On Saturday night, the UFC will return to our screens with the stacked UFC Milwaukee card — the promotion’s final event on FOX.
This UFC Milwaukee card will be headlined by a high-stakes lightweight contender bout between fearsome contender Kevin Lee and recent short-notice title challenger Al Iaquinta.
The co-main event, meanwhile, will also occur in the lightweight division, as Brazil’s Edson Barboza is scheduled to meet fearsome finisher Dan Hooker.
Elsewhere on the card, we’ll see appearances from talented fighters like Rob Font, Sergio Pettis, Jim Miller, Charles Oliveira, and many others.
On Friday morning, the fighters scheduled to compete on this UFC Milwaukee card took to the scales to weigh in for their respective battles.
Unfortunately, the weigh-ins were marred by some drama, as Jessica-Rose Clark was deemed medically unable to compete for her flyweight fight with Andrea Lee. This bout was scrapped as a result.
