The UFC wraps up their FOX run this weekend with their 31st show on ‘big FOX’. And, while it feels like neither party is all that interested in making a big display of their parting of ways, this final fight card is actually pretty solid. Top lightweight contenders Al Iaquinta & Kevin Lee face off in the main event, backed up by fellow divisional rivals Edson Barboza & Dan Hooker. Add Sergio Pettis’ reintroduction to Bantamweight and another action rematch, between Jim Miller & Charles Oliveira and it should be a solid main card, on top of an undercard filled with interesting prospects and seasoned veterans.
