Kevin Lee-Al Iaquinta Rematch to Serve as Main Event for UFC on Fox 31 in Milwaukee

By Tristen Critchfield Oct 10, 2018


A rematch between Kevin Lee and Al Iaquinta will headlined UFC on Fox 31.

Promotion officials confirmed the lightweight booking to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Wednesday. UFC on Fox 31 takes place at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee on Dec. 15 and will also include a 155-pound clash between Dan Hooker and Edson Barboza.

Lee and Iaquinta initially fought at UFC 169, with Iaquinta taking a three-round verdict over “The Motown Phenom.” Lee has gone 11-2 in the Octagon since that defeat. Most recently, he stopped Barboza in the UFC Fight Night 128 headliner on April 28.

Iaquinta, meanwhile, is coming off a five-round loss to reigning lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223 in April. That snapped a five-bout winning streak for the Serra-Longo Fight Team product, who is 8-3 during his promotional tenure and 13-4-1 as a professional overall.
