UFC on FOX 31: Erik Koch vs. Dwight Grant added

Two preliminary bouts have been confirmed by the UFC for Milwaukee’s UFC on FOX 31 card.

Welterweight Erik Koch (15-6-0) will take on Dwight Grant (8-1-0), while Jared Gordon (14-2-0) will battle Joaquim Silva (10-2-0) in a lightweight affair.

Koch, 29, has come back from injuries, but is trying to end a two fight losing skid. He trains with local MMA icon Duke Roufus and his last contest was a decision loss to Bobby Green at UFC on FOX 27 in January.

Grant, who previously toiled in Bellator and the indy circuit, finished Tyler Hill on the Dana White Contender Series. He has a seven fight win streak and is making his octagon debut.

UFC on FOX 31 is scheduled for Dec. 15 at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

More bouts are expected to be announced.
