The ordering process for Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-views has changed: UFC 241 is only available on ESPN+ in the U.S.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship returned to the land of Disney as the mixed martial arts giant invaded the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, with a heavyweight title clash between defending champ Daniel Cormier and former king Stipe Miocic.
Cormier opted to go with a mashup of songs from 2Pac and Lil Wayne as he aimed to defend his throne at UFC 241. He used the late 2Pac’s “When We Ride On Our Enemies” and then cut right into Lil Wayne’s “Right Above It.” Conversely, former champ Miocic opted to use Machine Gun Kelly’s “Till I Die” in his quest to regain that belt “DC” snatched from him last year.
Other standout tracks of the night were “Dream On” from classic rockers Aerosmith (Paulo Costa); Nas’ “Hate Me Now” (Anthony Pettis); the haunting “California Dreaming” from the mamas and the Papas (Jodie Esquivel); and Sabina Mazo gave fight fans “Fu-Gee-La” from the unfortunately long-defunct The Fugees.
