UFC Milwaukee Live Results
The Fox era of UFC comes to an end tonight, as the promotion holds one last UFC on FOX event tonight from the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The main event will see a rematch between current ranked lightweight contenders and former title challengers, as Kevin Lee faces Al Iaquinta. The two first met on the preliminary card of UFC 169, with Iaquinta taking a unanimous decision.
Lee was successful in his last outing, a fifth-round TKO via doctor stoppage against Edson Barboza back in April. Lee missed weight for the fight, but it was still a decent rebound from failing to win the interim lightweight title at UFC 216, where he suffered a third-round submission loss to Tony Ferguson. Lee has won six of his last seven bouts.
When Iaquinta was last seen, he was thrusted into the main event of UFC 223 – a fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov for the then-vacant lightweight title. Iaquinta had been scheduled to face Paul Felder but took the main event spot after several fallouts during fight week, particularly the day of weigh-ins. Iaquinta lost a one-sided decision but earned praise for his heart and grit, going the distance with the Dagestani champion. Prior to the loss, Iaquinta had won his last five fights.
