Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has been known to let interns drum up the creative art for its event posters, either that or someone keeps mailing it in, so it’s nice to see some effort was put into the sheet for UFC on FOX 31.
That’s the mixed martial arts (MMA) event that will feature the lightweight rematch between top contenders Kevin Lee and Al Iaquinta. The 17-3 “Motown Phenom” was bested by “Ragin’ Al” at the UFC 169 pay-per-view (PPV) in early 2014, but has since captured 10 of his last 12, including last April’s technical knockout win over Edson Barboza.
Speaking of Barboza, he’s also attached to UFC Milwaukee in a thrilling 155-pound showdown opposite streaking Dan “The Hangman” Hooker on Sat., Dec. 15, 2018 inside Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
As for Iaquinta (13-4-1), it’s been a road less traveled, winning five of his next seven fights but coming up short when it mattered most: his UFC 223 title shot against reigning division kingpin, Khabib Nurmagomedov, in their five-round decision last April.
