The UFC is returning to Milwaukee, Wisconsin for the 31st and final iteration of UFC on FOX. In the main event, “Ragin” Al Iaquinta looks to validate his earlier victory from February of 2014 in a rematch against Kevin Lee. Since then, they both have left their mark on the lightweight division’s top 10. Lee is currently ranked as #4, and Iaquinta is sitting at #8. A win for either man will likely set up a title eliminator bout against another top lightweight.
The co-main event features two more top lightweights moving in opposite directions. #5 Edson Barboza looks to rebound after two devastating losses to Khabib Nurmagomedov and Kevin Lee. #14 Dan Hooker, on the other hand, wants to continue his electrifying climb up the lightweight rankings. He is riding a 4-fight winning streak all by stoppage.
Before we watch the co-main event, there will be an exciting fight in the bantamweight division. In that fight, Sergio Pettis looks to make a statement in his return to 135lbs against divisional mainstay Rob Font. The final UFC on FOX main card opens with a rematch between two accomplished UFC fighters that have stood the test of time. Charles Oliveira, who joined the UFC in 2010, will take on Jim Miller once again. Miller joined the UFC in 2008 and competes in his 31st UFC bout, the most appearances in the promotion’s history.
Follow along with MMASucka as we provide you with the results throughout UFC 231.
