UFC on Fox: Lee vs. Iaquinta 2 (also known as UFC on Fox 31) was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that was held on December 15, 2018 at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States.
A lightweight rematch between former interim title challenger Kevin Lee and Al Iaquinta served as the event headliner. The pairing met previously in February 2014 at UFC 169 with Iaquinta winning the fight via unanimous decision.
A women's flyweight bout between Jessica-Rose Clark and Andrea Lee was expected to take place at the event. However, Clark was forced out of the bout on weigh-in day as she was hospitalized due to a weight cutting issue and deemed medically unfit to compete by UFC physicians. As a result, the bout was cancelled.
