Two fights have been added to UFC on Fox 31, after the promotion announced that heavyweights Juan Adams vs. Chris de la Rocha and light heavyweights Adam Milstead vs. Mike Rodriguez have been booked for the December card.

Adams (4-0) is coming off of three TKO victories in a seven-month span, and made good on his Dana White Tuesday Night Contender Series opportunity against Shawn Teed with a first-round TKO to earn a Ultimate Fighting Championship contract.

Meanwhile, de la Rocha (5-2) lost his first two UFC appearances by knockout before finally winning his first fight inside the Octagon against Rashad Coulter in June.

Milstead is coming off of a split-decision loss to Jordan Johnson back in March, while his opponent Rodriguez will look to pick up his first UFC win after falling short in his promotional debut against Devin Clark in April.

Al Iaquinta will rematch Kevin Lee in the night’s main event, while strikers Edson Barboza and Dan Hooker will serve as the co-headliner.

The event will mark UFC’s return to Wisconsin on Dec. 15 at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee and the main portion of the card will air live on Fox.
