Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up for its final event on FOX this Saturday night (Dec. 15, 2018), as the world’s leading mixed martial arts (MMA) organization invades the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for UFC on FOX 31.
Indeed, UFC inked a deal with ESPN — which begins at the start of 2019 — after the conclusion of its seven-year deal with FOX Sports. The promotion looks to end its relationship with FOX with a bang as Kevin Lee and Al Iaquinta will fight for the second time in a pivotal Lightweight showdown. Al initially beat Lee way back in 2014 at UFC 169, defeating the then UFC newcomer via unanimous decision.
The winner of the rematch will take a huge leap forward in a very-crowded 155-pound title picture. The co-main event will see another intriguing lightweight scrap as Edson Barboza faces Dan Hooker.
