What changed to give Miocic the upper hand?

After a almost three year hiatus, Nate Diaz showed that he has not missed a beat.

Elsewhere, welterweight star Nate Diaz (20-11) defeated Anthony Pettis (22-9) by unanimous decision in his first appearance since losing his rematch against Conor McGregor in 2016.

"I'm gonna fight the baddest dudes at the biggest shows, that's what I want to do", Diaz said. With Bellator holding a number of cards in the coming months, you can certainly expect to see Danis on one of them.


"I told him, 'Don't think about whether you want to fight again, you don't want to fight again and any of that stuff".

Middleweight Paulo Costa remained unbeaten after taking on two-time title challenger Yoel Romero.

As for Danis (2-0), he is coming off of a first-round submission win over Max Humprey in Belator. This time the fight went longer, but it was Miocic who rebounded with a fourth round knockout, regaining the championship.


All four fighters earned an additional $50,000 (USD) bonus. "I'm not going to wait a year to fight, so whatever is next, I'm ready".

And Jones, 32, took to Twitter to praise Miocic as the best heavyweight of all time and slate Cormier for being at the top of the UFC pound-for-pound rankings.

Nunes scored a first round knockout over de Randamie in their first bout, but de Randamie has not lost since, winning the featherweight title along the way with a win over Holly Holm at UFC 208.

Nunes, who only has one UFC loss to recently released Cat Zingano, will attempt to continue to build upon her resume as the greatest female fighter in UFC history.
