who’s looking to show that he’s more than capable of taking out the young guns in his division.

Conor McGregor Reaction

There’s no doubt in my mind that Conor McGregor is going to have something to say about the co-main event. As a former rival of the brash Irishman, Nate Diaz is generating a ton of interest for this card.

Should Diaz defeat Anthony Pettis and call out Conor McGregor, then there’s no doubt that we’ll see a third fight between the two foes. Should Diaz be defeated, Conor McGregor will have a ton of ammunition to hurtle his way.

Regardless of the outcome, you can expect some cheeky response from Conor McGregor come Saturday night/Sunday Morning.

The Fights Will Be INSANE!

That’s pretty self explanatory, but just in case you need a bit more convincing, check out the breakdown below and see why this is a card you shouldn’t miss.
