Andrea Lee will put aside the difficulties in her personal life and return to the Octagon to meet Jessica-Rose Clark at UFC on Fox 31.
The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the flyweight pairing on Tuesday. UFC on Fox 31 takes place in Milwaukee on Dec. 15. The main card will be the UFC’s last on the Fox Network, while prelims will kick off on UFC Fight Pass. A headliner for the card has not yet been revealed.
Lee has been in headlines recently after her husband, Donny Aaron, was charged with false imprisonment and domestic violence battery at the couple’s Shreveport, La., home last month. The 29-year-old made her promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 129, where she outpointed Veronica Macedo to run her career mark to 9-2.
Clark began her Octagon tenure with triumphs over Carina Damm, Bec Rawlings and Paige VanZant but dropped a unanimous verdict to Jessica Eye in her most recent outing at UFC Fight Night 132 on June 23. The 30-year-old Australian is 9-5 with one no contest over the course of her professional career.
